SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Despite the limitations in recruiting, Utah football has landed another prospect in the 2021 class in running back Ricky Parks.

Parks is a three-star prospect from Tampa, Florida. He is the 20th ranked running back in the nation and the No. 56 recruit in the state of Florida.

The Tampa, Florida native announced his commitment on Twitter on Sunday.

“First off I would like to thank god for blessing me and putting me in this position,” Parks wrote. “I would like to thank my family for supporting me throughout this process. Thank you to all the coaches who believed and saw something in me. I would like to thank my cousin for training me and helping me develop my craft. Thank you to everyone who was with me throughout the process. With that being said I will be furthering my education and developing my talent at… The University of Utah.”

Parks received offers from Central Michigan, Florida State, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Carolina, UCF, USF, Virginia and West Virginia.

He is the sixth recruit to verbally commit to Utah in the 2021 recruiting class, joining four-star quarterback Peter Costelli, three-star linebacker Trey Reynolds, three-star offensive lineman Koli Faaiu, three-star defensive end Viliami Pouha and Snow College transfer defensive tackle Tevita Fotu.

According to 247 sports, Parks is the second highest rated commitment in Utah’s 2021 class.
