Parker, who helped the Clemson baseball team reaching the final four of the 2010 College World Series, was selected by the Colorado Rockies with the 26th selection overall pick in this year.
However, Parker said the only option was to play baseball ruled exclusively for the Rockies. He said negotiations will continue with the Rockies, but meanwhile will play football for the Tigers.
“I am thrilled with this decision,” said Parker. “I’m ready to return to Clemson, working with my teammates and coaches football and get ready for the season. The closer we get to the soccer season to think about playing in Death Valley, running down the Mount and be part of the tradition of Clemson football. ”
In 2009, Parker led the Clemson football team to a 9-5 record and victory over Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. He completed 205-of-369 passes for 2526 yards and 20 touchdowns with 12 interceptions in 14 games.
“We are very pleased that Kyle back,” said Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney. “Whenever you have an athlete returning starter at quarterback who took the title of the Atlantic Division, which is a real advantage for your team. It is dynamic, which brings many positive things to our offense.”
