Running back Jasper Parker verbally committed to play for Michigan on June 15. Given a four-star rating by Rivals, Parker received offers from Alabama, Florida State, USC and others. At 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, Parker is rated the No. 37 running back in the 2025 recruiting class.

Parker's Bio, Stats

Parker hails from Louisiana. He is entering his senior year in high school at Archbishop Shaw in Marrero, La.

For the 2025 cycle, Parker is the second-rated running back in the New Orleans metropolitan area, behind only five-star LSU commit Harlem Berry. He is highly touted for his excellent vision, north/south running, ability to break tackles and physicality as a blocker. During his junior year at Archbishop, he gained 1,300 total yards and scored 18 touchdowns.

Parker also plays point guard for his high school basketball team.

Sports Illustrated offered a positive assessment of Parker's running ability stating, "Parker has good vision, uses quick, choppy steps in the backfield and hits the hole with good balance. Parker is shifty as he negotiates his downfield blockers, and this resulted in a strong of long runs."

Kudos to RB Coach

Parker credited new Michigan running backs coach Tony Alford for his decision to commit to the Wolverines. He said he believes Alford will facilitate his development and growth.

Parker visited Ann Arbor twice, first back in April and then again this week. The deal was sealed for him after spending time with Alford, Michigan alumni and first-year coach Sherrone Moore. Parker said the energy during those meetings was "infectious."

Wolverines Building Momentum

After a slow start, the Wolverines have begun building momentum with their 2025 recruiting class. Parker's commitment came one day after Michigan landed four-star defensive back Kainoa Winston. The "Maize and Blue" now boast the No. 13 class according to On3. Headlined by 265-pound defensive lineman Nate Marshall, the Wolverines' 2025 class is currently comprised of eight highly-regarded athletes. In the expanded 18-team Big Ten Conference, Michigan trails only Ohio State (No. 1), USC (No. 4) and Oregon (No. 9).
