Junior college star Parrish sticking with Wolf Pack

By  | 

Reno, NV (KOLO) - After contemplating a move to a different school, Eric Parrish has decided to honor his commitment to play for Nevada.

The 6'6" guard averaged over 18 points, nearly nine rebounds and over six assists per game last season at Bossier Parrish Community College in Louisiana. He was named the state's Junior College Player of the Year.

Parrish began his college career at the University of Akron, where he averaged 8.8 points and 4.7 rebounds his freshman season. He started 21 games for the Zips.

Parrish's announcement makes two players committed to Nevada and new head coach Steve Alford. Jazz Johnson announced he'd return to Reno the day Alford was introduced. A myriad of Wolf Pack players are still testing the transfer portal, including Jordan Brown, Lindsey Drew, Jalen Harris, Nisre Zouzoa, Shamiel Stevenson, JoJo Anderson, KJ Hymes and Jalen Townsell.
