It was the shot heard around ESPNU.
Narbonne High's Sean Parker said, "No!" to Michigan.
He shunned home-state Southern California.
When it was time to put on a hat at 8 a.m. PST, in front of a national audience, the sought-after safety chose the purple and gold of Washington, giving coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff a signing-day jolt.
Never miss a local story.
What swayed him ultimately was the Huskies' lack of depth in the back end of the secondary, and the chance to play immediately.
More information later.
