Parker injured his left knee during a special teams against UTEP where he was blocking on a punt return. He started eight games for the Sooners last year and was supposed to be a starter this season. However, he was beat out by Parnell Motley for the position during fall camp.

Last year as a freshman, Parker recorded a fumble recovery, a forced fumble, 36 total tackles and one tackle for loss. He was still expected to be a huge part of the secondary this year despite not being a starter and now will have to wait next season to contribute.
