BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Former LSU quarterback Peter Parrish has chosen to transfer to Memphis to continue his college football career.

Parrish tweeted on Thursday, August 6, that he is committed to those Tigers.

Parrish joins former Zachary quarterback Keilon Brown in Memphis. The Tigers have the top group of five recruiting class in the country right now.

The south Louisiana to Memphis pipeline is getting stronger than ever, with multiple players already on the roster or future Tigers that call the Greater Baton Rouge area home. Two staffers with ties to the area are big reasons why. They are former Southern recruiting coordinator Sherman Wilson and passing game coordinator John Simon, a graduate of Southern Lab.

Shea Dixon with 247Sports reported just three days earlier that Parrish had entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Parrish’s name was no longer listed on the Tigers’ football roster as of Friday, July 3, Dixon previously reported.

He is a former four-star, dual-threat quarterback prospect from Central High School in Phenix City, Ala.


Head coach Ed Orgeron announced on March 10 that Parrish had been suspended indefinitely from the LSU football program for violating team rules.

Details about the violation were not provided.

Parrish did not participate in the few practices the team held before activities were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
