While Morgan Moses continues to ponder his future and where he'll attend school, K.P. Parks is very committed to honoring his verbal commitment to Virginia. Parks emphasized this the day after Al Groh was fired and gave Cavalier fans another reason to be excited about what they are getting in 2010.

The senior running back put together a great performance on Saturday in the 73rd Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas. This all-star classic pits the best football players from North Carolina and South Carolina up against each other. Parks suited up for the Tar Heel State and did not disappoint, rushing for 98 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown. His efforts led the North Carolina squad to a 24-14 victory and earned him offensive MVP honors for the North Carolina squad.

When Parks brings his game to Charlottesville, he'll bring with him exceptional credentials that speak for themselves from his high school career. He is the state of North Carolina's all time leading rusher, tallying 10,895 yards during his high school career.

Parks is one of 17 commitments for Virginia's class of 2010. Most of them have said they will remain firm in their commitments to the Cavaliers since the November 29 firing of Groh.
