Malkom Parrish is UGA’s most underrated player

One guy that no one talks about is Georgia Football’s Malkom Parrish.

The most underrated player on Georgia Football’s roster is Malkom Parrish. You could make an argument for several players, but Parrish is the most worthy of this distinction.

If you don’t know, the Quitman, Ga., native plays cornerback for the Dawgs. The 5-10, 194 pound junior is a super athletic guy who not only has a ridiculous motor but has mad hops as well.

In his freshman season in 2014, Parrish played in 11 games and had 17 total tackles and forced a fumble. As a sophomore (last season) at UGA, he improved on his freshman campaign by registering 42 total tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, a sack and even a blocked punt. Parrish stood out in his last two games especially as he intercepted a pass against Georgia Tech and had six tackles in the bowl win over Penn State.

This spring Parrish also received praise and recognition as he earned the Coffee County Hustle Award for showing the most drive, determination and obviously hustle.

Georgia’s secondary is one of the most experienced groups coming back for the Bulldogs in 2016. That’s really good considering UGA had the No. 1 pass defense in the country last year.

Dominick Sanders and Quincy Mauger are the most talked about players in the UGA secondary and for good reason. Unfortunately, they overshadow a guy like Malkom Parrish.

Parrish is poised for a big year at corner. He was always a guy that made plays but looks to do even more this fall. Georgia is looking for some true No.1 shutdown corners, and one of the positions seems to be in good hands with Parrish.
