5 Transfer Portal Landing Spots for Henry Parrish Jr.: Is Ole Miss the Team To Beat?

    Former Ole Miss and Miami running back Henry Parrish Jr. is back in the transfer portal. Where do the Rebels rank among his top landing spots?

    The spring college football transfer window is in full swing, and several premier playmakers have entered their names. Among them is former Miami Hurricanes running back Henry Parrish Jr., who returns to the portal for the second time in three years.

    College Football Network has five potential landing spots for the redshirt senior running back.

    Landing Spots for Henry Parrish Jr.

    Parrish has been a rotational back at his last two schools, just clearing 100 carries in each of the previous three seasons. This past season was probably his best on record, as he averaged 6.25 yards a carry and scored six touchdowns for the Hurricanes. He’s originally from Miami, so he’s likely moving somewhere where he can be the lead rusher.

    Ole Miss Rebels

    Could Parrish be one of those guys who transfers back to his original school? Ole Miss has been actively seeking running backs in the portal after losing Quinshon Judkins to Ohio State.

    There’s familiarity with the staff and offense, and plenty of room on the depth chart. Could the Rebels be the team to beat here?

    East Carolina Pirates

    East Carolina has long been an attractive place for offensive playmakers, and the Pirates have a new link to Parrish. Long ago, Parrish was committed to playing for Pittsburgh, where new ECU special teams coordinator and offensive assistant Andre Powell coached running backs.

    The depth chart is attractive, and the Pirates have put multiple running backs in the NFL in the last few seasons.

    Florida Gators

    Following a mass exodus in the first portal window, the Florida Gators still have several holes on its roster, including one at running back.

    Parrish could stay in-state while playing college football at the highest level. He’s talented enough to compete in the SEC (in fact, he already has at Ole Miss) and would likely improve his draft stock.

    USC Trojans

    The Trojans landed former Mississippi State running back “Woody” Marks in the portal but might not be done at the position. Parrish was recruited fairly heavily by the West Coast power out of high school and could thrive there.

    He would likely be the run-first back in the Trojans’ pass-heavy offense, but MarShawn Lloyd thrived there last year and flashed as a pass catcher, improving his draft stock.

    Mississippi State Bulldogs

    The Bulldogs landed Rashad Amos in the portal just a few weeks ago, but they could still be actively trying to add to the running back room.

    Jeff Lebby and his staff like to rotate running backs, so there should be plenty of room for him on the roster. Again, this would be a chance to shine in the toughest conference in the country.
