Norvell: Parchment brings ‘home-run threat’ to FSU

Florida State formally announced the addition of graduate transfer wide receiver Andrew Parchment on Monday.

Parchment had 89 receptions for 1,028 yards and nine touchdowns in two seasons at Kansas. The Fort Lauderdale native played at Cypress Bay High before also spending time at Northern Illinois and Iowa Central CC.

“We’re extremely excited about Andrew joining our program,” FSU coach Mike Norvell said. “We feel like he brings a great play-making ability and home-run threat to the receiver position. Being from Florida, it’s also a great opportunity for him down here as he finishes his college career in front of family and friends as a Seminole.”

Parchment caught 24 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns in 2020, one in which Kansas struggled at quarterback. In 2019, Parchment caught 65 passes for 831 yards and seven touchdowns. He ranked fifth in the Big 12 in receptions and sixth in yards and touchdowns.

The addition of Parchment brings a veteran presence to the FSU wide receiver group. Ontaria Wilson, Camren McDonald and Keyshawn Helton are the only returning FSU players who caught more than 10 passes in 2020. The Seminoles are also optimistic about the development of redshirt freshmen like Bryan Robinson and Kentron Poitier as well as early enrollees Malik McClain and Joshua Burrell. Four-star prospect Destyn Hill also will arrive at FSU this summer.
