Notre Dame Offer "Means A Lot" To 2024 Forward Royce Parham

October 8, 2022

Royce Parham‍ remains excited about the offer the 2024 Pittsburgh forward landed from the Irish men’s basketball program a couple weeks back.

“It means a lot that a great school such as Notre Dame shows interest in me by offering me and wanting me to be on the team,” the 6-foot-9, 200-pounder told Irish Sports Daily this week.

“I know they have a really good basketball program and a good football program. They've been really good and they have a really good coach.”

Parham’s offer list also includes schools like Maryland, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Rutgers, Penn State and Wisconsin among several others. He’s taken an official to Wisconsin already – “It was really good,” – and has plans to take one to South Bend soon.

“The first weekend of November for the Clemson football game,” he said of his upcoming official to Notre Dame.

“I just want to see how the campus is, how the facilities are, how the coaches are and how the players are and how they practice and work as a team.”

Parham will be at Maryland this weekend and then has another official set for next weekend along with multiple unofficials down the road.

“I'm going up to Penn State for an official,” he said of his plans next weekend. “Then, I should be going up to Xavier soon for an unofficial, but I don't know exactly when. Then I was going up to (Notre Dame) obviously. Then, I'm going to go visit Marquette in February.”

It’s still relatively early, but Parham knows what will be most important to him when he’s looking at choosing a school.

“How well they communicate with me,” he said. “For example, some schools offered me and I haven't heard a word back from them since they offered me.

“How their coach is, how he runs everything and just how he is as a person. I also want to make sure the organization is functional and it's not like dysfunctional and everything's good there.”
