Basketball guard Josh Parrish leaving program after one season

Print Article
With TCU senior guard Brandon Parrish, the Horned Frogs’ career leader in games played, graduating in May, it was expected that his first-year brother Josh would stick around and carry on the Parrish basketball legacy another three to four years.

That will no longer be the case.

Josh announced his decision to change schools Monday night on Twitter.

The younger Parrish played sparingly last season, seeing the court for just 48 minutes in TCU’s 39 games.

Two of Josh’s roommates, first-year guards Jaylen Fisher and Desmond Bane, each averaged over 20 minutes per game last season. Bane played in all 39, while Fisher played in 35 games, injuring his wrist in the Horned Frog’s first round NIT win over Fresno State.

Brandon respected his little brother’s decision, tweeting support shortly after Josh’s social media announcement.

Both of the brothers cherished their time playing in Fort Worth together for one last time, with Josh soaking in all the advice Brandon has given him. Brandon and Josh Parrish talked about playing college basketball together at TCU at the beginning of March.

Parrish has not announced the school where he intends to play basketball next.
