Surrounding by his teammates, Texas Tech University safety Justus Parker received a monumental phone call from NFL stars Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots.

According to Sports Illustrated, head coach Kliff Kingsbury enlisted Texas Tech alumnus Amendola to deliver the message; however, it was Gronk who officially told Parker he's on a scholarship.

Last season, Parker made 42 tackles for the Red Raiders and was named a Second-Team All-Big 12 honoree.
