Shortly after making an official visit, Deloye gave his formal commitment to the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where he will compete as a decathlete the next four years.

"I remember watching online and on ESPN those guys in the SEC winning and doing great things," Deloye said. "I imagined what it would be like to compete at the Division I level, and now I get my chance."

Deloye selected Kentucky from a group of schools that included Auburn, Arkansas, Illinois, and Illinois State.

"(Parker) has worked so incredibly hard this off season to get ready and it's nice to see him rewarded for all of his hard work," said Barrington track and field coach Todd Kuklinski.

Deloye has qualified for the state track meet as a sophomore in the high jump, when he attended Stevenson, and last season as a junior after transferring to Barrington. Deloye earned his first state medal by placing third as a member of the Broncos 800-meter relay team.
