Parker Brown spent the past couple of days deciding his future.
There was a time it didn't look so promising.
He said he used to smoke marijuana and that was all he cared about every day. Those days no longer exist in Brown's life.
Brown turned things around before his senior year at Corona del Mar High. He killed his addiction and became sober.
Figuring out what college Brown plans to play for is what he contemplated the last couple of days. He took off for Catalina Island with a couple of friends and his mother, Carol Peck.
"It definitely kind of helps me to get away from other people and their input on what I'm going to want to do in the next four years," Brown said. "It's a big decision and I know it's going to effect me for the rest of my life."
By the time you read this, Brown might have made his collegiate choice. The final three schools on his list were UCLA, USC and Pepperdine.
