EA Sports saw nearly unanimous approval Friday of its new trailer for the highly anticipated College Football 25 video game that will be released in July.

That's almost full approval—because Clemson Tigers redshirt senior offensive lineman Walker Parks has one issue with it. The 6'5", 310-pound lineman wasn't too thrilled with how he looked in a scene that showed the Tigers preparing to take the field at Memorial Stadium.

Parks is entering his fifth season at Clemson. He's appeared in 39 games (28 starts) over the last four years, winning the starting right tackle job as a sophomore in '21 and shifting over to right guard in '22. Parks suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the second game of the '23 season and has been working his way back ever since.

Parks recently confirmed that he has been medically cleared to return to the field.

"Back in action. That’s been super nice," he said earlier this week on the Tigers' 2 Right Turns podcast. "I’ve been back at workouts for the last two weeks, running around, doing heavy sled, squatting, running. I got wiped out last season pretty bad with a nasty ankle injury, but I’m back. So, that’s been huge. Put me in good spirits."

Parks and the Tigers are looking to improve on their 9–4 campaign last year, the program's lowest win total since coach Dabo Swinney's second year on the sidelines in 2010.
