  • Micah Parsons heard plenty of sales pitches from Penn State fans during his Sept. 16 visit to Beaver Stadium

The move gives the Nittany Lions two five-star commitments ranked, with Parsons and wide receiver Justin Shorter. Reports surfaced Tuesday that Parsons self-reported a recruiting violation involving a picture he took with ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit and former Ohio State running back Eddie George on the set of ESPN's College GameDay.

Parsons is rated the No. 4 player nationally and top Pennsylvania prospect per 247 Sports.

Micah ParsonsFive-star 2018 weak-side defensive end Micah Parsons picked Penn State on Wednesday.

"As such, a violation of NCAA Bylaws 13.10.1 and 13.10.2.4 occurred, as members of the media may not be present during an institution's recruiting contact with a prospect and a prospect may not participate in team activities that would make the public or media aware of the prospect's visit to the institution", Ohio State's self-violation report said. The violations occurred on his official visit to Columbus on September 9th for the Oklahoma game, and stem from violations relating to interactions with ESPN's College GameDay.

He initially committed to Penn State in February 2016 but pulled it back in April, saying he committed too soon, though he did leave the door open for a return to the Nittany Lions. I mean seriously, a credential to go on set for 5 minutes to take a picture with Rece Davis is an extra benefit? I assumed he must be a recruit but had no idea who he was or what he was doing.


Parsons is widely expected to sign with Penn State, where he was once committed.

In the end, the Lions won out over Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

Parsons transferred to Harrisburg from Central Dauphin midway through his junior season and was a multi-position star for the Cougars.

Five-star defensive end Micah Parsons (6-foot-3, 235 pounds, Harrisburg, Pa.) has made a decision!
