Five-star 2018 recruit Micah Parsons picks Penn State

Five-star 2018 recruit Micah Parsons picks Penn State

Five-star defensive end Micah Parsons committed to play his college football at Penn State on Wednesday.

The Harrisburg (Pa.) five-star defensive end picked Penn State moments ago during a ceremony at his high school.

Parsons had initially swerved the live audience with his video by turning down the Penn State shirt when offered.

A Central Pennsylvanian product, Parsons committed to Penn State in February 2016, about two years before his signing date. So, too, are four-star tight ends Pat Freiermuth and Zack Kuntz, four-star offensive linemen Nana Asiedu and Juice Scruggs, big-time defensive tackle prospect PJ Mustipher and the class' only quarterback commit, three-star Will Levis.

It's official! Harrisburg's Micah Parsons has signed with... Ohio State self-reported the violation and reached an agreement with the enforcement staff that included a letter of reprimand and a round of compliance education for the Buckeyes' recruiting staff and the "College GameDay" producers.

Ohio State's self-violation report said.

The top-ranked uncommitted player in the class of 2018 revealed his college decision on the first day of the early signing period.

To be crystal clear-I can assure you @EddieGeorge2727 & I HAD NO IDEA who we took a picture with that day. Parsons and a few other top recruits who took in the loss to the Sooners called for quarterback J.T. Barrett to be replaced with his backup, whom they had met on the trip.

But Parsons is bringing his dominating presence to Happy Valley. I can do that at Penn State. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound athlete ran for almost 800 yards and 18 touchdowns on offense, adding another two scores on receptions.

The Lions' new freshman class includes one Philadelphia area player, linebacker Nick Tarburton of Pennridge High School.
