Five Star Defensive End Micah Parsons Commits

Urban Meyer Micah Parsons-NCAA violation-recruiting-early signing period

Parsons' recruiting odyssey included him giving a verbal commitment to the Lions in February 2016, reopening the process this past April to take more visits and finally inking with Penn State on Wednesday, the first day of the new early signing period.

Penn State received signed national letters of intent Wednesday from its other five-star players - wide receiver Justin Shorter of Monmouth Junction, N.J., and running back Ricky Slade of Woodbridge, Va.

He was previously recruited by Ohio State, but the Buckeyes chose to stop recruiting the top prospect after self-reporting a violation during his visit to Columbus while ESPN's College GameDay was in town. But one of the schools we can rule out for Parsons' signature is Ohio State.

Virgin Hyperloop One wins key DP World funding
Several companies have formed to make the Hyperloop vision a reality, but Virgin Hyperloop One has arguably come the closest. But among publicly released hyperloop tests, the previous record holder was Elon Musk , with a speed of 220 miles per hour .

Parsons is the third five-star recruit to commit this winter to the Nittany Lions, and the 21st player overall.

The report said that was the reason the Buckeyes had stopped pursuing Parsons, which the player and his father denied, as did a handful of other Ohio State media outlets.

College GameDay analyst Kirk Herbstreit, a former Ohio State quarterback, found himself with a (probably small) role in Ohio State's doomed Carman recruitment, and he turned out to be an unwitting central figure in the Buckeyes' pursuit of Parsons.

Coast Village Road between Olive Mill Road and Hot Springs Road is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. The Thomas Fire is 45 percent contained. "The weather conditions were just right for us".

Parsons was then back to the drawing board, and took visits to Georgia, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Penn State before ultimately deciding on the latter.

Herbstreit tweeted out his side of the story late on Tuesday night. He signed with Penn State. With this top-five recruiting class, Franklin has a crop of elite athletes capable of keeping the Nittany Lions at the top of the Big Ten and in the College Football Playoff conversation. It also doesn't mean the Parsons violation was his problem, because it wasn't.

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