PA DE Micah Parsons 'Officially' Reopens His Recruitment

The 2018 five-star prospect says the Nittany Lions are still in the mix but that he made his college choice too early.

It’ll be interesting to see if Pennsylvania five-star DE Micah Parsons' de-commitment from Penn State turns out to be as “official” as his commitment was more than a year ago.

Of course, there is nothing the slightest bit official about prospect commitments, nothing that actually binds them to a college program. Nothing is set in stone until they sign a Letter of Intent after their high school career is complete.

Parsons committed to Penn State in late February of 2016, following his sophomore season at Central Dauphin High in Harrisburg. But he continued making visits to other schools, causing many to wonder why he had committed anywhere in the first place.

Sunday night, Parson’s announced via Twitter what nearly everyone who follows recruiting expected — that we made his college choice too soon and he had “officially” de-committed from Penn State.


Parsons, who transferred from Central Dauphin to Harrisburg High in the middle of the 2017 season, said Penn State was still among his leading schools.

Other schools that appear to be of the most interest to Parsons are Alabama, Ohio State and Georgia.

Parsons visited Penn State for the Blue-White Game over the weekend.
