Micah Parsons will enroll early at Penn State, per report


Micah Parsons will enroll early at Penn State following his decision to sign with the Nittany Lions Wednesday during the new early signing period, his father told Ryan Snyder of Rivals.

Parsons immediately becomes Penn State’s highest-profile and top-rated recruit. He’s the No. 4 overall recruit in the Class of 2018, per 247Sports composite rankings. He originally committed to the Nittany Lions back in February 2016 before reopening his recruitment in April 2017. Returning to a school after de-committing is a rare move in college football, though it’s certainly not unprecedented.

“You know, we never said that wasn’t going to be the place. He just wanted a little peace,” his father, Terrence, told Land of 10’s Tyler Donohue in September. “Before he de-committed, he reached out to Coach [James] Franklin and said, ‘If I de-commit, is my offer still on the table?’ Coach Franklin said, ‘Until you tell us you don’t want to come here, your offer is still on the table.’

As an early enrollee who would start classes and practice at Penn State in January, Parsons could start competing for a starting spot right away.
