5-star Pennsylvania recruit Micah Parsons signs with Penn State

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

Penn State got the ultimate early holiday gift Wednesday, when five-star defensive end Micah Parsons committed to the Nittany Lions.

This also isn't the first time Herbstreit has gotten involved with Ohio State recruiting.

Parsons is rated the No. 4 player nationally and top Pennsylvania prospect per 247 Sports. Parsons met with Kirk Herbstreit and Eddie George, Buckeyes legends who are now members of the media, leading to the violation.

Carman appeared to leave the exchange on poor terms with the guys on the other end of the argument: one 2018 OSU recruit, one OSU player, and one former OSU player who now covers the team regularly in his role with ESPN.

The Buckeyes are still expected to have one of the top classes in the country, but no matter whose version of "why" you believe it's clear that Micah Parsons won't be putting on a Buckeyes hat.

Nebraska, Oklahoma, Alabama and Georgia were just a handful of suitors after Parsons' services on the recruiting trail.

The five-star defensive end attended the Ohio State-Oklahoma game on September 9 and met with the ESPN College GameDay crew while at the game.

However, Dave Biddle of 247Sports spoke to an Ohio State source that indicated that the NCAA violations are not the reason Urban Meyer and his staff stopped recruiting Parsons.

"I think overall we did a pretty good job of [filling needs]", Franklin said.

Parsons wasn't the only big signing from a player that wasn't already committed, as four-star wide receiver Jahan Dotson announced he was decommitting from UCLA and signing with Penn State.

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

The five-star defensive end won't start with his hand in the dirt.

The 6-3, 235-pounder hails from Harrisburg, Pa. (Harrisburg).
