    Micah Parsons | DE | Harrisburg (Pa.) | National Rank: 3 | Position Rank: 1

    There was no shortage of flirtation between Ohio State and Micah Parsons when he was committed to Penn State ― he visited a handful of times in the last year ― and now that the 6-foot-3, 235-pound lineman is free of that verbal commitment, expect things to ratchet up a few more notches with the Buckeyes.

    Defensive line coach Larry Johnson has been all over Parsons for a while now, offering his prodigious NFL success and his unique ability to help shape young men as the reason for Parsons to choose Ohio State. There have been off-and-on rumors that off-the-field concerns have caused some schools to back off their efforts, but Johnson and the Buckeyes have shown no signs of a slowdown.

    Don’t expect a decision from Parsons until signing day. Today, Ohio State is considered the most likely landing spot for the country’s third-ranked prospect. The Buckeyes will need the help at defensive end in 2018 and beyond with three big-time losses at the position upcoming.

    NARROWING THINGS DOWN ONCE AGAIN

    A little over a month after he decommitted from Penn State, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, five-star defensive end Micah Parsons included Ohio State in his Top 9 alongside Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State. And before you comment, he corrected his mistake in a follow-up tweet.

    The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Parsons is considered the top-rated weak-side defensive end and No. 3 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, as he's tallied 190 tackles, 47 tackles for a loss and 32 sacks through his first two high school seasons. He backed off his pledge to the Nittany Lions just one week after an unofficial trip to Columbus for the Buckeyes' Spring Game, his fourth visit in a matter of six months.

    Parsons has kept a low profile since opening things back up, but Ohio State has become the overwhelming favorite as a result of those visits. He's close with four-star running back commit Jaelen Gill, who told Eleven Warriors he's taken it upon himself to make sure Parsons ends up with the Buckeyes.

    “[I'm] on him every day. Just putting it in his head, 'You're gonna be a Buckeye,'” Gill said. “I'm real confident we'll get him to flip. I mean, he named his dog Brutus...”

    Gill and at least five other Ohio State commits will participate in Nike Football's The Opening Finals in Oregon next month. You can bet they'll be in Parsons' ear the whole time, though all signs point toward a final announcement at the U.S. Army All-American Game or on National Signing Day.
