    Has anything changed with his recruitment since his visit during FNL?

    Micah Parsons official visit to Ohio State set, per Rivals.com

    If you want to win the battle for a top recruit, more often than not you’ve got to get him on campus regularly. In the last year, the Buckeyes have had no problem doing that with 5-star defensive end prospect Micah Parsons.

    In October, they’ll get another – and likely their final – chance to woo the country’s No. 5 overall prospect. He will be one of the dozens of recruits coming to town for the showdown in Columbus against Penn State on Oct. 28. Rivals.com’s Adam Friedman reported Parsons has named two official visits — Ohio State and Nebraska — and it seems that the final battle for his services could become an all-Big Ten battle.

    A former Penn State commit, Parsons remains very close to a number of Ohio State verbals, including Jaelen Gill, as well as defensive line coach Larry Johnson Sr. Those relationships are keeping the Buckeyes near the top of the list, as other programs such as Alabama, Florida State, Penn State and Nebraska try to unseat them.

    The 6-foot-3, 235-pound lineman, who is capable of playing linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme, is awaiting word on whether he’ll be able to enroll early and is working toward that goal. If that happens, he’ll make a college decision sooner than anyone anticipated, which is potentially good news for Ohio State because of the strength of its relationship with him.

    As usual with Parsons, it’s not over till it’s over, and there’s any number of ways this can shake out.

    SEE YOU SOON

    Though Ohio State has had no problems getting Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, five-star defensive end Micah Parsons to campus over the last year, he told Rivals' Adam Friedman he will take an official visit to Ohio State this fall.

    “I only have two official visits planned so far, and I'm trying to figure out the rest,” Parsons said. “I'll be at Nebraska for the Wisconsin game and Ohio State for the Penn State game. We haven't decided on the final three visits yet. We need to look at dates and who they are playing. We play a lot of Saturday games this year, so it's a little hard.”

    The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Parsons — a former Penn State commit who is considered the top-rated weak-side defensive end and No. 5 prospect overall in the Class of 2018 — has been to Columbus five times since the Buckeyes offered last fall, most recently for Friday Night Lights in July. He's very close with defensive line coach Larry Johnson and a number of current pledges, including five-star all-purpose back Jaelen Gill, who has essentially escorted him along the sidelines on game days.

    The Cornhuskers, meanwhile, have made a push since he took an unofficial visit for their midsummer recruiting extravaganza in late June. There's seemingly been a shift in culture under head coach Mike Riley, and Parsons' growing relationship with safety commit Brendan “Bookie” Radley-Hiles has made Lincoln an attractive oasis among a sea of corn.

    Teams like Alabama, Florida State, Miami and Penn State will all vie for the three other official visits, but it's becoming increasingly clear Ohio State and Nebraska have taken a lead in his recruitment. One thing to keep in mind, too, is that the general feeling surrounding Parsons was that he'd either end up with the Buckeyes or re-up with the Nittany Lions. But with that, sources close to the Penn State program have told Eleven Warriors the Nittany Lions have only one spot along the defensive line open for the current recruiting cycle.

    Surely they'd like to be in a position where they could land Parsons, New Jersey four-star Jayson Oweh and Cleveland Heights four-star Tyreke Smith, as Ohio State is. But maybe Parsons' indecisiveness on another trip to Happy Valley signifies they've either placed focus elsewhere or given up hope that he'll recommit?

    Anyway, Parsons doesn't anticipate that he'll make a decision on his future until he takes all five official visits, though I still expect him to end up with the Buckeyes when it's all said and done. Same with Oweh and Smith. Once that happens, he hopes to enroll early — and he'll find out if that's possible in the coming weeks.
