    Micah Parsons clears the air, but is it too late for the Buckeyes?

    Thanks to the magic of All-American games, there are a lot of dudes getting some attention this week. One of them is 5-star defensive end Micah Parsons.

    Land of 10’s Tyler Donahue was in Harrisburg, Pa., on Tuesday to talk with Parsons, and the discussion — of course — eventually turned to his recent visit to Columbus. After the controversial tweet about the Buckeyes quarterback situation, Parsons’ father, Terrance, told Land of 10 that things are patched up between the two sides, but it appears there was a slow-down in communication almost immediately.

    Terrence strongly indicated that communication between the Parsons family and Ohio State has become limited. Micah painted a more positive picture.

    “We all good,” he said, explaining Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer sent him a text message that cleared the air.

    Ohio State hasn’t walked away from Parsons, sources close to the Buckeyes say. But there’s no doubt that the tenuous relationship got tested a bit in the last two weeks.

    “They’re still in our top 4,” Terrence Parsons said of the Buckeyes. “If they happen to pull the offer, then that’s the way it is. We’re following God’s path, and as they say, when one door closes, God will open another one.”

    Nebraska is the next official visit for Parsons but there’s a lot of uncertainty in that program, as well. The university fired athletic director Shawn Eichorst on Thursday, and the odds are pretty high that Mike Riley’s job will be next barring a sudden turn of face from the Nebraska football team.

    Penn State, where Parsons was originally committed, remains in play. So does Ohio State. So does Nebraska and Georgia and heck, anyone else.

    As we’ve said for months, this recruitment will be nuts until the last moment.

    I agree...

    "Hey Ohio State. It's not fair that you have produced such great talented people that visit your campus when you host big time opponents! It's also unfair that you are good at football and your fans show up in droves so shows like College Game Day choose to visit your campus!"

    It also states that his parents asked if they could go to set while with their host bc they hadn't seen it before, and Herbstreit invited them up when he recognized the host.

    Between commercial breaks, Herby then invited Parsons up to stage, when the photos were taken.

    That's hardly a case of the school going out of its way in an official capacity to use gameday as a recruiting tool (not that I think it's wrong to do so).

    All of these recruiting rules are getting out of hand tbh

    The reason Ohio State walked away was not the NCAA violation..............

    It was reported and no issue going forward............

    It was everything else.......

    I'm ok not recruiting Parsons. He's a very good talent don't get me wrong but something doesn't feel right with him.

    Substitute the word Carman for Parsons and I 100% agree.

    I've thought that about both more than once.
