Former Penn State All-American linebacker Micah Parsons was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the 12th pick in the first round of Thursday's NFL Draft. Parsons returns to the scene of the crime of his final college game where he won the MVP in the 2019 Cotton Bowl. Needless to say, Penn State Twitter was thrilled to see Linebacker U see their guy go early in the draft.
Without further ado, away we go.

At No. 12 overall, Micah Parsons becomes Penn State's highest-drafted linebacker in 21 years -- since one of his inspirations, LaVar Arrington, went second.— Derek Levarse (@TLdlevarse) April 30, 2021
Arrington, Bowman and now Parsons.
