“Soon” for Parsons

The recruiting saga continues for five-star Micah Parsons as he heads into the last few months of the recruitment period. As the defensive end prepares for his final high school season, he’s putting recruiting to the side to focus on the field. Parsons spoke with Adam Friedman of Rivals and said that he has two official visits planned: Nebraska for their game vs. Wisconsin, and Ohio State vs Penn State in Columbus. The Harrisburg native has taken a great interest in Nebraska after his visit in June, and the Cornhuskers now look to be a real option for Parsons come time to commit.

"At Nebraska I liked how everything is so close together, the facilities, the coaching staff, how coach Riley really believes in turning things around at Nebraska and bringing back championships," Parsons told Rivals

There’s still a long way to go though, as Parsons has three more official visits left to schedule. So it's important to remember that the term "soon" is relative.

All America Game

Penn State commit PJ Mustipher committed Thursday to play in the Under Armour All-American game in January at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. The four-star defensive tackle committed to the Nittany Lions earlier this month after deciding on 16 offers.

Mustipher will join fellow Penn State commits Justin Shorter, Ricky Slade, and Shaquon Anderson-Butts. Targets Tyreke Smith, Jayson Oweh, Eyabi Anoma, and Justin Fields are also scheduled to be in attendance as of now.

Top-7 for Enis 

In case you missed it, Penn State legacy player Solomon Enis announced his top-7 schools, and Penn State is included along with Ole Miss, Cal, USC, and others.

Though space is very tight with the 2018 class nearly full, it sounds like the staff would accept a commitment from Enis right now (not sure the same can be said of other receiver targets). Still, if Enis waits too long, it's possible there may not be any room left in Happy Valley, even for a legacy from the west coast like himself.
