Overheard On Twitter: Micah Parsons’ Official Visit To Ohio State

As most things go for Micah Parsons, his official visit to Ohio State over the weekend was riddled with social media-induced confusion and undue celebrity for a high school player. After committing to Penn State during his sophomore year, Parsons has dragged out the recruitment process and plans to announce his final decision this December before enrolling in January.

Here is a look into Parsons’ day from the man himself:

Ohio State knows a thing or two about improper benefits and rolling out the red carpet for its athletes. Accordingly, the weekend began in style for “BlessedMVP.”

Bad news for Penn State fans — Parsons seemed to be enjoying the home of his dog’s namesake, eight hours before kickoff.

Of course, when you meet the Buckeyes’ Heisman winner and get featured on College Game Day (alongside another Ohio State legend, Kirk Herbstreit, who has doubled as a noble Penn State supporter on multiple occasions).

As much as Parsons enjoyed Columbus, it wasn’t all positive vibes for the No. 5 player in the country. It seems he’d like a change at the helm of the Buckeye offense.

Shortly after, he went back on his bold statement. However, you have to give him credit for not deleting.

We all know what happened the last time Parsons discreetly hinted on Twitter about breaking news following a visit.

The weekend ended with glimmer of hope for the Nittany Lions. Franklin’s top target will be in Happy Valley, who lives in Harrisburg, at some point this season, even if he doesn’t expend an official visit on it.
