Micah Parsons Is Penn State Wrestling And Bo Nickal’s Biggest Fan
Although he’s yet to suit up in a white-belted singlet as promised, Micah Parsons has made his love for Penn State wrestling widely known. The freshman linebacker attends nearly every home dual and frequently fan girls over the team on social media. But on Friday, he took his fandom to a new level.
Parsons posted a series of videos on his Insta Story of him watching two of the Nittany Lions’ biggest wins in their dual against Ohio State. Forced to watch the road dual on the Big Ten Network rather than from his normal perch at Rec Hall across from the student section, Parson loudly voiced support for Roman Bravo-Young during his impressive upset over Luke Pletcher and Bo Nickal during his first-period fall against Kollin Moore.
Take a look (and listen) for yourself to see how much Parsons loves Penn State’s wrestlers. Warning: Some of Parson’s commentary is NSFW, but it’s mostly just him yelling, so make sure you have headphones.
Parsons regularly watches the duals with fellow freshman defensive standouts PJ Mustipher and Jesse Luketa, who both also displayed their excitement Friday night. Ironically, Mustipher, himself a Maryland high school state champion on the mat, attended McDonogh School, the alma mater of Ohio State 184-pounder Myles Martin.
However, Parsons is the most outspoken when it comes to Penn State wrestling (and Nickal, specifically). During last year’s NCAA Finals, Parsons tweeted about the team’s wild path to the team title and his favorite wrestler’s iconic win over Martin. His tweets led to a memorable interaction among Parsons, Nickal, defensive coordinator Brent Pry, and James Franklin about Nickal returning to the football field to play linebacker.
In fact, Parsons has been singing the praises of Nickal for quite some time. He appears to be a lifelong Penn State wrestling fan and wants to know the answer to a question many others have had on their minds for a few years now.

Blazer testified that he was contacted by a Penn State assistant in 2009 who was the father of one of Blazer’s NFL clients. The assistant asked Blazer to pay a player $10,000 so that he would not enter the NFL Draft. Blazer complied, handing a $10,000 check to the father of that player, but the player ended up in the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected No. 11 overall.
