Only Micah Parsons Until Penn State Football

NCAA Football: Penn State Blue White Game Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

After a whirlwind three-year recruitment, Micah Parsons is finally at Penn State. He’s yet to play in his first game, but his play is already making headlines as James Franklin has praised Parsons for his ability to find the ball.

Parsons started his Penn State career at the MIKE in the spring, but was moved in early April to the WILL, where he is still currently slotted. While Penn State hasn’t released a depth chart yet identifying which side Koa Farmer and Cam Brown are playing on, it’s expected that the two will be on opposite sides, meaning Parsons will be battling one of them for the starting WILL spot.

Although Parsons is new to the position — and, you know, new to college football as a whole too — the 6-foot-3, 237-pound Parsons has the size, athletic ability, and instincts that Penn State hasn’t seen at the linebacker spot in a long time. It remains to be seen how far Parsons has progressed since the Blue-White game, but you can be absolutely positive that Parsons will find playing time in some capacity come September 1.

11 days, folks. 11 days.
