    I jumped onto ESPN3 about 3:20 due to scUM game running late on ABC, and even though there was no live video feed yet, there was live audio, likely a field mic, and the crowd noise/music was vibrant and booming for about 10 minutes until they cut the mic.

    I really want Tyreke, have so for awhile now. No drama, Ohio resident, physically ready, seems mature, a DE who can move inside like Buchholz. Total package.

    So in this fictional story I read....a certain 5 star recruit stepped on the purple carpet during an official visit to a perennial CFP contender. He has been told to go elsewhere. He has heard essentially the same thing at another top ten school close to home. What will he do? Mom and Dad may have finally seen the folly of giving their child prodigy such a long leash?

    There's a fictional story like that? Are you serious? If so, why are you reading it? And why would Parsons have to step on a purple carpet?:oops:

    If I remember correctly, in Greek Mythology purple was a color reserved for gods. Stepping on a purple carpet rolled out by adoring citizens upon his return from the Trojan Wars, may have gotten Agamemnon killed. Clearly something really pissed off his wife Clytemnestra.(who stabbed him to death in his bath that night.)

    Why men shower since then. We're not as dumb as we look.

    Who stepped on the purple carpet only to be rejected twice?

    As an aside, I always thought that Bill Clinton was a perfect Agamemnon and Hillary as guess who (after Monica).
    I think Micah has been dancing all over that carpet, don't you?

    If his pop didn't work for an airline and he couldn't fly so cheap things would look different. But he can and they don't.

    I think his antics have closed some doors to him. His parent and his HS coaches had a responsibility to guide and temper a young prodigy. You know, next year and the year after, there will be others with 5 stars.

    Brian Linder is a writer for Penn Live. He literally writes a story everyday about Parsons. He clearly has a direct pipeline to Parsons. He also replies to most comments, especially critical ones. From today, and when questioned, was no OSU an error/omission, he did not reply.

    "Parsons is a former Nittany Lions' commit

    He has said he is considering Penn State, Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Nebraska, Michigan, Georgia and Miami."

    No OSU?

    Many believe he no longer holds an OSU offer.

    Penn State has extended a preferred walk-on offer to Cleveland (Ohio) Heights defensive back Zaire Webb. He is the teammate of top defensive line target Tyreke Smith, who has the Nittany Lions among his top choices.
    Source: 247 Sean Fitz.

    Webb has visited Penn State several times with Smith, including for the Nittany Lions’ win over Ohio State last fall and for the Lasch Bash in July.

    The 5-foot-10, 175-pound prospect has scholarship offers from Air Force, Army, and Navy. Ohio State has also offered a preferred walk-on slot.

    Webb has a PWO offer from OSU as well. He also has scholarship offers from all three military academies.

    To be fair, the OP edited his post to add that info AFTER artsandletters replied.

    Based upon his scholarship offers, he must be a solid young man academically and athletically. If he doesn't end up serving his country at one of the academies, then hopefully he walks on to Penn State.

    Not PSU related (although PSU did offer), but seldom do you see a 4 star player with a top 5 like this. . .

    Outstanding! Congrats to the fine young man. Sounds like he will be very successful no matter where he goes.

    Interesting, given the report that indicated tOSU had moved into his top spot.

    Jason's a guy we'd really like to have
    in the Nittany Lion Family.

    I willing to bet that the minute Urban heard Parson's tweet about benching JTB, that offer was rescinded. I have a feeling UM didn't take too kindly to it, nor did the OSU players

    I'd love to see Oweh play in blue and white next year and beyond. Because he hasn't played football for as long as others, I think his ceiling is not yet known.

    Except we weren't 2-0 at the time and coming off a big ten championship with Hudson . This is nothing like other situation . Raines just waited too long. That is on him and not Franklin
