Five-Star defensive end Micah Parsons could make one of his five official visits with the Miami football program according to the website Miami Diehards. Parsons de-committed from Penn State in April.

It seemingly going to take some work for the Miami Football staff to flip Parsons to the Hurricanes. Miami is currently on the list of a final nine for Parsons. They are listed as cool according to 247Sports.Com.

Nebraska, Penn State, Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State are all listed as Warm on Parsons’ list of schools. Players are only allowed five officials visits. Parsons is the fifth-ranked player nationally on the 247Sports Composite list and second-best defensive player.

Patrick Surtain Junior from American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale is the only defensive player ranked ahead of Parsons. Surtain is listed as a 90 percent certainty to go to LSU according to 247.

Parsons’ father Terrence told 247 that Micah plans to take visits to Ohio State, Nebraska and USC. Although Parsons de-committed from Penn State they are still in the mix according to Terrence.

"“Penn State is up in the air…They are still in the mix, but he has been there so many times he might not use an official visit there. It’s a coin toss after that (for the other two official visits) between Georgia and all three Florida schools, Miami, Florida and Florida State.”"

That Miami is still in the mix for an official visit has to be encouraging. If the Hurricanes can somehow get a commitment from Parsons that will cement them as a serious contender for the top spot in the composite recruiting rankings.

  • Parsons apparently has a very good relationship with Miami Defensive Line Coach Craig Kuligowski. Miami commit Brian Hightower was also working on getting Parsons to come to Miami during the Nike showcase camp The Opening this summer.

    Parsons could get a chance to play at Miami right away in fall 2018. Backup defensive tackle Anthony Moten will graduate after this season. Starters Kendrick Norton and R.J. McIntosh could also head to the NFL a year early after the 2017 season.

    Micah spoke to Penn Live last month about where he stands with his recruitment. One of the things he said is that he would try and visit both the Hurricanes and Florida this summer.

    "The Penn Live article said Kuligowksi’s pitch to Parsons is for him to “Be the [Miami] next first-round draft pick.”"

    About how he envisions himself in college Parsons told Penn Live:

    "“Definitely how they can use me. I’m definitely a man that has a lot of versatility, so I want to be used on both sides of the ball, drawing stuff up. Talk is cheap, but action is a lot of words right there, definitely. That’s why I’ve been looking at a lot of schools.”"

    Miami seems to be a distant choice for Parsons. His 247Sports profile has Ohio State as the 70 percent favorite with Penn State at 30 to land his services. Getting Parsons would be a huge commit for a generational recruiting class.
