With Saturday's official visit being his sixth trip to Columbus in the last year, you'd think Pennsylvania five-star defensive end Micah Parsons had seen everything the staff could throw at him. But as ESPN College GameDay co-host Lee Corso says, "Not so fast my friend!"

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Parsons, a former Penn State commit who is considered the top-rated weak-side defensive end and No. 5 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, was brought on stage in the middle of the wildly popular college football pregame show, where he met with co-host Kirk Herbstreit and guest picker Eddie George, both former Buckeyes themselves.

Parsons, who is good friends with Ohio State commits Emory Jones and Jaelen Gill, told Eleven Warriors he's having the time of his life on the visit... and the game is still four hours away.

Will the Buckeyes be able to close tonight? Maybe, but highly unlikely, as Parsons has repeatedly said he'd like to take all five official visits before making a decision in December. He'll make a trip to Nebraska next month, while Alabama, Florida State, Miami and Penn State are all vying for the three other official visits.
