Willie Taggart is making moves left and right in the recruiting game, and not just for 2017.
On Wednesday night, five-star 2018 defensive end Micah Parsons announced on Twitter he’d received an offer from the Oregon Ducks:
Those who don't me I wanted to go to this school since I was 5 now I can I say I just received an scholarship from them #blessed #ducks ✅ pic.twitter.com/0tyPOwSBZB— #blessed⭐️MVP™ (@Micah_parsons23) January 12, 2017
Parsons is a native of Harrison, Pennsylvania, and is committed to Penn State. The 6-3, 235-pound standout is rated the nation’s No. 5 player in the entire 2018 class and will be a huge addition to whichever school he ends up with.
He’s been committed to the Nittany Lions for almost a year despite the fact that he’s only a junior in high school.
Luring Parsons all the way to Eugene could be tough, but if he’s really wanted to go to Oregon since kindergarten Taggart just might have a foot in the door.
