This weekend is going to be huge for Penn State's recruiting efforts, with a few blue-chip prospects heading to Happy Valley.

Chief among them is Micah Parsons, a five-star Pennsylvania product and former PSU commit.

Penn State may still be the favorite to land the talented defensive end, who heads to Georgia this month as well before taking advantage of the early signing day on December 20.

The Nittany Lions and Bulldogs are not alone, however. Ahead of this weekend's trip, Parsons clarified the six schools that he is still involved with: Alabama, Georgia, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Penn State.

A pair of uncommitted four-star players, offensive tackle Rasheed Walker and defensive lineman Tyreke Smith, are also making their visits this weekend, as is a host of current Penn State pledges.

Penn State's class currently ranks No. 5 in the country, and second in the Big Ten.
