Micah Parsons (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) had quite a presence standing on the sideline prior to Nebraska's game against Wisconsin. After all, he stands at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds.

He's the No. 1 defensive end recruit in the country for a reason.

Twenty-four hours earlier, Parsons was causing headaches for Chambersburg.

Parsons rushed for more than 100 yards and three touchdowns and recorded a sack in a half of play. Parsons' services were not needed in the second half of Harrisburg's 82-3 victory.

Parson was asked about his visit before boarding a plane for Lincoln.

"They're stepping up in football," Parsons told "They had a rough start, but we will just see how they will rebound off that."
