Four-star Phenix City (Ala.) Central EDGE Tomarrion Parker was blown away by Penn State on his official visit there in June. So much so that he decided to shut things down and commit to the Nittany Lions shortly afterward.

But other schools have remained in contact with him, and after a lot of consideration, Parker decommitted from Penn State today.

The No. 120 overall prospect in the On3 Consensus added that he felt he wasn’t 100 percent sure of his commitment at this point, and wants to take more time with his recruiting process after rushing into an early commitment. He chose Penn State over Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and others. Those schools have been communicating with him, looking to get him on campus this fall for official visits.

The Nittany Lions are not completely ruled out, but it looks increasingly likely that he will stay closer to home in the Southeast.

Tomarrion Parker Scouting Summary

“Productive player as a junior for state champion runner-ups in Alabama’s highest classification. The definition of an active player. Totaled 23 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks as a junior. Consistently chases backside and is constantly in pursuit of the football. Polished pass rusher as well that has extremely active hands and understands how to use leverage to his advantage. Registers as a good, but not elite athlete in the combine setting and looks to lack high-end length at the position. One of the highest floors in the class due to being so technically sound and refined as both a run defender and pass rusher.” — Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings
