It's been a while since someone's committed to play football for Syracuse University in the year 2012. Virginia linebacker Darius Parsons remedied that situation today when he told VirginiaPreps.com that he's heading north next year.
While Syracuse was the first, and only, school to offer, Parsons apparently received interest from Virginia Tech, Virginia, Penn State, Michigan State, Tennessee, Boston College and Rutgers.
As a junior, Parson had 121 tackles, three sacks and one interception while also handling running back duties for the Woodbridge Vikings.
According to his Twitterfeed, football is his life, is what he does and what he was born to do...so that works out great.
