While the rounds are being made on the boards regarding possible character concerns regarding many prospects, seldom do we hear both sides of an issue, as this has been a hot button topic recently, I would like everyone to be able to see both sides and share their thoughts. Below is a synopsis of the allegations that were investigated which also has a telling comment regarding Mr. Humphries “continued revisions”.
Here’s a character reference from La’Var Arrington that I think is quite poignant.
Parsons is no stranger to unasked for controversy. In a 2016 incident, Parsons was suspended from his high school and consequently transferred. His crime? According to this article, he responded less than favorably (but quite mild-mannered imo) to a Blatantly racist Instagram post from fellow classmates. Following this, he was in the cafeteria where he called out to a teammate on the other side of the room. The principal in attendance accused Parsons of “trying to start a riot.”. As a result of these actions, Parsons was handed a three day suspension.
And then there’s a minor flare of his speaking his opinion on the starting qb position at Ohio State while being heavily recruited by them.
Parsons has, it seems, been extremely heavily scrutinized since at least 2016 as a five star recruit. I think it’s important to consider all sides in any matter, and to understand that despite what we see and hear, 99.999% of the iceberg will never be known to us.
