Midlothian (Va.) Clover Hill 2013 linebacker Holland Fisher made an unofficial visit this past weekend. In addition, the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder landed his sixth scholarship in recent days too.
"I went to the Penn State game," he said. "It was a nice atmosphere, a nice stadium and the biggest stadium I've been to. Everything was good up there.
"That was my first game I've been to. They did a good job on defense, but the offense needs to get going more. It was kind of a long ride but worth it."

Did anything surprise Fisher about the trip?
"I liked it a lot," he said. "I've been to Virginia Tech and Tennessee and their stadiums are big, but none are as big as Penn State, they had a crazy crowd."
Penn State has yet to offer Fisher, but is looking at him as a safety.
"They haven't offered yet," he said. "I never met a coach at all really. They just sent me a game invite in the mail and I talked to a couple coaches there, I introduced myself just said hi."
Fisher believes more trips are coming.
"I haven't been anywhere else, but most likely this weekend I'm going to Maryland," he said. "I'll see whatever games I can, most likely I'll go to a Virginia Tech game, Virginia game and maybe South Carolina. I don't know when though."
Meanwhile, Fisher landed an offer in the past week from North Carolina.
"They let my head coach know and he let me know in practice the other day," he said. "It was surprising. I never met the coaches before or talked to them.
"I know a little bit about them, but my dad went there awhile ago. I don't know much about them though."
On the season, Fisher and Clover Hill opened the season on Friday with a win over Prince George.
"We did well," he said. "I had 15 tackles, five for loss and two sacks.
"Everything has kind of slowed down for me. It was kind of a good game for me. For three series in a row I had three tackles that went for three and outs.
"I didn't think I'd be doing this well, but it's because of speed training, film study and everything that is panning out. I'm more comfortable at my position this year and I'm seeing plays develop and getting to it."
Clover Hill faces Matoaca this week.
