Defensive tackle Wendy Laurent out of Princeton (N.J.) Hun School took an official visit to Penn State over the weekend. The 6-foot-4, 285-pounder had a good trip and went in detail on his plans from here.
"I enjoyed it, I enjoyed the trip," he said. "I got to go around the facilities and hang out with a couple of the players and the new staff. I was just chilling with them.
"We did a bunch of academic tours and had a nice dinner in the boxes of the stadium. It was really nice."

Laurent was hosted on the visit by friend, Anthony Alosi.
"I knew him when he played in high school," he said. "We're good friends and he was a great host.
"It wasn't that big of a deal, I still had a great time at the school whether or not he was my host. I just got a good picture of the school."
Of course, Laurent spent a significant amount of time with the coaches.
"Oh yeah, I got a lot of time with them," he said. "I was around the coaching staff the whole weekend. They talked about how they look forward to moving on with the program.
"Coach O'Brien wasn't there, but we got to speak to him on the big screen and he was really excited about the program and all that."
Laurent confirmed no decision has been made yet, and is debating his next move.
"I've just got to talk things over with my coach and family more to see where exactly I'll go," he said. "I talked to Connecticut's coaches and they are trying to get me up next weekend, but I'm not sure or positive about it.
"I've been talking to Connecticut, Boston College and Rutgers some, Penn State and Connecticut are the only two with offers. There is no timeframe on a decision.
"I'm still kind of open to everything, but Penn State is one of my favorites, it's a dream school for me since I was young."
