Five-star running back LeSean McCoy out of Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt was perhaps the biggest recruit at Penn State last weekend to witness the Nittany Lions upset of Ohio State. The 5-foot-11, 204-pounder was impressed by everything at the game.
"The game was the bomb, every time I go up there I get closer and closer and closer to them," he said. "It was great there and the atmosphere in that place is off the hook. That's a big win for Penn State and it was a nice visit. The running backs played pretty good, but I saw that they didn't have any breakaway speed and take off. The defense stepped it up big time though and everyone played together as a team."
The win was not only a big one for Penn State, but it helped the team's chances in landing the No. 7 player in the country.
"I wanted to see if they were going to get a big win and they did," he said. "They were high on my list and they keep getting higher. I'd say they are in my top three, but I can't tell you who else is up there right now."
After the game, McCoy talked with all of the coaches.
"I talked to coach Larry Johnson and Joe Paterno or Papa Joe and they all talked to me and were happy with how it went out there."
