Over the weekend, Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes athlete Marcus Davis took his second official visit. The 6-foot-4, 221-pounder caught up with Rivals to give the lowdown on his visit.
"It went well," he said. "I was there Saturday through Monday.
"Basically, I met with the coaches and just chilled out the rest of the time. I had a good time. The purpose of an official visit is to have a good time and I did that."
Davis was hosted on the trip by former Hampton Roads prospect Chima Okoli.
"He's cool," he said. "We talked and joked around. He joked about how they beat us in football when we played Salem. He was like a neighborhood friend.
"He didn't really say anything other than asking me what I was trying to do when I get up there."
The three-star prospect had planned to attend a practice, but due to some complications flying wasn't able to get to State College in time.
Wrapping up the trip, the No. 15 prospect in Virginia met with the coaches, Bill Kenney and Joe Paterno.
"I had dinner and breakfast with the coaches," he said. "Coach Kenney was cool. He just talked to me.
"It was my first time meeting Coach Paterno. He's a great guy. I got a chance to talk to him for awhile. Just the chance to be around him was great. He told me what I already have heard before that nothing is given to me, you earn what you get."
The visit to Penn State was a good one for Davis.
"I had a good time," he said. "I really can't tell you where they sit, it's still early.
"At the moment, I'm in basketball mode. I am planning to take other officials in January. Two will be to Florida and Virginia Tech. I don't have dates on them yet."
