Darius Wade had been to Penn State before but he had never attended an actual home game for the Nittany Lions.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Middletown (Del.) quarterback, a Class of 2014 prospect who boasts offers from Delaware and UMass, said his first game at Penn State couldn't have been much better.
For starters, he's heard from both Penn State and Ohio State.

"I feel like it was definitely a good game early on," Wade said. "It was going back and forth. It was close and a good match up. But towards the end Penn State made some mistakes. Ohio State is a good team and they were able to capitalize on them."
While he was there as a Penn State recruit, Wade said both teams impressed him.
"I like both offenses," he said. "I saw Ohio State is looking more for quarterback runs, zone reads and things like that. Penn State is more straight drop back and play action, throwing downfield. I couldn't lean to one school or the other. I was favoring both of them."
Wade got to the game a little bit late but was able to touch base with the Penn State coaches a little bit before the game.
He attended their spring game earlier this year.
"But this was my first time at an actual game," he said. "With 107,000 people just roaring, it was great."
This fall as a junior Wade has completed 75-percent of his passes for 1,600 yards and 21 touchdowns with no interceptions. He has also rushed for 400 yards and four scores.
