2014 CB Truitt Recaps Saturday at Penn State

St. John's College (Washington, D.C.) class of 2014 cornerback Omar Truitt took in Penn State's win against Navy on Saturday, and he spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about what he called a "perfect" day. He also explained what the staff is saying about an offer.

It was a long 24 hours for St. John's College (Washinton, D.C.) class of 2014 cornerback Omar Truitt, but certainly worth it.

Following a tough, four-point loss Friday night to Calvert Hall, Truitt awoke early Saturday for the three-hour trip to Penn State to watch the Nittany Lions win the first game coach Bill O'Brien's tenure, a 34-7 triumph against Navy.

"It was perfect!" Truitt said in a text to FOXSportsNEXT shortly after departing campus. Later, he went into detail on what went so well, and how the day evolved after he arrived at the stadium.

"We went to the recruiting lounge and they fed us, and the food was delicious," Truitt said. "After that, we went down to the field and we walked out of the tunnel with the players. They were screaming your name, ‘Oh, come to Penn State! Come to Penn State!' It was special. It was crazy. I loved it. It was great."

Throughout the game, Truitt said he was in awe at the reaction Penn State fans had toward their team.

"Their record was 0-2, but still the fan base was amazing," Truitt said. "That really shows a lot, that they stick with their team, and I loved that. I expected that, but being there for the first time (for a game), it was really something."

There were also times Truitt, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback, envisioned what it would be like playing for the Nittany Lions.

"I was thinking about, ‘Oh, man. What if I was on the field as a corner? Or what if I had the ball in my hands and everyone was shouting my name?' " Truitt said. "They were all into it. They started the wave."

When the game ended, Truitt was able to join the Nittany Lions in the locker room and speak with a trio or Maryland players.

"After the game I went into the locker room with the five-star tight end (Adam Breneman) that committed. That's a nice guy," Truitt said. "I talked to Da'Quan Davis, Stephon Morris, Trevor Williams. I played against DaQuan and Trevor at Calvert Hall."

Truitt also spent time with the coaching staff, speaking with secondary coach John Butler and defensive line coach Larry Johnson about the school and the possibility of an offer.

"I talked to coach Butler and coach Johnson before the game, and I talked to coach Butler after the game," Truitt said. "They were breaking down how things are going down. They're still talking about who they're going to offer because they're taking their time with this class. They basically want to make sure everything is right."

Truitt holds offers from Syracuse and Richmond.
