The atmosphere of the game? Check
The pre-game feel? Yup
The post-game excitement? You bet.
"The the atmosphere was ridiculous," the Cheshire (Conn.) Academy standout said. "It's definitely a moment to remember."
Sebastian remains committed to Boston College, but he is being recruited hard by the Nittany Lions and Michigan. He could officially visit Michigan on Dec. 9, but he said he is yet to set official visits to Boston College or Penn State.
He spoke with the Nittany Lions' coaching staff about an official visit, and it is clear they want one of the last shots with him.
"They were basically telling me stay patient," Sebastian said, "and we want you to take an official visit in January."
Sebastian is being recruited by schools as a receiver and cornerback, and he has the skill set to play both.
However, cornerback is the first option for many of the schools, and the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder spent time watching Penn State's secondary in the win against Michigan State, which put the Nittany Lions in next week's Big Ten title game against Wisconsin.
"The defensive backs were very physical in the run game," Sebastian said. "They were forcing coverage sacks, which was very impressive in showing that they were doing their jobs."
Recruits normally rave about Penn State's fan base, but it was even more raucous because of the meaning of the game, and that was not lost on Sebastian.
"The crowd was loud every second of the game," he said. "The coaches were fired up because if they beat Michigan State, and if Ohio State (won), then they will be in the Big Ten championship. So it definitely was emotional."
So what was Sebastian's big takeaway from the day?
"The Penn State fan base," he said with a chuckle. "As soon as I arrived on campus, fans knew who I was, and what position I play, and everything."
