With National Signing Day fast approaching, McGowan has seen the reality of it all start to sink in.
"It's starting to sink in a little bit," McGowan explained. "Each day it sinks in just a little more and it will be here before I know it."
During his visit McGowan spent time with Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio and offensive line coach Mark Staten.
"I sat down in Coach D's office and we talked about a lot of things," McGowan continued. "I also sat down with Coach Staten and watched some film. They both talked about how they've got something special going at Michigan State and they look forward to me being part of it and helping it continue."
As with all official visits the weekend was full of food.
"I can't remember the name of the restaurant," he said. "But it was great as I ate steak and lobster."
