"To see that many fans in the stands were incredible," Forsythe said. "Everyone was so friendly there."

Forsythe and his father made the trip to Columbia and were both impressed with what they saw.

"It was a great trip," Mr. Forsythe said. "It's a beautiful area."

Forsythe got a chance to tour the Tiger Athletic facilities and was very impressed with what they saw.

Forsythe, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound athlete who runs a 5.1 forty, is very well aware of the Tiger's success the last few seasons.

"I know they completely dominated folks in the Big 12 last year," Forsythe said. "I know they have won back to back 10 win seasons."
