Yetur Matos talks about his visit to Penn State with other commits.

Four-star defensive end Yetur Matos was one of several Penn State commits to visit Happy Valley this past weekend.


Despite already having taken his official visit back in October of last year, Penn State commit Yetur Matos made it a point to make another unofficial visit in order to be with his fellow commits. http://www.scout.com/college/penn-state/story/1745379-penn-state-countdo...

"This weekend was not my official visit, but it was very different from the other times I visited," said Matos. "It was different due to all of the dining, talking and hanging out with other commits and their families."

Matos had a large contingent of his family travel with him at University Park.

"My parents and my younger brother and sister all came with me and enjoyed the trip to Penn State,” he said.

Matos has received visits from several Penn State coaches in the past couple of months and was able to get more face-to-face time with them this past weekend.

"Most of the time, all of the recruits were with coaches (James) Franklin, (Brent) Pry and (Sean) Spencer.} he said.

Matos has been part of Penn State's 2017 class since April of last year and has believed in the program since day one.  He added that he was not surprised by Penn State's success on the field during the 2016 season.

"There was no part of the season that caught me by surprise,” he said. "I completely believed in the Penn State program every time they took the field. During the visit (last weekend), we took a lot of pictures and commitment videos.  There was also a lot of team-bonding activities. I never felt any cons in the recruiting process and the biggest pro is getting to be a part of something as special as the Penn State program."

Here's a short clip of Matos having fun in Beaver Stadium with his fellow Penn State commits this past weekend.
