Bob Lichtenfels: Can you give us a brief rundown of what took place on your visit?
LeSean McCoy: We got to meet the players and coaches, and we took a tour of the campus. It was nicer then I thought. I really liked it.
BL: So your expectations werent real high prior to the visit?
LM: Well, theyve lost a lot over the last few years, but you dont get that vide, everyone is pretty positive.
BL: What was it like to meet Joe Paterno?
LM: Coach Paterno was cool. He was telling jokes and everything, definitely not what I had expected.
LM: Yeah, I was up in their room, they were telling me how crazy it is that they have yet to play a game but people are always coming up to them asking for autographs and stuff.
BL: Knowing Justin, he was doing some recruiting. What did he say?
LM: He just told me I could come join them here and be a part of something special.
BL: Did the unofficial visit place Penn State in your top five?
LM: I dont really have a top five just yet, but Penn State and Pittsburgh are two schools Im really thinking about. Coach [Dave] Wannstedt will be coming into school this month, so Ill see what kind of feel I get.
BL: How many offers are you up to right now?
LM: I think around 40, or a little over 40.
BL: Who were the most recent offers that youve received?
