This weekend was a last-minute thing, Odrick said. I asked my coach if there was anything we could do, so I called [Penn State defensive line coach] Coach [Larry] Johnson around Tuesday, and told him that I wanted to come up and he said no problem. It just so happened to be a weekend where a bunch of the other defensive line recruits visited.
During his visit, the four-star prospect said he had the chance to speak with current Penn State commitment Abe Koroma, a defensive tackle, as well as defensive linemen Phillip Taylor and Aaron Maybin. Taylor and Maybin were on unofficial visits.
Ive met them before on other visits, Odrick said. I already knew what they were like, the way they attack. I sat down and talked about the whole recruiting process, about Penn State and other schools. Every time I go there, I say whats up to Derrick [Williams] and A.Q. [Shipley] afterward.
Specifically, Odrick said he knew what he wanted to evaluate during his stay this past weekend.
I was looking a lot at the defense, which is most of the time consistent, Odrick said. They broke down in the end but Im not too concerned with that. I was also looking for the offense to score. I was looking to see if they put up numbers, and they did. I want to see what they can do against a big-time team.
Odrick will have that chance when he returns to Happy Valley for an official visit when Penn State takes on Ohio State Oct. 8. He also has official visits set up with Florida, Virginia, Georgia and Virginia Tech.
