Seth was one of the 110,000-plus in attendance at Beaver Stadium this past weekend as Penn State manhandled Nebraska 40-7.

"I went with my quarterback, my tight-end and another good friend who plays quarterback for West High," Seth said Sunday evening.  "It was awesome, it was incredible.  We got to go on the field, talk to Joe Paterno, see Lynn Swann,  we got our pictures taken with Zack Mills and a couple other players, it was incredible."

His friends obviously enjoyed themselves.

"They had a great time.  I got a couple pictures with Joe Paterno and the guys, so they really enjoyed  that.

"I was standing right next to Lynn Swann, so for me that's just a total inspiration.

"I talked to Coach Paterno for maybe two minutes, but I talked to Coach Carter a lot.  I talked to him when they were warming up on the field and then I talked to him after the game in the locker room.  He was real excited that I came up to see the campus again and to see them beat Nebraska 40-7.  He really wants  me to go there."

Was it what he expected?

"It was more than that.  It was incredible.  I can't even explain how awesome it was.  I've never seen anything like it.  It was a sellout crowd of 110,753.  It was crazy.  I guess it broke the record."

Fogarty is busy planning his official visits.

"I have one to UConn this week and then I'll go to UCLA and Penn State the 2 weeks after that, but I haven't decided which one I'll go to first.  I haven't set those up yet.

"I have the same favorites.  I'm open right now.  I just got back from Penn State, so I'm really excited about them, but I'm going to remain open for about 5 more weeks and then hopefully narrow it down and make a decision after I have been to the schools.

Who are his favorites?

"Penn State, UCLA, UConn, WVU and Georgia."
