Penn State Lions Try for Tate Forcier

Paul SalmanSenior Analyst IAugust 29, 2008

San Diego stand out high school QB has made his plans final on his visit to Happy Valley. Forcier was said to be changing his official visit to September 6th for the Oregon State game, however that has not worked out and Forcier will be coming to Penn State on September 27th for the night game against Illinois.

I think this is great for Penn State and their chances to land this kid. There should be a full stadium "White Out" for the game, and the crowd should be in full effect given the 8pm kick off. (See Notre Dame Game 2007 below)

In addition, Forcier's official visit to Michigan will be this weekend for the game against Utah. Many think Utah can pull off this upset as App. State did last year. Week One should be tough for Michigan to come together as an offense and hopefully Utah can take advantage of this.
Hopefully the former "Big House" will become the "Quiet House" and Forcier can then see what a real crowd is like when he comes to the new "Biggest House" in Happy Valley.
