Five-star defensive end Nolan Smith is the No. 1 player in the class of 2019. Back in January, he committed to Georgia football, but he’s been using his official visits to see some other places.
Smith was in Tennessee in mid-November, and Alabama for the Iron Bowl.
Penn State didn’t have a game this weekend, as Ohio State battled Northwestern for the Big Ten title. However, they did have the chance to show Smith what life in Happy Valley is like.
Based on his Twitter reaction, it went quite well.
Noah Smith took to Twitter to say that his Penn State football official visit was the “best weekend of his life.”
That is strong praise from one of the most highly-sought after players in the entire country.

As of now, Georgia is still expected to be the landing spot for Smith. 56-percent of 247 crystal ball voters have him sticking with his pledge to the Dawgs.
Alabama current holds 22-percent of votes, followed by Clemson (11-percent), and 11-percent of voters are undecided.
Penn State may still be on the outside looking it, but it looks like James Franklin’s staff did as good a job as possible in selling the program to Smith over the weekend.
