Louis-Jean reflects on trip to Penn State

Four-star Massachusetts cornerback Albert Louis-Jean remains committed to Miami but has been on the road quite a bit in recent weeks.

Over Halloween weekend Louis-Jean took an official visit to Boston College, and this past weekend he was at Penn State.

"I went there for the Northwestern game just for an unofficial visit because I had a game the night before," Louis-Jean recalled.

"It was a good experience and a great game. I got to meet Joe Paterno and see his 400th win. It's a great place and a very historic place. We just drove up and back. I had been there before so I knew what it's like.

"I talked to coach Bill Kenney, coach Mike McQueary and coach Paterno. They were just telling me to give them a chance. Just to give them a look. I'm committed to Miami but they just wanted me to give them a chance and get up there for an official visit."

Having taken a recent visit to Penn State will he be seriously considering the school down the road?

"I'm not even sure yet," he said. "We're still in our season now. We're coming to the end of our regular season and the playoffs will be here soon. I'm just focused on that and then I'll worry about recruiting."

Louis-Jean has an official visit to Miami scheduled for December 10. He said he has been speaking to the Miami coaches on a weekly basis and he maintains that he is solidly committed to the Hurricanes. He is not sure if the Miami coaches were aware that he visited Penn State over the weekend.

Boston College is another school that Louis-Jean visited recently, only that was an official visit, unlike the trip he took to Penn State.

"I was there on an official for the Notre Dame game," he said. "I've been to BC a lot because it's right there. I've camped there, been to campus a few times, to basketball games and all that. I love the experience of going to BC. It was a good game and I had a lot of fun. I talked to coach Sean Devine. It was a good trip."

Brockton has two regular season games remaining -- one this Saturday and one on Thanksgiving Day. After that the playoffs begin. Brockton is 8-1 on the season and ranked No. 2 in the state.

On the season Louis-Jean has 22 receptions for 480 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively he has recorded 35 tackles and three interceptions.
