Who came with Patrick on the visit?

DeStefano: My mom and dad came with me. My sister came over and joined us for the big dinner.

What was the highlight of the visit?

DeStefano: Really the highlight was just hanging out with a lot of my closer friends like Bradley, Jay and Oliver.

How did the visit rate on a scale of one to ten?

DeStefano: I would give it a 20.

How did your parents enjoy the visit?

DeStefano: They really enjoyed it. Friday was rough because we played in Sumter. We didn’t get to the hotel until about 2 AM. I know they had a great time though.

What did you do Saturday night with your player host?

DeStefano: Reid Webster was my host. He was awesome. He really opened up his houst to just. We really just hung out.

Tell us about the conversations with the coaches?

DeStefano: The coaches are still in honeymoon mood. I told Reid I am going to look back at these days when I am getting my butt chewed out. They told me to come ready to work. I am probably the smallest offensive lineman coming in at 258 pounds. No single aspect of my game is ready for Division 1 football. I have a lot of work to do to get my body ready and work on my technique. I am ready to get started.

Do you hear about any commitments this weekend?

DeStefano: We actually spent a lot of time with Jonathan Bullard. It seemed like he had a really good time. I stayed away from the running backs. They are a different breed.
