Names Top Six

I received a tip from a close friend suggesting to me there was news to report on Devon Lyons. Also judging his talents, I felt it was more than worth my time in moving out east to catch the update. Devon named a top six, and three other schools still receiving consideration.

One of the top safety prospects in the entire nation, Devon Lyons is being sought from coast to coast. For the time being, though, he is mainly sticking to his east coast roots.

"Right now, my top six schools are Pitt, Penn State, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Miami(FL), and Ohio State," said Devon. "I'm also giving some slight consideration to schools like Iowa, West Virginia, and Michigan. Miami(FL) and Michigan are the only two schools off that list that have yet to offer."

With cousin Ryan Mundy having just arrived on the Wolverine campus, and close friend/former teammate Steve Breaston set to return punts at Michigan, any reason the Wolverines are not higher on his list?

"I want to face those guys in college," added Lyons laughingly.

One Big Ten school recently made their mark on Lyons, though.

"I'm close to Penn State, but I never really knew much about the program. The visit there was a lot better than I expected, and it went very well."

Lyons has visited all of his top six schools, except for Miami(FL). Has he set-up any official visits to this point?

"I have not yet, but I will once the calls begin. First, I just plan on hearing from the coaches to see how everything is going."
