Lyons Discusses OSU Visit

Pennsylvania standout enjoys his OSU official visit, but indicates he may take a fifth visit elsewhere before he decides. Here's what he had to say about his OSU trip.

Pittsburgh Woodland Hills wide receiver/defensive back Devon Lyons returned from his official visit to Ohio State earlier today.

"Roy Hall was my host," Lyons said. "It was just a nice place. I really enjoyed the time I spent with the coaches, especially Coach Tressel and (wide receivers coach Joe) Daniels. They were with me most of the time.

"It was just a nice time with some real nice people. I was comfortable in that environment. It was a nice trip."

Lyons (6-2 1/2, 204, 4.47) was a fine two-way player for Woodland Hills this season. Offensively, he had 23 catches and scored 14 touchdowns. Defensively, he had 52 tackles and four interceptions after tallying five picks as a junior.

"They are recruiting me as a wide receiver," Lyons said. "That is where I want to play."

Lyons made visits to Notre Dame and Michigan State during the season, then saw Miami (Fla.) last weekend.

"I will probably take one last visit, but I'm not sure where to yet," Lyons said. "Some of the ones I'm looking at include Michigan, Stanford and Pitt. It's up for grabs right now.

"I do not have a leader right now."

Lyons shared more on his OSU experience.

"I had been there a few times," he said. "I really like Coach Tressel a lot. All of the families went to dinner at his house last night while the recruits went out."

Lyons said he will likely wait until January before he decides.
