Pittsburgh Woodland Hills wide receiver Wes Lyons Jr. made an official visit to Ohio State for the Michigan State game weekend.

Of course, Lyons (6-5, 205, 4.65) is the brother of current OSU wide receiver Devon Lyons.

"Yes, I was there this weekend," Lyons said. "I had a great time. My brother was my host. I hung out with him and a few other players I know. It was a great visit. I am very comfortable there. I have been down a few times."

Lyons has made official visits to West Virginia and Boston College previously. He also has offers from Minnesota, OSU and Oklahoma and has also expressed an interest in Louisville and Miami (Fla.).

"I will take all my visits," Lyons said. "I have taken three so far. I have not really decided on what I want to do with the final two visits. I can't really say."

As a junior, Lyons caught 33 passes for 600-plus yards and seven touchdowns. So far this year, Woodland Hills is 7-1. Lyons has 15 catches for over 300 yards with five touchdowns.

"We just don't throw the ball a lot," said Lyons, who benches 255 pounds and has a 36-inch vertical leap. "The team is doing really well though. We are 7-1. It is going pretty good.

"I've got great size at my position. You know there are a lot of little DBs out there. I'm good at getting past them. I've also got great hands and I adjust to the ball real well. Basically, I'm just working on my speed and getting stronger. I need to work on gaining more weight too."

Lyons has a 3.0 GPA.

He revealed that his brother, Devon Lyons, will take a medical redshirt his year. He has been sidelined since early in the season.

"Devon has a high ankle sprain," Wes Lyons said. "He is a lot better now but he and the coaches sat down and talked about it. He is going to take his redshirt."
