Lewis Talks Penn State

Four-star Pennsylvania WR Eugene Lewis has racked up 12 offers, including one from the Lions. Fight On State finds out exactly what the star has to say about the Nittany Lions and a family member who is helping him through the recruiting process.

Eugene Lewis, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide receiver from Plymouth, Pa., has visited Penn State three times already and has plans to make another visit soon.

Lewis plans on visiting PSU for a Junior Day March 26 and will be attending a practice while he is there. He said he wants to, "see the players they have, and see how they will be looking this year."

"PSU is definitely one of my high-interest teams," said the Wyoming Valley West High product. "I could definitely see myself going there after high school. Plus my dad likes it a lot too."

Family is very important to Lewis. His father, Eugene Lewis Sr., has helped guide him through the recruiting process.

"My father, he has been through the recruiting process for basketball," Lewis said. "So he really knows the whole process and having him on my side has been a blessing."

Lewis Sr. began his collegiate basketball career at Pittsburgh before transferring to South Alabama.

"He has told me when I make my decision to make sure it's the right one," said Lewis of his father. "To make sure I don't have any regrets. He just tells me to stay focused."

Good thing for PSU that Lewis' dad is a fan.

Another good thing for the Lions? Location. Lewis wants to be close to home, but not too close.

"I want my family to come see me play at college," Lewis said. "But I don't want to be too close to home because I want to get the college experience of living by myself. Right now all my options are open."

Just like that, the two hours from Plymouth to Happy Valley got a lot more inviting.
