"I had heard about it," Tyson said of his new offer. "But I didn't expect it this early."
The Lions became the third on Tyson's offer list, along with Virginia and North Carolina Central.
The Norfolk, Va., standout DB is familiar with PSU, and is excited about his new offer.
"Yes, I am liking Penn State," Tyson said. "I came last year to camp too."
After just one day of camp, the coaching staff pulled Tyson aside to break the news to him.
"Coach Buggs offered me," Tyson said. "He took me on a little visit around campus, the stadium, and the facilities."
But the big question is, how interested is he Penn State?
"Somewhat," Tyson replied briefly.
Tyson plans on making several more visits before he begins to evaluate his options.
Tyson is in Happy Valley through Wednesday to finish up the remainder of Football Camp I.
