Lions Back In Picture for Lynch?

The new Penn State coaching staff, led by head coach Bill O'Brien has hit the recruiting trail hard. But have they reached out to St. Francis High RB Akeel Lynch? FightOnState has the answer.

Penn State's new coaching staff has scheduled another big prospect's visit to Happy Valley – running back Akeel Lynch from St. Francis High in Athol Springs, N.Y.

"I am going to visit Penn State next weekend," Lynch said in a text to FightOnState.

Lynch committed to Boston College in July, and has remained a soft-commit to the Eagles – but has received a ton of interest from other programs as of late.

Recently, Lynch has drawn interest from Iowa, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and now Penn State has re-entered the mix.

"I only got to talk to the running back coach briefly," Lynch said. "So I don't know what I really think yet, but I did get good vibes." He added, "I always liked Penn State, it was just a long process for them to get a coach."

Good vibes that he will look to explore as he visits State College for the second time since October when the Lions took on Iowa.
