Two New Offers for PA Athlete

College coaches were in attendance last Friday night as Upper Saint Clair defeated Bethel Park, 31-0. The two schools represented were impressed enough by the performance of RB/S <b>Sean Lee</b> to subsequently offer the 6'3", 215-pound athlete a scholarship. How involved are the Nittany Lions? Will Sean take an official visit to Penn State?

Position: LB/S
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 215 pounds
40-Yard dash: 4.6 seconds

"Maryland, Penn State and Pitt were at the school on Friday," Sean's father, Craig Lee, said Wednesday evening. "I don't think Maryland watched him play on Friday, but Penn State, Coach Vanderlinden the linebackers coach, was there, and Walt Harris, the head coach from Pitt was there with Paul Rhoades. They (PSU and Pitt) both extended offers a couple of days later. Sean kind of had a big game. He had an interception, 281 yards [rushing] and a lot of tackles.

"He had 5 offers before the season from Indiana and Iowa in the Big 10, Miami of Ohio, West Virginia and Duke. On Sunday of this week, Penn State offered. On Monday, Pitt offered."

Penn State assistant coaches Tom Bradley and Ron Vanderlinden informed Sean on Sunday evening that he had a scholarship offer from PSU. According to Craig Lee, the Nittany Lions are recruiting Sean to play linebacker as are most other schools. Is Penn State a team Sean is interested in?

"Yes, very much so," Sean's father acknowledged.

Sean's older brother, Conor Lee, is currently a freshman walkon kicker at Pittsburgh. The Panthers, however, must contend with four other schools that have Lee's attention right now.

"He loves West Virginia, Iowa, Penn State and Duke. I think those are the front runners right now. Purdue, Northwestern, Maryland, and Wisconsin a little bit, seem to be heating up a lot as well too, so I don't know where that's going to take us."

Sean, who his father describes as "every bit of 6-3, 215", has garnered attention for another sport as well.

"I think he's going to go football, but he's had a lot of basketball interest too, mostly from the Patriot League. Bucknell, Lehigh, Princeton visited last week."

Lee has already begun to set up his official visits.

"He has official visits already set up for Iowa and Duke. I think Iowa is December 10. Duke's the week before. West Virginia he'll visit and Penn State he will definitely visit, but they're not set up yet."
