Panthers Finally Offer Local Standout

Last weekend Walt Harris made it a point to personally travel to Bethel Park with defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads to see Upper St. Clair standout Sean Lee. On Monday evening the Panthers offered a scholarship, but is it too little, too late?

According to his father Craig Lee, Upper St. Clair (PA) high school linebacker Sean Lee (6-3, 215, 4.6) has set two of his official visits.

"On (12/3) he will visit Duke, and on (12/10) he will visit Iowa," said Craig Lee

Local Universities Pittsburgh and Penn State finally found their way to see the Panther standout run for 277-yards against Bethel Park last weekend. The coaches must have come away impressed because on Sunday afternoon the Nittany Lions offered, and on Monday evening Pittsburgh offered. Sean has an older brother Conor who is a walk-on freshman kicker, will that sway Sean?

"I respect Walt Harris and I'm sure my sons have thought about being college teammates. It will be interesting because he likes several of the schools that have offered."

Iowa- "Kirk Ferentz is from USC, we have known him for years so there is a comfort level with him."

Duke- "I want Sean to see the academic side of things, and Duke is a great academic school."

WVU- "West Virginia has been consistently recruiting him since the beginning and that is important."

Penn State- "Great history and tradition at Penn State. Sean will consider them, but it may be tough with the Pitt/PSU thing between brothers."

Pitt- "Conor is there and he enjoys himself. Its local and we have always followed them."

On Friday night Lee had 18 carries for 83 yards, and scored 4 touchdowns. For the season he is closing in on 900 yards and has scored 16 touchdowns. Lee plays running back and safety for Upper St. Clair, but he is being recruited as an outside linebacker.
