Decision Day For 2022 5-Star Center Dereck Lively; Penn State A Finalist

On Saturday, Micah Shrewsberry and Penn State received a commitment from 2022 4-star forward Kebba Njie and are hoping for more good news today.

2022 center Dereck Lively, will be making his long-awaited college decision.

Lively, a 7-foot-1 five-star prospect, will be choosing between Penn State, Duke, Michigan, USC, Kentucky, Florida State, and North Carolina. The No. 2 recruit in his class, Lively is one of the most athletic, versatile, and dominant big men that the high school game has seen in years.

While many believe that this recruiting battle will likely be won by Kentucky or Duke, Penn State did make his top seven list and has some factors on its side. Lively is from right down the street, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, and his mother works for Penn State.

Penn State currently has received four commitments for the Class of 2022: 4-star forward Kebba Njie (6’8″, 205), 3-star guard Jameel Brown (6’4″, 190), 3-star small forward Evan Mahaffey (6’5″, 175) and 2022 3-star point guard Kanye Clary (5’11”, 180).
