Nation’s Top Big Man, Penn State Target Dereck Lively Sets Decision Date

On Monday, Sept. 20, one of the top prospects in the class of 2022, 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.
