Penn State In The Top Five for 2023 DE Jameial Lyons

Jameial Lyons

Friday was an encouraging day for Penn State on the recruiting front.

Although coach James Franklin didn’t get any new commitments and, thus, didn’t get a chance to flash the Twitter “signal” that’s become well-known and loved by Penn State fans, the Nittany Lions are in the running for two four-star recruits from the class of 2023.

Early Friday after noon, four-star running back Treyaun Webb announced his top five schools that he’s considering, and Penn State was one of them.

Hours later, Jameial Lyons, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound defensive end from Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, announced his top five, and again, Penn State made the cut, along with Pitt, Illinois, West Virginia and Cincinnati. Lyons is a three-star recruit according to 247Sports’s composite rankings and a four-star according to its own site rankings.

Lyons was offered by Penn State in late July and has visited campus three times since then, most recently on “Junior Day” Jan. 29.


Thus far, Penn State has eight commitments from the class of 2023. Should Lyons commit, he’d be the second edge rusher, joining Neeo Avery, who committed New Year’s Eve.
