2023 Four-Star Wide Receiver Taeshaun Lyons Has Penn State in His Top Eight

Taeshaun Lyons, a Class of 2023 four-star wide receiver out of Tennyson High School in Heyward, California, has named his top eight schools, and Penn State is on his list.

Penn State is in the mix with Arizona State, Miami, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound Lyons is the No. 19 player in California, the No. 35 wide receiver, and the No. 283 player nationally.

Scouts like that that Lyons is a player with speed and explosiveness running an 11.03 100-meter dash and 22.37 200-meter dash running track. He also recorded a 43-1 in the triple jump, and 22.11.25 in the long jump. He has shown playmaking ability on film but has a slender build and needs to add 10-15 pounds. Lyons heading into his senior season has averaged 28.6 yards per catch and 18 career receiving touchdowns.

Lyons spoke to Brandon Huffman, National Recruiting Director for 247Sports.com when he talked about his top eight schools and spoke about Penn State being on his radar since he was younger.

“Penn State is another school that has always stood out to me since I was a kid. I’ve always known about Penn State and know that is a great school for both football and athletics.”

Penn State would like to add Lyons to go along with Ejani Shakir and Carmelo Hayes to their receiver room in their 2023 recruiting class.
