Eugene Lewis Plans To Stay At Penn State Instead Of Transferring

Finally, a good sign for Penn State football. Incoming four-star wide receiver Eugene Lewis plans to take the field for the Nittany Lions despite a free pass from the NCAA to play elsewhere, according to his father:

"He`s doing the best that he can, he`s little discouraged however he understands the commitment he made and he still wants to be at Penn State," said Reverend Eugene Lewis, Sr.

As for the schools showing interest? From the CitizensVoice.com report:

Wyoming Valley West coach Pat Keating said he was fielding calls on the behalf of Lewis from North Carolina State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Connecticut, Marshall, Massachusettes and Oregon.

UMass! UMass is out here looking to take players from Penn State. Did you ever think you'd see the day? You sure didn't.

Except for Virginia Tech and Oregon, none of those schools really offer serious championship potential, so it could be that Lewis remains fully locked in after looking at the list of schools on the phone. It remains to be seen whether Lewis sticks around if more come calling, but his staying with PSU would go a long way to convincing others to also stick around.
