Decision near for Devon Lyons

A two-way athlete from Pennsylvania is still in the process of narrowing his list down. Could a decision be coming soon?
Safety / wide receiver Devon Lyons of Pittsburgh (Pa.) Woodland Hills is being heavily recruited by almost everyone.
"That's the problem," laughed Lyons. "At first everybody wants all the attention from the schools, and I still consider myself fortunate, but it's gotten to where there are so many good options it's going to be hard to choose."
While the decision will be hard, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete has managed to choose four schools that stand above the rest.
"It's been tough all along, just trying to put one school above another, but I think I have my final four. Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Miami are the ones I'm most impressed with, academically and with football. I've clicked with coaches at each place."
Perhaps more importantly, Lyons enjoyed visits to all four schools. Does he plan on setting up a fifth?
"It's something I'm definitely interested in," he said. "I'm not sure where I would take it or whether it would be a place nearby or across the country. I'm thinking about that real hard right now, and I should know pretty soon."
As a senior for Woodland Hills, Lyons more than 50 tackles and four interceptions on defense. On offense he caught 14 touchdown passes as Woodland Hills' top receiving threat. Lyons is also an excellent student, with a 3.4 GPA and a 1030 on his SAT.
