Ohio State did very well recruiting the state of Pennsylvania last season, landing a number of top prospects from the Keystone State including Rory Nicol, Kyle Mitchum, and Devon Lyons.
Devon Lyons' father, Wesley Lyons Sr., saw his son play in his first college game last Saturday as the Buckeyes defeated Cincinnati. Wes Sr. will be back in Columbus on Saturday as the Buckeyes play Marshall, and with him will be a number of prospects from Pennsylvania.
Pittsburgh (Pa.) Woodland Hills wide receiver Wesley Lyons Jr. will see the Buckeyes play on Saturday as will Woodland Hills defensive back Darrin Walls . Both are juniors.
A couple of seniors who plan to make the trip to Columbus with the senior Lyons are Pittsburgh (Pa.) Penn Hills running back Ed Collington and Penn Hills offensive guard J.R. Robinson.
"We won our first game," Wesley Lyons Jr. said. "Then we lost to Gateway 47-6. In the two games I caught six passes."
"I'm going up to Ohio State Saturday. I'll probably go to most of their home games. My dad went last Saturday, but I couldn't make it."
"I like Ohio State. I'm looking at a lot of schools. Ohio State, Michigan, Miami, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Penn State, West Virginia, those are some of them."
The 6-foot-6 and 185 pound Lyons rotated at wide receiver during his sophomore season before becoming a full-time starter this year.
