Akeel Lynch was wearing a Penn State jacket before he even knew what a Nittany Lion was. Now Lynch (Athol Springs, N.Y./Saint Francis) is set to play for Penn State.

A former Boston College commitment, Lynch pledged to Penn State while official visiting over the weekend.

“It’s exciting because you always dream for them to call and to actually go there is pretty exciting,” Lynch said. “It motivates you to keep doing what you’re doing.”
