Penn State, Pitt target, linebacker Shane Lee, talks recruiting
Shane Lee turned in an impressive performance at The Opening’s Washington, DC Regional.
Shane Lee doesn’t skip leg day.
That much was obvious as the St. John’s College linebacker took his reps out on the field at The Opening’s Washington, DC Regional Sunday.
That wasn’t all that stood out about the muscle-bound, five-star sophomore linebacker, though.
Lee’s list of offers is long, and it includes some big names.
Ohio State is there.
So is Michigan, LSU and defending, national champion Clemson.
But, Sunday, Lee said Pitt and Penn State, both of whom have also offered, are in solid standing with him.
His Penn State offer came after last year’s Ohio State win.
“Coach (Brent) Pry offered me,” Lee said. “He just said he likes the way I can play.”
But, Lee made it clear, where he ends up want be decided, solely, by football.
When asked how Penn State’s impending recruiting haul, coupled with it’s run to the Rose Bowl last season, might be impacting his thinking process, Lee was quick to answer.
“Honestly, not too much,” he said. “That doesn’t mean as much to me as the people. But it was a great thing for them, and I’m happy for them.”
Lee described himself as “somebody who gets downhill fast, gets to the point of attack, quick and hard.”
And, he said, he plans to keep perfecting his craft as he evaluates his options during the next two seasons.
“I’m just going to train my butt off,” he said. “I’m going to be working on every aspect of my game.”
