Woodland Hills wide receiver Wes Lyons wrapped up his third official visit today. Lyons capped off a string of three consecutive weekends on the road, by checking out Ohio State. Lyons had taken previous trips to West Virginia and Boston College.
The Pittsburgh, Pa., native is about as familiar with the Ohio State campus as a high school prospect could be, since his brother Devon is a sophomore wide receiver for the Buckeyes.
“It was fun at Ohio State,” Lyons said. “I got to hang out with my brother, he was my host. I already know most of the players there so I was pretty comfortable.”
While Lyons had fun watching the Buckeyes beat Michigan State, that wasn’t the only highlight of his trip.
“Watching the game was fun,” he said. “Saturday night I got to go out to some clubs with my brother that was a good time.”
The 6-foot-5, 205 pound, wide receiver journeyed to Boston College last weekend. Mother Nature tried to put a damper on his trip.
“Jason Lilly was my host up there,” he said. “It was fun, but I picked a bad day it was pouring down rain the whole time. It was cool though.”
The Mountaineers also made a strong impression on Lyons. He was hosted by red shirt freshman linebacker Mortty Ivy who played for gateway in high school. Gateway just happens to be the Wolverines biggest rival.
“My weekend there was great, I had a great time at West Virginia.” He said. “It was the perfect visit. Everything went right, and I got to see everything I needed to see."
After taking three official visits, Lyons is still no closer to naming a favorite then he was prior to the visits.
“My favorites haven’t changed,” he said. “I have been to all those schools before except Boston College so I was pretty familiar with them.”
Lyons told us that four schools are recruiting him very hard right now.
“Minnesota, West Virginia, Ohio State, and Boston College are all recruiting me very hard right now,” he said. “I haven’t heard from Miami that much lately. I plan on taking all five visits.”
Lyons has caught 15 passes for 360 yards and five touchdowns this season.
