Running Back Akeel Lynch Re-Commits To Penn State

Former Boston College and current Penn State commit Akeel Lynch reaffirmed his commitment to play college football in Happy Valley. Lynch made the announcement late Friday night on Twitter.

Lynch will likely challenge for PT this season as a true freshman given the lack of depth at the position on the Penn State roster. He chooses to remain at Penn State over Iowa, which courted the running back (and also has its own RB depth issues).

The Toronto native and New York State Gatorade Player of the Year originally gave a verbal commitment to Boston College last July, choosing to opt out in January. He chose Penn State over offers from Iowa, Oklahoma and Mississippi.

With Lynch staying in Happy Valley, the list of active players on Penn State's roster who have announced they are leaving remains at eight -- QB Rob Bolden (LSU), S Tim Buckley (N.C. State), TE Kevin Haplea (Florida State), P/K Anthony Fera (Texas), LB Khairi Fortt (Cal), OL Ryan Nowicki (Ilinnois), DT Jamil Pollard (Rutgers) and RB Silas Redd (USC).
