Lynch, Dukes, Hull All Recommit To Penn State

Friday was a big day for Penn State in terms of re-commitments as running backs Curtis Dukes (redshirt junior) and Akeel Lynch (freshman) and redshirt sophomore linebacker Mike Hull once again pledged their allegiance to the Nittany Lion program. Dukes and Lynch staying was essential to this year's team with the departure of starting running back Silas Redd to USC on Tuesday.

Dukes, who has been in trouble in the classroom in the past, had been cleared to participate in fall practice starting Monday when sanctions were announced. He said that he would only be interested in transferring to Syracuse, but the call never came from the Orange, paving the way for Dukes to remain in Happy Valley.

Lynch has yet to take a snap for Penn State, but had many teams looking at him after the NCAA's punishment last week. It seemed that Iowas made the biggest push for the young tailback, but knowing what the Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God (AIRBHG for short) could do to him if he decided to make his way to Iowa City, he decided to honor his commitment and suit up for Penn State come September 1st.

Hull chose Penn State over Pitt during his original recruitment and did the same again, spurning the Panthers to stick with the Nittany Lion program he committed to in 2010. He has 18 career tackles and is expected to back up Gerald Hodges this year at outside linebacker.

The last question mark facing Penn State before practice starts on Monday is the status of Justin Brown. He has been flirting with Oklahoma over the past few days according to sources. The senior must transfer by the end of the weekend if he wants to play football this year. Check back to BSD for news when his decision is made.
