Jared Wangler is still gone. I am still sad. But let's try and heal together, with this news.
Like the tweet says, Brandon Lee is a 4* OLB from Indianapolis, IN, who is the 30th ranked OLB in the country, and the 5th ranked player in Indiana (All according to 247). He's reportedly willing to give Penn State a fair shot in the process. He very recently named a Top 5 of Louisville, Oregon, Virginia Tech, Cal, and Northwestern, but this was before the Penn State offer had been extended.
He currently holds offers from the following schools: Cal, Louisville, Northwestern, Oregon, Virginia Tech, Ball State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan State, Minnesota, Missouri, NC State, Purdue, Rutgers, Wake Forest.
Brandon wants to take all of his official visits before making a decision, so it will be a while still. However, his interest seems quite genuine, which is a great sign considering this is very late to be getting in the running for a top athlete (Especially a linebacker). I was able to speak with Brandon a little bit, and when I asked him if he was going to try and come visit, he expressed that it is certainly a possibility, but he has yet to set up anything official at this time. So let's all hope for some Bill O'Brien magic to get him on campus, so the staff can make an impression. I believe there's a game on October 12th that might be a good one to see...
