Long a top target for the 2019 class, Seth Lundy led Roman Catholic to a Catholic League and eventual PIAA State Championship this past March. In the PIAA championship game, Lundy posted a gaudy stat line of 28 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks. In August, Lundy trimmed his list of schools down to ten (of which PSU of course, made the cut) and last weekend, he made his official visit to Happy Valley for the White Out which apparently went very well, as the 247 Crystal Ball predictions began trending towards the Nittany Lions.
Sure enough, those predictions that were trending towards PSU were confirmed by Lundy as he verbally committed to play for Pat Chambers’ crew at a press conference at his school (see video, above).
It started with Shep Garner and continued with Nazeer Bostick, Lamar Stevens, and Tony Carr. Now, Seth becomes the latest out of Philly’s Roman Catholic high school to commit to suiting up for the Nittany Lions, further establishing the Philly pipeline that Pat Chambers and his staff have slowly, but surely built into a reliable one. He is by far, the biggest impact recruit in a 2019 class that while not short on potential, was lacking a true stud recruit that would excite the masses. While not the greatest three-point shooter, he certainly has the ability to stroke it from mid-range and more importantly, possesses the athleticism to drive to the hoop and be a thorn in opposing players’ sides defensively.
Welcome to Penn State, Seth!
