Recruit Eugene Lewis Sticking To His Penn State Commitment

WNEP.com reports that Eugene Lewis, a top-rated wide receiver recruit from Wilkes-Barre, will honor his commitment to play ball for the Nittany Lions next year, according to his father, Reverend Eugene Lewis, Sr.:

"I definitely don`t think he`s struggling because 'Gene is the type of person, he`s committed to you, he`s committed to you and his relationship," said Lewis. "His character is just like that, he loves Penn State, he loves the campus, he loves everything about it."

On Monday morning, the NCAA announced the sanctions to be put on Penn State as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. The university was hit with a $60 million dollar fine, loss of scholarships, bowl bans for the next four seasons and vacating of 112 wins dating back to 1998. Recruits and current players are now allowed to leave Penn State without penalty, so it's significant that a high-profile recruit like Lewis is indicating he's willing to stay.
