Penn State Recruiting: Nittany Lions Sign Eugene Lewis, To Sign Other Receivers

Penn State signed Eugene Lewis and Trevor Williams on Wednesday, and should add two other wide receivers to its 2012 recruiting class as well

Lewis, a Plymouth native out of Wyoming Valley West High School, headlines the group if not the entire recruiting class. He is ranked a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Scout.com and 247 Sports, while ESPN gave him a scout's grade of 80. According to Rivals, he picked Penn State over many programs, including Illinois, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pittsburgh and Wisconsin. He measures in a 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. Here's a breakdown of his game from his Scout profile.

Lewis has the potential to be a star at the next level. As a sophomore, he showed the skill set that college coaches dream of. He has an outstanding frame and is such a smooth and fluid athlete. He won’t shatter any speed records running a forty-yard dash, but he has a different speed with the ball in his hands. He has exceptional field vision and runs like a scat-back. He is very instinctive and always makes things happen.

Here is one of his highlight videos.

Malik Golden and Jonathan Warner are expected to join Lewis and Trevor Williams (who has already signed) as wide receivers in this class.

Golden, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound native of Hartford, Conn. is a consensus 3-star prospect (Rivals, Scout) and received a scout's grade of 76 from ESPN. He turned down offers from several schools, including Connecticut, Iowa and Akron to sign with the Nittany Lions, according to his Rivals profile. Here's ESPN's breakdown of his game.

Golden is a versatile athlete who can help move the chains in a lot of ways on offense. May get a look at safety or corner as well; he possesses good range, length and breaks well on the ball. Overall he has good size for a college skill prospect

Warner joins the class as a legacy recruit, the son of former Penn State All-American running back Curt Warner. Jonathan measures in at 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds. Rivals has given him a two-star rating. You can check out his highlight video here.

Williams, meanwhile, played both safety and wide receiver at Calvert Hall. Rivals rates the 6-foot-2, 190-pound player a three-star prospect. West Virginia was also among his suitors, along with schools including Bryant, Morgan State and Toledo.
