Akeel Lynch, Mike Hull, And Curtis Dukes Will Stay At Penn State

Three key contributors reaffirmed their commitment to Penn State's football program on Friday night in a nice boost for coach Bill O'Brien. Touted freshman Akeel Lynch figures to play a role in the PSU backfield with Silas Redd now at USC. Lynch was considering a potential switch within the conference to Kirk Ferentz and the Iowa Hawkeyes, but he sent out a tweet saying he'll be donning a PSU uniform this fall. Via @ALynch_22:

Along with Lynch, senior Curtis Dukes is expected to get time in the backfield to make up for Redd's departure. Dukes was considering a transfer to Syracuse but he also confirmed to OrangeFizz.net that he will be staying in Happy Valley. Lastly, outside linebacker Mike Hull also decided against a transfer to Pitt in favor of staying on board with the Nittany Lions.
