Ja'Juan Seider continues his dominance on the recruiting trail, securing yet another commitment from a four-star Florida running back. Clearwater native Keyvone Lee has committed to Penn State.

Lee previously committed to the Florida Gators back in March of 2018. He was a regular visitor to Gainesville, but as the bigger offers started to roll in, he apparently felt some pressure to open things back up, ultimately decommitting in February. The Nittany Lions offered Lee in April and that was followed quickly by an official visit to Happy Valley.

The Lee File

  • Class: 2020
  • Size: 6'0/223 lbs.
  • Pos: RB
  • School: Superior Collegiate Academy (Clearwater, FL)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★ (.9189)
  • Composite Rank: No. 216 overall (No. 17 RB)

Florida State was also in hot pursuit of the in-state talent. After Lee's trip to State College, which was his one and only official visit, he was a regular in Tallahassee. Lee ended up at Florida State three times in that time frame. He also returned to Gainesville one final time last month. Penn State's ability to overcome all of those visits after a single visit is wildly impressive.

Lee is commit No. 23 in Penn State's 2020 class, keeping the Lions' class at No. 14 in the nation. He is also the second running back in the class, joining fellow four-star, and Floridian, Caziah Holmes.

Lee is the perfect big-bodied back to compliment all the other backs that are and will be in Penn State's backfield. At 220 pounds already, he could easily come into college ready to play.
