Penn State football lands commitment from 4-Star WR KeAndre Lambert

Penn State football gains another wide receiver for the 2020 recruiting class in four-star wideout, KeAndre Lambert.

It’s been quite the recruiting cycle for Penn State football’s 2020 class. It started off hot, as they were a Top-15 class as the summertime approached. Then out of nowhere, the Nittany Lions suffered a few losses as a handful of commitments pulled back on their word.

As soon as everybody began to panic though, the Lions bounced back. Penn State’s head coach James Franklin remained confident throughout the entire process. As he knew there were still tons of recruiting events to go down, the head coach figured they would make a comeback.

And after setting the desired goal of wanting to land 30 commitments for the 2020 class, Penn State is well on its way to accomplishing that feat. Before Friday, the 2020 class was sitting pretty with 26 commitments. Now, on Friday, they landed their 27th on the season, and it’s a big one.

KeAndre Lambert commits to Penn State

For a while now, Penn State has had their eyes on Maury High School’s KeAndre Lambert. The six-foot-one-inch, 176-pound prospect hails from Norfolk, Virginia. Ranked as a four-star wide receiver according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings, Lambert is considered to be a top-five player within the state of Virginia.

Just two weeks ago, James Franklin made sure to pay Lambert a visit while the head coach toured around the nation during the Nittany Lions’ bye week to get some recruiting work done. While Lambert was assumed to pick either Penn State or North Carolina, in the end, most recruiting analysts predicted that Lambert was headed to Happy Valley in 2020.

With Lambert’s commitment, Penn State takes a nice jump to No. 12 on the overall recruiting rankings for next year, moving up three spots after falling behind. Lambert now becomes the third-best prospect to commit to Penn State for 2020, sitting just behind the defensive back, Enzo Jennings and outside linebacker, Curtis Jacobs.
