Penn State Offers 2016 Wing Lamar Stevens

With a top-10 2015 recruiting class currently in hand, Pat Chambers has set his sights on some talented juniors.

Pennsylvania product Lamar Stevens reportedly received an offer from Penn State this past weekend. The Philadelphia native plays at the Haverford School (Pa.) and has caught the attention of several in-state schools, with offers from Temple, La Salle and Villanova already in hand.

Stevens could be the wing of the future for Chambers and the Lions, his 6-6 body and chiseled frame looking more than ready to thrive at higher levels. Stevens is excellent in transition, due to exceptional athleticism and upper-body strength. Stevens has already proven his ability to score, averaging 15.2 points per game as a sophomore at Haverford last season, but he might be even better on defense, using his long arms and superb timing to block shots and frustrate his opponent.

The high school junior is currently Chambers' highest rated (No. 9 SF, No. 50 National) Class of 2016 wing target and could usher in a golden era for Nittany Lions' basketball if he chooses to join forces with uber-talented Class of 2015ers Josh Reaves , Mike Watkins and Deividas Zemgulis.

For Stevens, jump to the 1:10 mark.
