Today, one of the top Penn State football recruiting targets in the 2024 recruiting class announced his top six remaining schools. Among his six finalists are James Franklin’s Nittany Lions, who are still in the running alongside some elite company, all five of which are major SEC programs. Here is what you need to know about the four-star running back, Peyton Lewis, and his finalist list.

Peyton Lewis is a four-star running back target in the 2024 recruiting class, and he has garnered significant attention from several top-ranked programs nationally, including the Nittany Lions. Penn State football recruiting has been actively pursuing Lewis, and he has included them in his top-six finalists, which were announced this morning.
Penn State stands as the only Big Ten program still in contention, alongside other major programs such as Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and South Carolina.
Currently, it appears that the Gamecocks have the lead in his recruitment. According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, South Carolina has the highest likelihood (43.4%) of securing his commitment in the end. However, it’s important to note that official visit season often brings about changes, so the upcoming summer will play a crucial role in Penn State’s chances.
Additionally, it’s worth considering that the 2024 Penn State football recruiting class already features two four-star running backs, Corey Smith and Quinton Martin, which may influence Lewis’s decision. However, this is purely speculative on my part.
Ratings and rankings for four-star running back Peyton Lewis
According to the On3 Industry Rankings, Peyton Lewis is a four-star 2024 running back target and is ranked among the top 175 recruits in the nation. Lewis holds the No. 171 spot overall, ranks No. 11 among running backs in the 2024 class, and is considered the top recruit in Virginia. With a 6-foot-1, 190-pound frame, Lewis possesses the ideal physical attributes for the Penn State football coaching staff to develop, and he showcases all the necessary skills to potentially become a top college running back in the coming years.
