East Lake DE Bobby Lyons enjoyed his official visit to Army over the weekend, but said today he’s not quite ready to pull the trigger and likely won’t sign a letter-of-intent with anyone until next week.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound standout also is considering Marist.

“I have not made a decision,” Lyons said. “I’ve got a lot of stuff to take in.”

Both schools are willing to wait for Lyons, he said.

“Right now, I’m putting together positive and negative lists for both,” he said.

Army not only is one of the country's top academic institutions, but the Black Knights are a Division I-A program that played Air Force, Duke, Iowa State, Rutgers and Vanderbilt in 2009. Marist is a solid Division I-AA program (7-4 last season) and is considered an excellent school.

At Army, Lyons would have to serve five years in the military after graduating.

“On most visits, you learn about football and education,” Lyons said. “At Army, it was military, football and education.”
