Recruiting Snapshot: Penn State

2018 Class Ranking: #4 nationally, #2 in Big Ten. Penn State has three 5-stars, nine 4-stars, and nine 3-stars signed; they have one additional 4-star verbal commitment.

Cream of the 2018 Crop: The Nittany Lions picked up the #1 weakside end and #4 player overall during the early signing period in the former of Harrisburg (PA) Harrisburg pass rusher Micah Parsons. He was considered a Penn State lock all along, and he’s going to enroll early. The next best recruit is Monmouth Junction (NJ) South Brunswick wideout Justin Shorter, a 6’4″, 213-pounder who’s reminiscent of Allen Robinson with his size and strength. Michigan offered the first two, but for some reason, not the third: running back Ricky Slade from Woodbridge (VA) C.D. Hylton. He’s a 5’9″, 185 lb. all-purpose back and ranked #25 overall. Michigan might not have loved him because he’s on the small-ish side.

Hit the jump for a look at the 2019 class.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2018

Harrisburg (PA) Harrisburg defensive end Micah Parsons decommitted from Penn State. He’s a 5-star, the #1 weakside end, and #3 overall in the 247 Composite. Normally this would seem like good news, except all the Crystal Ball picks coming in are for Ohio State.

ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2019

Richmond (TX) Fort Bend Travis wide receiver Arjei Henderson decommitted from Oklahoma. Michigan offered him earlier this month. He’s a 247 Sports 4-star, the #9 wide receiver, and #37 overall. The 6’1″, 179-pounder has also landed offers from Auburn, LSU, Notre Dame, and Tennessee recently.

Hit the jump for several players who went off the board.
