2013 National Signing Day: Penn State

Because of the NCAA sanctions because of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, Bill O’Brien and the Nittany Lions assembled the smallest class in the league (17). But it’s a strong class that is anchored by a total of six linemen on both sides of the ball. O’Brien hung on to early commitments from Christian Hackenberg (the No. 2 QB in the nation) and TE Adam Breneman (the No. 2 tight end in the nation).

OLB Zayd Issah and DE Garrett Sickels also come with fat scrapbooks. Keep an eye on DE Curtis Cothran, who could be a real sleeper. The departure of defensive coordinator Ted Roof, who is well-connected in the south, didn’t have an impact that some may have anticipated. This class will be bolstered by at least 20 walk-ons—or, as O’Brien likes to call them, “run-ons.” Whatever.
