The Blue-White game is now just a little more than a week away, and since Penn State has generally netted a commitment or two each Blue-White weekend, it’s as a good time to take a look at the target board to see if any prospects are getting close to pulling the trigger this year.
A couple of housecleaning notes before we get there, though:
As of Tuesday morning, Penn State’s 12-member Class of 2018 is still No. 2 in the country and No. 1 in the Big Ten. It looks to be pretty safe in both spots, but the rankings can move come spring commitment time, which is pretty much now.
Of those 12, six are expected to play offense in college, and six are slated to play defense, so there’s pretty good balance at this point in time. The class size for this cycle still figured to fall somewhere between 22 and 25 signees when all is said and done, with it more likely for that number to come in closer to 22 then 25, but it is fluid.
We’ll start our breakdown on the offense today; be soon to check back to PennLive tomorrow for a look at the defense, and coming later today, we’ll have some team news as Mike Gesicki, Curtis Cothran, Tyler Davis, and Nick Scott are all scheduled to chat with the media on Tuesday.
