The future of Penn State football will start to take shape on Wednesday morning as verbally committed players begin to send in their Letter of Intent, binding them to the Nittany Lions and the 2016 recruiting class.

For the most part James Franklin and his staff have once again put together one of the better hauls across the country, Ranked No. 13 in the nation by the 247 Network, it's another important piece to the rebuilding puzzle.

Generally speaking, Penn State's signing day should come with few surprises and little drama, but as is so often the case in the world of recruiting, it ain't over till it's over.
