Penn State Football: Recruiting Class Ranked Best In The Nation Following McLean Commitment

by on April 13, 2014 12:00 PM

There can only be one. And right now, that one is Penn State.

Following the commitment of Adam McLean on Saturday morning, James Franklin and his staff finally hit the top spot with the Nittany Lions' 2015 recruiting class currently ranked the best in the nation by,, and the 247 Network. McLean is a defensive tackle out of Gaithersburg Maryland who had offers from over 30 different schools before finally choosing Penn State.

Franklin and company aren't simply out in front because of early commitments either, the 2015 recruiting class is already 12 players deep with 8 of those commitments coming from prospects rated at the four-star level. Penn State has yet to land a five star commitment this recruiting cycle but according to of the Top 10 recruiting class so far, only three different programs have landed a five-star commitment.

Moving forward the goal for Franklin and his staff will be to keep the class together as an entire season sits between now and Signing Day. So while the verbal commitments keep rolling in Franklin will focus on making sure everyone is on the same page over the next several months. There is no reason to think the class won't stay in one piece, but in the every changing world a recruiting anything is possible.

Penn State hosted 50-100 recruits at the annual Blue White game this weekend including Sterling Jenkins, a four-star offensive tackle from Pittsburgh. Jenkins currently is down to either Penn State or Ohio State for his college destination.
