Penn State's 2013 recruiting class is headlined by blue-chip quarterback recruit Christian Hackenberg. The 6'4" 210-pound passer from Fork Union Military Academy (Fork Union, VA) passed on offers from Alabama, Florida and Miami to play for Bill O'Brien in Happy Valley.

Hackenberg takes Full Ride behind the scenes to describe what it was like to be recruited by Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Miami head coach Al Golden. Also, find out why Hackenberg felt like Penn State was the right place for him.

Make sure you check out our feature (above) to see what 247 Sports' National Scouting Director J.C. Shurburtt has to say about Hackenberg.

Hackenberg, who also plays high school baseball, threw for 2,164 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. His size and arm will remind Nittany Lions fans of former Penn State signal-caller Kerry Collins.

How committed is Hackenberg to Penn State? Does anyone else have a shot? Watch and find out.
