Full Ride@BR_FullRideB/R VideoJuly 30, 2012

Penn State has been hit with harsh sanctions by the NCAA, and it's put head coach Bill O'Brien under fire. In order to keep things from getting worse, he has to be able to maintain his top recruits at Penn State. 

247Sports national recruiting director J.C. Shurburtt tells us which commits O'Brien will need to hold on to in order to maintain his team and stabilize the program.

One of Penn State's top recruits is 6'4", 230-pound Garrett Sickels. This defensive end posted 76 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior. Sickels is an important piece to the 2013 class that the Nittany Lions will need to keep.

Find out who else makes up Penn State's 2013 class and what makes them elite players.

Make sure to watch our exclusive interviews with DE Garrett Sickels, TE Adam Breneman and QB Christian Hackenberg.
