Following the sanctions levied on the Penn State football program, many wondered how they'd be able to convince kids to come play in this type of situation.
Now, people have been left wondering not only how Bill O'Brien kept the players already committed, but also how he continues to add more depth to the 2013 class.
As reported by Blue-White Illustrated, the Nittany Lions added three more commits after an important recruiting weekend, highlighted by Christian Hackenberg, Adam Breneman and other members of the class attending the Penn State men's basketball game on Saturday.
Regardless of the number of stars or ranking, these 16 verbal commitments are expected to eventually play a role on the Lions in the next four years.
However, who will wait and who will play right away?
Not saying these guys will definitely start, but let's take a look at what 2013 recruits have the best chance to earn a starting job come next season.
