Despite the restrictions put on recruiting at Penn State, head coach Bill O'Brien has done an excellent job of landing top recruits. The 2013 class is ranked as the 24th best in the country according to ESPN Recruiting Nation.
According to Nittany Nation's Josh Moyer, the Nittany Lions have only two scholarships remaining for the 2013 class.
After those spots are filled, O'Brien and his stiff will turn their attention to the class of 2014 and the future of Penn State football. Running back Mark Allen from Maryland has already given the Nittany Lions a verbal commitment to join the class of '14.
Due to the fact that scholarship numbers are going to be reduced, it's going to be important that the coaching staff does its homework and doesn't make mistakes in recruiting.
This slideshow looks at the two recruits who could round out the 2013 class and three guys who could begin to shape the 2014 Penn State recruiting class.
