With no surprises good or bad, the Penn State football 2013 recruiting class was officially announced on Wednesday.
And with 17 letters of intent signed (12 on Wednesday and five early enrollees), there comes a batch of players with high profiles along with those who flew under the radar.
Regardless if recruiting services drooled over a player or not, they'll all be in the same position when they strap on that white helmet—gunning for a starting job and playing time.
While many programs may like to ease the majority of freshmen into the mix, the Nittany Lions will be looking for a handful of first-year guys to step up and potentially start during the 2013 campaign.
With that being said, let's take a look at five members of the 2013 class with a solid chance of starting come the fall.
