Penn State Football: 4 Freshmen the Nittany Lions Can Build Around
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Penn State Nittany Lions just wrapped up the first full season of recruiting under head coach Bill O'Brien. The class includes quarterback Christian Hackenberg, one of the most sought-after quarterbacks in the country. Aside from the star signal-caller, the class also includes several players who should set a good foundation for years to come.

Despite NCAA sanctions, which included a four-year bowl ban, the Nittany Lions finished with the 24th-best class for 2013, according to ESPN. While the class is highlighted by Hackenberg and a few other 4-star recruits, it's made primarily up of 3-star guys who will bring needed depth to the roster.

O'Brien did a great job of adding solid guys who can fill holes in the roster. This class will help set a strong foundation for Penn State teams in the years to come. While most of the freshmen likely won't see much playing time in 2013, there are several key components of the class who can be built around for the future.
