It's never too early to predict who may start for Penn State a few years down the road.
The Nittany Lions have a relatively young roster. Some key players have come via the last few recruiting classes, and they should be around for a few more seasons. Head coach James Franklin has a solid foundation in which to build on.
Players recently signed to Penn State's 2014 recruiting class were also factored into the projections. These players are the ones listed as either juniors or redshirt sophomores.
It's not worth it to speculate, so players from future recruiting classes are not referenced by name. Placeholders (i.e. "2015 Recruit") will show that Penn State will probably have to find its starter in 2016 by way of the upcoming recruiting period.
Here's what the starters could look like in 2016.
