Penn State football coach James Franklin and his staff are off to a terrific start, as far as the 2015 recruiting class is concerned.
According to 247Sports, the Nittany Lions have a top five class, and they've sat at the top of the list for a brief period this spring.
Of the 12 recruits currently committed to Penn State, nine are rated as 4-star prospects, according to the 247Sports Composite ratings.
That being said, it's April and none of the players currently committed can sign their letters of intent until next February. For anyone who has followed recruiting closely in the past, those nine months can be an eternity.
Here's a look at the top players from each position that Penn State is targeting, whether they're currently committed or not.
