Penn State's 2010 football recruiting class got a little bit bigger in the past two days.

This weekend, Penn State is holding a senior-only camp at the university. The camp has paid off for the Nittany Lions. when two defensive line prospects committed, one on Friday, and another on Saturday.

Friday's commitment was from 6'2'', 310-pound lineman Evan Hailes of Virginia. Hailes is a highly recruited prospect who had offers from Clemson, LSU, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, etc. According to scout.com, Hailes is the No. 15 defensive tackle prospect in the country, as well as a four-star player. Rivals.com also has Hailes as a four-star prospect. He is an Under Armour All-American.

Saturday came with another prospect commitment. This one from Daquan Jones of New York. Jones is a 6'4'', 300-pound Defensive Tackle. He is rated as a four-star prospect by scout.com, as well as the No. 9 DT in the country. Jones chose Penn State over a bunch of other schools that included Syracuse, NC State, Maryland, etc.

The commitments of two defensive tackle prospects in two days makes Penn State's 2010 class much "bigger".

The two commitments move Penn State into the No. 5 spot in the class rankings according to scout.com. With Penn State's defensive line being so dominant the past few years, these were two very important commitments with the Lions best DTs graduating in the next few years.
