Penn State is set to enter summer camp and turn its focus to the current team, but coach James Franklin is far from finished on the recruiting trail. The Nittany Lions are loaded with talent in their 2016 recruiting class and still have a number of high-profile targets within their reach. Penn State could still add big-time prospects to a class that has consensus top-10 rankings.
Franklin has 18 verbal commitments to date, and recruiting coordinator Andy Frank has gone on the record to give a projected target of 18 to 22 commitments in this class. Lavert Hill is a candidate to de-commit, but it would still appear Penn State has just a few select spots left and players such as Jordan Fuller, Tre Nixon, Brendan Ferns and Aaron Hansford who they hope will fill them.
Andrew P. Shay and Dustin Hockensmith talked about the current group, who the priority targets should be and more in a segment for the Keystone Sports Network this week.
