Penn State reached a major milestone in its 2019 recruiting cycle Wednesday, finalizing plans with 18 prospects during the Early Signing Period. The Nittany Lions are position to potentially secure a second consecutive top-10 class, though there are a few remaining needs.
James Franklin and Penn State assistants swarmed across America during recent weeks, attempting to put the finishing touches on lengthy recruitments. In some cases, these efforts will extend deep into winter leading up to the traditional National Signing Day (first Wednesday of February), but the large bulk of this class is complete.
Propelled by a series of impressive late-spring commitments, the Nittany Lions have assembled another quality collection of incoming talent.
Some members of the class, such as local State College cornerback Keaton Ellis and New Jersey quarterback Taquan Roberson, picked PSU during their junior year of high school. Others decided during the 2018 season or afterward, including the latest additions — Florida running back Noah Cain and New York defensive end Adisa Isaac.
Those four mentioned players will enroll early, along with more than half of the class. They are only weeks away from arriving on campus as early enrollees.
While we wait to see how the Nittany Lons close this cycle, let’s take a look at recruits who currently compose the class. We’ve listed each signee, in alphabetical order, below.
