Penn State is stacking big chips in its top-ranked 2018 recruiting class. It may add a few more in the coming weeks, according to the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions.
247’s Andrew Callahan listed five players who are trending toward the Nittany Lions. The highest-rated is 4-star S Isheem Young, the No. 55 player in his class. The Imhotep (Philadelphia) prospect has an impressive offer list, but seven of eight Crystal Ball projections see him going to Penn State.
Four-star WR Daniel George, the No. 152 player in the Class of 2018, has 11 Penn State predictions in his favor. According to 247, Maryland and Virginia Tech are the biggest competition for the Oxon Hill, Md., prospect. Another wide receiver, 4-star recruit Shaquon Anderson-Butts, has seven projections in his favor. He’s the teammate of 5-star DE Micah Parsons, the top-rated commit in Penn State’s 2018 class.
