One day after launching, NittanyNation has more coverage of Lions recruiting and preseason camp.

Josh Moyer breaks down the 2012 offensive class Insider: No offensive prospects left in the face of unprecedented NCAA sanctions, so this year's incoming class offers Penn State some hope for the future.

Moyer breaks down the 2012 defensive class Insider: The defensive players in Penn State's 2012 recruiting class are not the most heralded the Nittany Lions have ever snagged. But defense has been a strength of Penn State since before some of these recruits' parents were born -- and that's not expected to change.

Moyer writes: Coach Bill O'Brien and his staff have emphasized a new workout routine this offseason, one that has made walking to classes a little harder on those linemen. The system focuses on a balance of flexibility and strength, treating linemen not just as bodybuilders, but as athletes.

Moyer writes Insider: ESPN 150 defensive tackle Keith Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./Atlantic Community) recently received offers from Penn State and Nebraska, according to one of his tweets Wednesday afternoon.

Moyer writes: Not that it came as a big surprise, but Penn State commit Christian Hackenberg (Fork Union, Va./Fork Union), the nation’s No. 1 quarterback prospect, tied for second at the Elite 11.
