Signed and sealed: PSU Nittany Lions
By Adam Rittenberg
Penn State's 2011 recruiting class is now official. The Nittany Lions signed 16 players this year.
The class includes five in-state players, three from New Jersey and two from Maryland.
Penn State signed seven offensive players, seven defensive players, one specialist and one athlete.
Here's the position breakdown:
A few notes:
- The class includes two ESPNU 150 prospects, offensive lineman Angelo Mangiro and athlete Bill Belton. Penn State signed six ESPNU 150 players in its 2010 class, which rated as the Big Ten's best.
- Penn State is listing Adrian Amos as a cornerback even though he played safety in high school.
- The Lions didn't sign a quarterback for the third time in the past five seasons.
