James Franklin will look to continue Penn State's molten-hot recruiting summer by securing a pledge from four-star defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins (Cincinnati, Ohio) on Thursday morning. Two weeks ago, Hawkins announced his final two of PSU and the University of Cincinnati.
The time has come! Commitment coming to you tomorrow morning at 10am. Thank you to everyone who has made this dream possible.

lloyd getting noticed
247Sports Steve Wiltfong dropped a little blurb about another running back from DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.) that is skyrocketing up recruiting rankings, and piling up offers. Marshawn Lloyd is the next blue chipper from one of the best programs in the nation. The 2020 prospect already boasts four major offers and will probably accumulate 10 times that number before he makes his college decision. Expect Penn State to take a long look at Lloyd.
This is awesome. Penn State's 2018 LB Class on full display.
