Penn State Makes the Cut for Two Major 2019 Targets

As random top-whatever lists for recruits go, these two matter significantly for James Franklin and staff. Marquis Wilson (Avon, Conn.) and Ronnie Hickman (Wayne, N.J.) are 2019 four-star athletes with a host of blue-blood offers.


Wilson will travel to Ohio State for an official visit this weekend, and the fallout from that trip will likely tell us a lot about where things stand. He's visited Penn State more over the last year than any other school (3 times), and the Nittany Lions hold 100 percent of his Crystal Ball picks. 


The first things you'll notice are Hickman only has six favorites (kudos), and a better edit guy than Wilson (fist bump). While Hickman has been to Penn State five times over the last year, it seems like the Buckeyes are way out in front on this one, owning all 12 of his Crystal Ball picks.
