Penn State's gears never stop running. Even outside of prime recruiting season, there's always plenty to talk about when you recruit as well as Franklin.

Ungar's Top-5

One of Penn State's two biggest targets at tight end in 2020, Lukas Ungar included Penn State in his top-5 along with Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, Stanford. That's quite the star-studded list.

Ungar hasn't been too involved with the recruiting process up to this point, though he's been to Penn State's campus a couple of times. He hasn't taken enough visits to really get an idea of where he'll end up, so it'll be important to keep an eye on where he sets up future visits.

Diggs' Top-11

Penn State is hoping to continue to flood the defensive end room with top-end talent. This is a step in the right direction, as 2020 four-star defensive end Fadil Diggs included Penn State in his top-11 along with Georgia, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina, Temple, Tennessee, Florida, Texas A&M, and West Virginia.

It's tough to take much from a top schools list of this size, but still, a good sign that Penn State made the cut. This is more likely a precursor to another list-shortening in the future.

Sampah's Top-8

In case you missed it over the weekend, Penn State also made the cut for one of their top overall targets in 2020 five-star linebacker Antoine Sampah. Penn State may be playing slightly from behind in this one, but one good visit could catapult them to the top.

New offers

Penn State went down to familiar territory at IMG Academy, offering 2020 three-star defensive end Josh Griffis (Bradenton, FL).

Penn State also went into New England to offer 2020 three-star tight/defensive end Cam Large (Dedham, MA). At 6-5, 240 pounds, his name is appropriate.

The Nittany Lions went down I-80 into the Garden State to offer 2020 four-star defensive end Amin Vanover (Montvale, NJ).
