Four more members of Penn State's 2021 recruiting class have arrived on campus, along with another high profile transfer. Safeties Zakee Wheatley and Jaylen Reed, wide receiver Harrison Wallace, and linebacker Jamari Buddin are the four newest freshmen, while offensive line transfer Eric Wilson has made his way to town as well.

11 of the 16 members of the 2021 class are now on campus, with Landon Tengwall, Kalen King, Kobe King, Christian Veilleux, Rodney McGraw, Jeffrey Davis, and Nate Bruce enrolling back in January. Wilson joins fellow transfers Johnny Dixon, Arnold Ebiketie, Derrick Tangelo, Winston Eubanks, and John Lovett.

Freshman enrolling for the May semester is a bit a new trend, but a handful of players have been able to parlay that extra month on campus into early playing time - with Pat Freiermuth and PJ Mustipher being the biggest names to do so.

The remainder of Penn State's 2021 recruiting class will get to campus in June.
