Penn State’s 2020 recruiting class now has eight members and ranks seventh nationally, according to and 247Sports. The Lions are No. 2 in the Big Ten behind Ohio State with eight months to go before the 2020 early signing period begins.

Brevard is the top-ranked player in Indiana, according to Rivals, who had offers from Clemson, Wisconsin and Indiana, among others. Adams is a 314-pound tackle whose offer list included Florida State, Duke, Miami and Virginia Tech.

Penn State hosted a large contingent of prospects Saturday, though none on official visits. Last week, coach James Franklin said he planned to save official visits for later in the recruiting process.

“It’s a very, very long time between now and signing day," Franklin said. “… Then, it takes away from our players. I don’t get enough time with our players and our players’ parents.”
