It was a long day for Christian Hackenberg (Fork Union, Va./Fork Union).

The Penn State commit -- and ESPN's No. 16 overall prospect -- struggled Saturday behind a shaky offensive line and a solid Hermitage (Richmond, Va.) defense in a 38-0 loss.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pound quarterback went just 13-of-27 for 141 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. He fumbled once.
