Jesse JamesRick Scuteri/AP ImagesOne of the top 2012 recruits in the Penn State class, Jesse James has quickly developed and could be an impact player for Penn State this fall.
Penn State's 2012 recruiting class didn't make ESPN's top 25 class rankings -- nor were any recruits ranked in the ESPN 150 -- but this class could graduate as one of the most memorable for other reasons. No offensive prospect (and only one defensive recruit) left in the face of unprecedented NCAA sanctions, and this year's incoming class offers Penn State some hope for the future.

The offense is primarily filled with three-star guys, and four-star wideout Eugene Lewis is slated to be the star of the class. This group is expected to see more immediate playing time than most due to the NCAA sanctions, so NittanyNation takes a closer look at each incoming offensive recruit and breaks down what ESPN's scouts had to say before each player donned the Blue and White.
