#AskLoogs: Penn State's future

1/31/2014

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation senior analyst Tom Luginbill a question about your team? Tweet it to @TomLuginbill using the hashtag #AskLoogs.

Possibly yes, but it may not be for a couple of years. In order for Penn State to have a chance at top-10 classes again, it needs to get back up to a full complement of scholarships. It’s a complete numbers game. We’ve had Penn State ranked in each of the last two classes even with scholarship restrictions, which is a reflection of the state of the program Bill O’Brien left for James Franklin. The good news is that the 2013 class will actually be able to compete for a conference championship and be eligible for bowl games if they redshirted. The current class is in even better shape, which should help Franklin in his cause because there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not an oncoming train.
