Penn State is one of the early national storylines in the Class of 2015. With six ESPN 300 commitments already in the fold, and the No. 3 ranking in the first edition of the RecruitingNation class rankings, the Nittany Lions are positioned nicely to make a run at top-five class, even though scholarship restrictions are still in place.

Here are 10 players, nine of whom are in the ESPN 300, James Franklin and his staff are still looking to secure:

No. 10 Tim Settle: The five-star defensive tackle has Alabama, Penn State, Virginia and Florida State seriously in the mix along with Oklahoma, Clemson, Michigan, Ohio State and Virginia Tech. He has the ability to lift a class that is knocking on the door into the top five all by himself.
