Scout looks at Penn State's No. 1 recruiting class, which features No. 6 QB Justin Fields and No. 2 RB Ricky Slade

In the second of two parts, Scout examines the offensive players in Penn State's No. 1-ranked recruiting class.

When coach James Franklin hired Joe Moorhead to run Penn State's offense there was plenty of excitement, and it was merited as the Nittany Lions exploded in their run to the Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl appearance.

Recruits were quick to take notice as well, with some jumping on board before Moorhead called his first game at the school.

The Nittany Lions sit No. 1 in Scout's class of 2018 rankings, and they nabbed some impressive and high-ranked skill position commitments.

In the second of this two-part feature (video is at the top of the page), Scout takes a look at the offensive players committed to the Nittany Lions. Of the 11 commits, six are on that side of the ball.

Georgia quarterback Justin Fields and Virginia running back Ricky Slade are the headliners of the group, but the talent does not end there.

Scout 100 receiver Justin Shorter and tight ends Zack Kuntz and Patrick Freiermuth are potential play makers committed to Penn State. In-state offensive lineman Chris Bleich is also on board.
