Cleezy's quick take on Penn State: Penn State sits comfortably at No. 2 in the Big Ten recruiting rankings even after five-star defensive end Micah Parsons de-committed last month. Penn State currently is ranked No. 4 in the overall rankings. The Nittany Lions are well on their way to finishing with a top ten ranking for their 2018 class.
