We’re halfway to National Signing Day for the Class of 2025 for Penn State football.

As the calendar turns to July, we’re down to six months until December when committed athletes can finally put pen to paper and officially sign their National Letter of Intent.

As things stand today, James Franklin and his assistants have put together another recruiting class with a number of Top 200 nationally ranked players.

In terms of Team Recruiting Rankings, Penn State is ranked No. 5 by and No. 8 by 247Sports.

That’s a very impressive overall ranking, despite Penn State getting a couple of de-commitments, keep in mind that they’re still very much in the mix for a handful of highly ranked 4-star recruits, namely wide receiver Taz Williams, Jr. and wide receiver Koby Howard.

When taking a look at Penn State’s current 19 commitments, fans like to discuss who the top individual players in the class are. While that obviously is subjective and no one truly knows the answer to that question, national recruiting sites certainly have an opinion about that, and oftentimes they don’t even agree.

Rivals and 247Sports are two of the most respected recruiting services in the country and here’s who they rank as the top five individual players in Penn State’s Class of 2025.


  1. 4-star cornerback Daryus Dixson (Santa Ana, California)
  2. 4-star cornerback Jahmir Joseph (Montvale, New Jersey)
  3. 4-star running back Jabree Coleman (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
  4. 4-star linebacker Alex Tatsch (Latrobe, Pennsylvania)
  5. 4-star DE Jayden Woods (Shawnee, Kansas)
