The Penn State Nittany Lions, under new head coach James Franklin, have already had a great recruiting season. The 2015 class currently consists of 12 recruits and is ranked as the No. 3 class in the nation according to 247Sports.com. With several top recruits still yet to decided on a college choice, the Nittany Lions have a chance to build on an already great class. 4-star offensive tackle Sterling Jenkins, who is deciding between Penn State and Ohio State, will reportedly make his choice soon.
According to KDKA in Pittsburgh, Jenkins plans to announce his choice on the channel at 6:00 pm on Tuesday.

It was reported recently that Jenkins had narrowed his final two to the Buckeyes and the Nittany Lions.
Penn State has so far lived up to Franklin motto to “Dominate the State” in recruiting. Five of Penn State’s 2015 recruits are from the state of Pennsylvania and four of the five are 4-star prospects. Jenkins, from Baldwin High School in Pittsburgh, is the top recruits in Pennsylvania and one of the top in the nation at his position. He’s already got a great frame to work with, six-foot-eight, 305 pounds, and will be a great addition on the offensive line.
He first visited Happy Valley on February 15 for Junior Day. He visited again on March 22 and made his third visit on April 12 for the annual Blue-White Game. Before visiting the Nittany Lions in April, he made a stop in Columbus to talk with the Buckeyes.
Jenkins took to Twitter to comment on his choice to announce his decision publicly.
Committing publicly like I see other recruits doing seems like a cool idea
