I would love to get this guy.
Hackenberg was a 5-star recruit, as was the TE he recruited last year.
The impressive thing to me is that he was able to sell Penn State to the best QB and TE in the nation last year. Those guys signed with Penn State knowing that they would never be eligible to win a conference title or play in a bowl game.
