Penn State football signed a group of 15 players Wednesday in its initial 2021 signing class.

High school football players still have time to sign with a college team. Players can also sign on February 3 on the second football signing day.

Penn State brought in a group including four defensive backs, three wide receivers and a quarterback.

The class includes twin brothers Kalen and Kobe King from Cass Technical High School in Detroit. The class also features Liam Clifford – younger brother of Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford.

Another headliner includes quarterback Christian Veilleaux from Ontario, Canada. Villeaux played his high school football at Bullis School in Maryland. Wide receiver Lonnie White Jr. will also play baseball at Penn State.

Coach James Franklin and Director of Player Personnel Andy Frank both said the team will be more active in signing transfer players.
