National Signing Day 2013: Welcome To Penn State, Christian Hackenberg

The top quarterback in the nation is officially a Nittany Lion.

It's official.

By sending in his Letter of Intent, Christian Hackenberg has become arguably the biggest recruit to sign with the Nittany Lions since Derrick Williams in the Class of 2005. The five-star rated quarterback out of Fort Union Military Academy (VA) committed to Penn State on February 29th and stuck with Penn State even after the NCAA sanctions threatened to keep him out of bowl games until at least his junior year. Hackenberg has been the leader of this recruiting class, along with Adam Breneman, and already seems to be Coach O'Brien's right-hand man.

Here's more analysis from the mothership. Hey, that author's name looks familiar.
