In February, Penn State signed one of the best 15 recruiting classes in the country. Last week, the majority of the players who comprised that group arrived on campus ready to begin their college careers.

One of the first steps marking their arrival and their membership to the Nittany Lion roster is to learn which number they'll be wearing on their blue and white jersey.

Just a few months removed from Chris Godwin's selection in the NFL Draft, another wide receiver is set to don the No. 12. A couple years removed from the tenure of Christian Hackenberg, another quarterback will wear No. 14. Who landed which number? Let's take a look.
