The Nittany Lions have been making some big moves in their 2024 recruiting class, including adding two four-star recruits last week alone. On Tuesday, Penn State’s 2025 class picked up some momentum as Quanell X Farrakhan Jr. released his top-5 remaining schools — Penn State football is one of five remaining teams.

The Nittany Lions are joined by four other solid schools in his top-5: the Florida State Seminoles, the Georgia Bulldogs, the TCU Horned Frogs, and the Tennessee Volunteers.

According to the Rivals Network, Quanell X Farrakhan Jr. is a four-star wide receiver and is ranked the No. 33 player in the 2025 recruiting cycle — he stands at 6-1 and weighs in around 160 pounds, so he has some filling out to do before hitting the college ranks in a couple of years. Still, as a major 2025 talent, including Penn State in his top-5 is great news for Franklin and Co.
