It's been a hell of a few weeks for Penn State.

First, Ohio State beat them out for the top in-state player and top receiver prospect in the country when Julian Fleming chose the Buckeyes over the Lions.

Less than 10 days later, Ohio State notched another recruiting victory over Penn State, flipping four-star offensive tackle Grant Toutant.

Then things went from bad to worse on Wednesday when four-star offensive lineman Aaryn Parks announced his decommitment from the program.

And then even worse, when his teammate, four-star cornerback Joshuah Moten, followed suit.

It's too early to say the wheels have fallen of for James Franklin and co., but if the Lions had stuck all three of those players, they'd be sitting pretty with the No. 7 class recruiting class in the country. Instead, they're outside of the top-20.

I guess they really aren't elite.
