Penn State has no shortage of top prospects inside the latest On300 for the Class of 2024. Following Monday’s release, the Nittany Lions have already hosted more than 50 players who made the cut. The list includes future Penn State offensive lineman Cooper Cousins. The Erie, Pa., native comes in at No. 271 in the latest update.

The top of the list features a few notable changes. Washington, D.C., native and five-star edge rusher Dylan Stewart is now the top-ranked player in the nation. Avon Old Farms edge rusher Benedict Umeh also made a massive move, going from unranked to No. 24 in the nation. Umeh is expected to visit Penn State this spring.

A few other prospects who made major moves include QB Luke Kromenhoek, CB Jon Mitchell, OL Ethan Calloway and DE Darien Mayo. Just like Umeh, both Kromenhoek and Mayo were previously outside the On300. Kromenhoek climbed to No. 59 nationally, while Mayo is up to No. 92. Mitchell climbed 156 spots to No. 61 nationally, while Calloway climbed over 50 spots to No. 71.

You’ll also find multiple Penn State prospects who made major moves between 101 and 200. Offensive lineman Kevin Heywood was one of those players, climbing 64 spots to No. 119 nationally. WR Chance Robinson from Florida also climbed more than 50 spots, ending up at No. 150 overall. OL Deontae Armstrong, DE Mylachi Williams and OL Nyier Daniels also made significant moves. Williams and Daniels were both previously outside the On300. Armstrong climbed 75 spots to No. 194.
