Penn State Ranked No. 13 In ESPN’s College Football Future Power Rankings

ESPN ranked Penn State football at No. 13 in its “Future Power Rankings” that it released on Thursday.

ESPN examined teams’ offense-defense balance, recruiting performance, and potential coaching changes to project how teams will perform over the next three seasons. It also did future rankings for three specific positions, and the Nittany Lions finished in the top 25 of all of them. James Franklin’s squad finished No. 14 in the Future QB ranking, No. 17 offensively, and No. 16 defensively.

According to ESPN, players like Sean Clifford, Pat Freiermuth, and KJ Hamler will carry Penn State’s offense to success through the 2021 season, while Micah Parsons and Jayson Oweh will play huge roles on defense over the course of the next three seasons.

Penn State finished last season ranked No. 17 in AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll after finishing with a 9-4 record, and it opens the 2019 season against Idaho at Beaver Stadium on August 31.

We’re not exactly sure how ESPN can accurately simplify the next three seasons into just one ranking, but we’ll see what the lucky number 13 means for the Nittany Lions through 2021.
