Following Monday's release of the Rivals100, there's no shortage of Penn State prospects in the updated Rivals250, either. Excluding those that have already committed elsewhere, James Franklin and his staff have extended verbal scholarship offers to 103 prospects inside the Rivals250. Of those players, 40 have already taken at least one unofficial visit to University Park.

Spots 101-250 feature a handful of notable changes for some of Penn State's top targets, although you won't find many changes near the top. Defensive lineman Katron Evans, Jahzion Harris and Aaron Armitage all stayed within the top 110, while defensive tackle George Rooks moved up 18 spots to No. 116 overall. You'll also find three of Penn State's top offensive line targets, Jager Burton, Wyatt Milum and Tristan Leigh, all between No. 142 and No. 157.

Four other notable prospects inside the top 200 include WR Jalil Farooq, LB Demeioun Robinson, QB Christian Veilleux and DE Elijah Jeudy. Of those players, Jeudy moved up the most, improving 29 spots to No. 190.

The bottom features a few new additions to the list. WR Malcolm Johnson, DT Marcus Bradley and Ath. Zakee Wheatley all appear for the first time. Both Bradley and Wheatley visited Penn State this past weekend. You'll also find LB Jamari Buddin, Saf. Jaylen Reed, QB Jake Rubley, DE Kechaun Bennett and DT Tyleik Williams among that group.
