Penn State Coach James Franklin Discusses Football Recruitment for the Nittany Lions

Four players committed to, and two disbanded, Penn State’s 2023 recruiting class in July, as the cycle began to wrap up home to the early signing period. Before that, there will be plenty of time left for players to change their mind. Coaches too.

For Penn State’s James Franklin, that’s part of the recruiting problem.

“Let’s face it,” Franklin said. “That dedication and that loyalty is a two-way street. We see some institutions that rip guys off right before Signing Day because they find someone they think is better. But then they get mad when a player does it to them. To me that’s something true recruits and high school coaches and parents should look at.”
