LB Brennan Franklin leaves PSU

This summer, Brennan Franklin became the first football player to commit to Penn State following the NCAA's sanctions on the program. Faced with an impending scholarship crunch, Bill O'Brien and his staff reached out to some under-the-radar prospects to fill out the 2012 recruiting class before the roster would be even more limited. Enter Franklin, a linebacker from Arizona who was headed to junior college before getting the call from Ted Roof.

As expected, Franklin took a redshirt year this past season, but now it seems he will never have the opportunity to don the Blue and White.

It would be irresponsible to speculate on what those personal reasons might be, but we'll wish Brennan the best in all his future endeavors, both on and off the football field. It took at whole lot of guts to commit to Penn State when he did, and we'll always be thankful for that. If nothing else, he's become the unlikely answer to a very obscure trivia question.
