At James Franklin's address to Penn State's Faculty Senate on Academics, Onward State has the following:
= When asked by a faculty member about his top priority, Franklin said he started with putting together a staff. Now, it’s recruiting players. In fact, as part of that, he had plans to take a red eye flight Tuesday to California to recruit.
At the same time, Franklin, who is known for his plan to "dominate the state", says he’s "embarrassed" that Penn State currently does not have commitment from any of Pennsylvania’s top 10 players.
"That should never happen," he says.
Still, he says that may change.
"We think we got a chance to hopefully swing the number one player in the state back in our direction," Franklin says. "We believe in that." =
So, the no. 1 player in Pa. is Montae Nicholson, a DB from Monroeville, Gateway H.S., where Terry Smith has 'some pull'. And, JF is taking a red eye to Cali to recruit. So the question is; does this man ever sleep?
