Good morning Penn State fans. While there is positive news, especially regarding recruiting, surrounding the Nittany Lions, a bit of negative press came out on Tuesday. During a rape trial in Tennessee involving former Vanderbilt football players, allegations arose that head coach James Franklin made contact with the victim. In other news, Penn State is at the top of the list for 4-star athlete Myles Hartsfield and Northeast recruits have noticed Penn State’s fast start under Franklin.
