Penn State Football Morning Briefing: Recruiting Update, James Franklin Turning Away 2015 Recruits and Other News


Most Penn State fans were likely hoping to wake up this morning to the news that former wide receiver Allen Robinson was taken in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, meaning Robinson and the other Penn State draft prospects will have to wait to hear their names. Elsewhere, there’s more recruiting news, as an update of targets is given and James Franklin has had to begin turning players away due to the size of his 2015 class.
