Today’s Penn State football news headlines feature a new offer to a 2019 defensive tackle recruit and James Franklin remarks at the AFCA convention.
The Lions sent out a new offer to Joshua Harris, a three-star prospect from Roxboro, N.C., writes Andrew Callahan for Lions247. Harris holds offers from Georgia, North Carolina, NC State and Virginia Tech, among others, and ranks as the No. 412 player in the country in the 247Sports composite.
Penn State coach Franklin was a panelist at the American Football Coaches Association’s Graduate Assistant career forum and made some interesting remarks about his career, his personality and two assistants on his staff who have expressed no desire to be head coaches. Once again, Callahan has more on Franklin, who said he owns being a “psychopath” in his remarks.
