Well--that's why a New Jersey high school player--RB/DB Myles Hartfield--chose Penn State.
In the end, he liked what he saw in the rest of the class of 2015 and in new head coach James Frankin (via NJ.com):
"Coach Franklin, he said once you commit to me we're engaged. So I'm engaged, right now. It's great. He said once you shake my hand all the recruiting is over. So I shook his hand, I'm a man of my word and it's over. I'm just so happy to be a part of the We Are family."
The site 247Sports has the Nittany Lions ranked No. 3 in the nation for the class of 2015.
Things like this have to make the Penn State faithful happy. To have a quality player commit because of the coach and the quality of his teammates--and competition--speak volumes about the program.
Exactly the kind of thing they hoped would happen more often when Franklin came on board.
