James Franklin is just weeks away from signing his first recruiting class as the head coach at Penn State.
Franklin was named the 16th head coach in program history on Saturday. He replaces Bill O'Brien, who did a remarkable job of keeping the program competitive after the Jerry Sandusky scandal rocked the university back in 2011.
National signing day is just a few weeks away. On February 5, teenagers from around the country will sign on the dotted line, accepting scholarships to play football at the schools of their choice. It's the first real mile marker on what hopes to be a long journey for Franklin in Happy Valley.
