Penn State is getting ready to hit the field this Saturday for the Blue-White Spring Game. On Wednesday, head coach James Franklin met with the media to discuss a number of topics.

Franklin also pointed to the spring game as a helpful piece for recruiting with the ability to host prospects for the weekend:

Franklin also discussed the competitions going on at two positions this spring for the Nittany Lions, particularly at the QB and RB groups. He noted Sean Clifford was shut down for periods of time to give Penn State a chance to see the other QBs in action.

Franklin also discussed competition at RB as the Nittany Lions look to bounce back with a more effective ground game in 2022.
