James Franklin spoke to the media on National Signing Day.

Penn State has the 6th-best recruiting class of 2022 per 247Sports. The Nittany Lions have the No. 2 class in the B1G with 25 total commits that includes 3 5-star recruits, 13 4-star recruits, and 9 3-star recruits.

Franklin also discussed the rumors surrounding a potential B1G conference realignment. There have been talks about possibly getting rid of divisions all together, much like the Big 12. The idea is that the best 2 teams would meet in the B1G conference championship.

Penn State also has been in the spotlight recently after DE Bryce Mostella accused the program and Franklin of neglecting his mental health. Franklin chose not to comment on the accusations at this time.

Lastly, Franklin also talked about the importance of hiring minority coaches in College Football and the NFL. This comes after the news about the Brian Flores lawsuit against the NFL and 3 of its teams came out recently.

Here’s all of what Franklin had to say at his press conference:
