Penn State football chat, 8 p.m., June 9

The Nittany Lions picked up another verbal commitment and James Franklin ran his first summer camp. Let’s chat about that and more tonight at 8.

James Franklin is stirring some controversy by taking his staff on the road this week to work football camps.

James Franklin is stirring some controversy by taking his staff on the road this week to work football camps.

The Lions received a verbal pledge from another New Jersey prospect in speedy cornerback Myles Hartsfield. Could they be in line for a much bigger commitment in the coming days?

While Penn State held its first summer came this past weekend, Franklin and his staff are now off to work a few out-of-state camps that have gotten the attention of SEC coaches. And they’re not too happy about it. What’s your take on the matter?

And if you don’t have time to join me tonight, drop a question or comment into the chat at any time and I’ll make sure to answer it first.

In the meantime, check out my piece today on a future Penn State varsity athlete you probably don’t know about … but should.

    Any news on Simmons or Baker? Who is our top choice for a LB in this class?

    • Frank Bodani says:

      Hi Jeff, I have not heard any news on stud Virginia middle linebacker Jahvoni Simmons. But I appreciate the tip that he may have been offered recently by Penn State. Do they have a shot? I’m not optimistic until you see some movement Simmons’ way. Tough call on linebacker prospects. Still think Manny Bowen is top choice if his academics are in order.

    I think the SEC coaches are just upset bc they can’t travel to other camps

    • Frank Bodani says:

      Actually, any coaching staff can do what Penn State is doing. But where do the SEC coaches want to camp at? They recruit mostly in the Southeast so it doesn’t do them a lot of good to, say, work a camp a thousand miles away in Michigan. They just don’t like someone else coming down to take a crack at their talent like Franklin is doing.
