There was a fleeting moment two seasons ago where we sat at number 1. Didnt end there
Quick thing worth highlighting - this is a highly touted player from SEC country. National recruiting has been missing from PSU for a while (and arguably has never been here really). If you want to play with the big boys, you have to protect your base and poach a couple here and there nationally. We are increasingly seeing Franklin do that.
At the risk of getting lambasted, it always bothered me that PSU didnt seem to think of itself as national power during the JoePa era (although, admittedly I am most familiar with the 21st part of that). I never thought we got our fair share of recruits from outside the DMV. But Franklin has the right scope in mind IMO and the results are showing. We are...national!
