James Franklin rarely responds to media rumors and speculation, but on Friday morning, he must have felt compelled to.
Calling recruiting “a crazy business,” the fourth-year head coach made a few other points in a not so subtle response to Thursday’s CBS Sports story that said “Penn State officials are preparing for Texas A&M to make a run at hiring James Franklin should Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies part ways.”
Writing on Twitter Friday morning, Franklin had this to say:
“Recruiting is a crazy business, people will do anything to create drama 1. From PA 2. #3 Ranked Team 3. #3 Ranked recruiting Class #WeAre”

So that should be that for the weekend and moving forward, as Franklin and his staff continue to travel around recruiting before returning to State College on Sunday to prepare for Michigan.
