What would fans ask Franklin: Why isn’t PSU dominating the state in recruiting?

Wednesday is media day for Penn State, with James Franklin and the assistant coaches getting set to answer questions from the media for the upcoming season.

We thought it would be fun to pose this question to fans: What would you ask Franklin if given the chance?

I received some good questions through Twitter, text and email. This one stood out, since the recruiting struggles have been an ongoing issue of late, and the result is definitely not PSU “dominating the state” in recruiting.

Another recruiting question:

As for the football, these were some good questions:

There also are some off-the-field topics of note.

Additionally, there was this question posed by text: Will Kirk Ciarrocca use tight end Pat Freiermuth a lot? That will be interesting to see, since Freiermuth has superstar potential, but Minnesota didn’t throw to the tight ends a lot when Ciarrocca was there.

You can still post your questions for Franklin @CoryGiger on Twitter.
