STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State football players emerged from the Lasch Football Building at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after meeting with their new coach, James Franklin, for the first time.
Roll was taken at the meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes. Every player attended, including Penn State's five early enrollees. None was made available to the media afterward.
On Saturday, Penn State formally introduced Franklin in a news conference at Beaver Stadium.
"It is going to be a sprint from here on out, and that is talking to the players, the current players," Franklin said. "We've got a lot of work to do in a very, very short period of time, and it's time-sensitive because of the recruiting process as well."
