STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - James Franklin scrolled through his Twitter feed. Between swift swipes of his finger, the Penn State coach looked up to watch ESPN's national signing day coverage on a large flat-screen TV. He peered back down through his glasses and surveyed the thick binder in front of him. On his second signing day in Happy Valley, Franklin spent the morning inside the "war room," an upstairs space in the Lasch Football Building on the university's...

STATE COLLEGE - During a moment of silence, Penn State coach James Franklin sat at the head of a table in a crowded room in the Lasch Football Building - in the midst of yesterday morning's National Signing Day "war room" - and stared into space. Franklin, sporting a light-blue button-up shirt with an attached microphone for talking with commits on Skype and FaceTime, broke his trance, felt a hand on his back, looked up and saw his wife, Fumi, standing next to him and smiling.

James Franklin received plenty of attention - and some criticism - during his introductory news conference as Penn State's new head coach about 13 months ago when he said he wanted to "dominate the state" in recruiting. On Wednesday, he came to the same podium in the Beaver Stadium press room to talk about the Nittany Lions' signed recruiting class of 2015, armed with numbers showing that he pretty much did what he said he intended to do. "We had seven of the top 10 players in the state of Pennsylvania, the most in more than a decade," Franklin said.

STATE COLLEGE - On Jan. 11, 2014, James Franklin made a promise. "We are going to dominate the state," the coach said without blinking an eye. "Dominate the state" - it's been hashtagged on Twitter and printed on T-shirts since Franklin's introductory news conference as the Nittany Lions' football coach, and, while many have overused or overblown the motto, it wasn't an empty claim. Franklin put himself and his staff out on a limb, but, as long as there aren't any surprises today on National Signing Day, he'll have the results to back up that promise.

Pennsylvania State University would require most of its employees - from janitors to professors and secretaries - to report allegations of sexual misconduct, under a recommendation from a university task force report being released Thursday. But the employees could offer to refer a victim to a mental-health counselor or certain other staffers who could keep the story confidential. The recommendation, one of 18 to emerge from the report on campus sexual assault and misconduct, would be unusual for so large a university, though it has been adopted by some smaller colleges.

STATE COLLEGE - Born and raised a mere 45 minutes from the Philadelphia sports complex, Penn State defenseman Connor Varley was surrounded by Flyers fans. He wasn't one of them, though. Varley, like his dad, was raised as a New York Rangers fan. Imagine how well that went growing up. "There was definitely a little animosity," Varley said with a laugh. "And I got a few trips here and there. " Sure, he didn't live and die by the orange and black. But doesn't mean Varley won't cherish coming home this weekend.

George Washington High's Shareef Miller, a hard-charging defensive end with a quick first step, committed Sunday to play at Penn State while on an official visit to State College. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound senior, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, chose the Nittany Lions over runner-up Pittsburgh, Arizona State, Florida, Miami, Rutgers, and Temple, among others. "He wanted to stay pretty close to home," said Ron Cohen, Washington's recently retired coach. "He likes it at Penn State.

ISSUE | STATE OF UNION Steady course President Obama presented commonsense investments that will allow our economy to continue to grow ("Long division," Jan. 21). Six years into his presidency, the numbers don't lie: Our economy is booming, and unemployment is down to prerecession levels. While Obama doesn't deserve all the credit, his policies are largely working. Whether it's making college more accessible or providing more tax cuts for the middle class, his proposals will be strategic investments that can benefit not just the middle class but the broader society, and continue the momentum.
