Pennsylvania State University has chosen one of its former deans - Florida State University president Eric J. Barron, who led the school in Tallahassee to national recognition for efficient operations - as its 18th president, a Penn State source confirmed Friday. Barron, 62, who was at Penn State from 1986 to 2006, the last four years as dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, has run Florida State, his alma mater, for almost four years. Penn State's board of trustees has scheduled a meeting for Monday in State College to vote on Barron's appointment.

The University of Pennsylvania Health System and Lancaster General Health announced an alliance Tuesday that could increase Penn's share of patients who need the most complex levels of care. "That's not going to happen in one day," said Ralph W. Muller, chief executive of the Penn health system. "These are patients who are now going to Jefferson, they are going to Hopkins, they are going to Penn State, and other areas. Over a period of time, more of those patients will come to Penn, and that does benefit us. " A financial benefit to Lancaster General could be better pricing at Penn for high-level treatments and procedures, such as heart transplants, said Thomas E. Beeman, president and CEO of Lancaster General.

STATE COLLEGE - The usual markings of national signing day were there - the faxed letters, the onslaught of phone calls and the press conference. But there were also scenes foreign to Penn State on the day high school players can officially commit to a collegiate program. There was the signing-day "war room" filled with balloons and cheers when commitments were announced; the trumpet section of the Blue Band even played a fight song after one player's letter was officially received.

  For his on-field mean streak and lights-out blocking, Ryan Bates was a high-profile member of the football Class of 2015 even before Archbishop Wood's drive last season to the PIAA Class AAA state championship. The offensive tackle's recruiting stock has continued to rise, with Big Ten powers Michigan and Michigan State, last year's conference champion, offering scholarships to the 6-foot-5, 280-pound stalwart last week. "It's real exciting," said Bates, an Inquirer first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection last season.

For his first recruiting class as the head coach at Penn State, James Franklin leaned on the relationships he developed with the recruits he had attracted both at his current job and at his former position at Vanderbilt. The result was a full class of 20 players, including a final commitment on Wednesday, who returned their letters of intent and officially became members of the Nittany Lions' incoming class for 2014. "The staff kept recruiting and kept making phone calls, finding guys that we had relationships with to see if they were interested," Franklin said at a late afternoon news conference in Beaver Stadium.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - James Franklin pulled out all the stops when he welcomed his first recruits to Penn State. Wednesday was college football's national signing day, when high school players made their commitments official, and Franklin introduced the Nittany Lions' newest 25 players that evening at the Bryce Jordan Center. In front of a "whiteout" crowd, Franklin described each of Penn State's incoming freshmen for next season. Twenty players faxed in their signatures to the coaching staff that morning.

STATE COLLEGE - Troy Reeder committed to Penn State nearly a year ago, and the Salesianum product was dead set on playing his college ball in Happy Valley. But for Reeder and the rest of the Nittany Lions' 2014 recruiting class, there was a 2-week span from late December to early January where a sure thing saw its way out, and uncertainty swept in. From the time rumors of Bill O'Brien's eventual departure from Penn State swirled to the time James Franklin was introduced as his successor, oral commitments had to reconsider their future.

Albert Lord , the retired Sallie Mae CEO who loved Penn State so much he gave the Abington campus $5 million, has made the university his next career. He quickly raised enough alumni signatures last week to run for the university board. If elected, he plans a leading part. Like the Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship group, Lord blasts both the Freeh report - which blamed top Pennsylvania State University officials and the school's sports culture for failing to stop child rapes by ex-football assistant Jerry Sandusky - and the trustees he says too-quickly accepted Louis Freeh 's findings.
