James Franklin: Dominate the Post Office

Everyone knows by now that James Franklin is a recruiting nut. He may also be single-handedly keeping the USPS in business.

Earlier this month, a number of 2016 recruiting targets starting Tweeting pictures of their mailboxes overloaded with mail from the Penn State football staff. The reason? Franklin decided to send 107 pieces of mail to recruits, consistent with his #107KStrong mantra to get Beaver Stadium at capacity, which included 107 reasons why they should come to Penn State, each individually numbered on the envelope.


I haven’t seen any Tweets about what’s inside the letters, but hopefully they used some of these reasons. Penn State currently has a two-member 2016 class.
