Three-Star Linebacker Brailyn Franklin Commits To Penn State

Penn State added another Franklin Tuesday, as three-star 2017 linebacker Brailyn Franklin committed to the Nittany Lions over Virginia Tech, Maryland, Syracuse, and Temple.

The Haymarket, Va., native earned an offer in June and started trending to the Nittany Lions following a successful Lasch Bash visit a few weeks ago. Franklin becomes the fifth recruit to commit to Penn State following the annual barbecue, following in the footsteps of Brelin Faison-Walden, Jonathan Sutherland, Derrek Pitts, and Cameron-Sullivan Brown.

Franklin, who checks in at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, is considered the nation’s 61st-overall athlete and the 25th-ranked prospect from Virginia this cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite. Defensive coordinator Brent Pry sees Franklin as an outside linebacker in Penn State’s 4-3 scheme. Franklin joins Faison-Walden and long-time verbal Dylan Rivers as the future of Linebacker U. Franklin has the size and speed to grow into a terrifying presence at the field linebacker spot.

With Franklin in the fold, the Nittany Lions currently hold 13 commitments in their Class of 2017, which enjoyed a boost into the Top 25 of the 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings following the recent surge of good news on the trail.

Welcome to Penn State, Brailyn!
