Recruit Spills The Beans On James Franklin’s Rumored Contract Extension

It looks like four-star prospect Solomon Enis may have spilled the beans on James Franklin’s long-rumored, yet unconfirmed extension. He’s currently under contract at Penn State through the 2019 season.

Enis, the son of Nittany Lions great Curtis Enis, is strongly considering attending the same college as his star running back father. The 2018 receiver out of Phoenix gave PennLive’s Daniel Gallen the following quote Friday at Nike’s The Opening in Beaverton, Ore., on the program’s coaching staff.

“They tell you straight up. They’re blunt with everything and you can trust them,” Enis said. “Franklin signed a new five-year deal so he’s going to be there a minute while I’m there.”

That last part is where it gets interesting. Penn State AD Sandy Barbour told fans to “stay tuned” for the announcement of a contract extension at the university’s York stop of the Coaches Caravan in early May, but hasn’t release an update on the matter since.

If the rumor proves true in the coming days, it means the 45-year-old Franklin would be sticking around in State College through at least 2024. With a Big Ten championship in his back pocket and expectations for the coming season at a fever pitch, the Nittany Lion faithful would surely approve of a new deal for their charismatic coach.
