To put it mildly, James Franklin has Penn State rolling on the recruiting trail. Not only do the Nittany Lions currently have the No. 5 ranked class in 2015 according to RecruitingNation, but they are off and running in 2016 as well. On Wednesday, Penn State picked up a second ESPN Jr300, and it’s a big one -- No. 30 Shane Simmons.
