James Franklin has style. 

The Penn State coach, who has quickly become one of the country's top recruiters, visited a Maryland high school today to recruit a prospect. 

The 42-year-old coach arrived at Franklin High School in Reisterstown, Md. in a helicopter.

Franklin High School has three high-major prospects in the 2015 class - four-star offensive tackle Pat Allen, three-star wide receiver Jordan Adams, and Jacquez Adams - but they're committed to Georgia (Allen) and West Virginia (both Adams). Perhaps Franklin is attempting to sway one of those three to Penn State. He could also be recruiting 2016 players.
