Penn State missed on a chance for the Big Ten title again this season, but the football program hasn’t been out of the news.
The Nittany Lions inked head coach James Franklin to a contract extension that ties him to the team through 2025. One of the things Franklin does well is recruit. He consistently grabs the top talent from the state of Pennsylvania and has a knack for recruiting Virginia and New Jersey well also.
His recruiting prowess landed a commitment from three-star corner Joseph Johnson.
Johnson, a Virginia native, is one of the top corner recruits in the country and he showed why earlier this week. He took to Twitter with a video showcasing his athleticism.

Johnson is the No. 32 corner in the class and the No. 10 player in the state of Virginia for the 2020 recruiting cycle. He held off from the likes of Florida, Indiana, Ohio State, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas A&M before committing to James Franklin and company on July 2.
Penn State owns the No. 3 recruiting class in the Big Ten and the No. 15 class in the nation.
