James Franklin Subtweets 5-Star QB After His Decommitment

The Penn State head coach not-so-subtly responded to the recruiting blow on Twitter.

Penn State's football program suffered a crushing blow late Tuesday night.

Justin Fields, the No. 2 quarterback in the 2018 recruiting class, announced he was de-committing from the Nittany Lions' program.

The 6-foot-3, 221-pound prospect is ranked the No. 6 overall recruit in the '18 class and the No. 1 dual-threat QB. It's a huge loss for PSU's program.

Franklin can't comment publicly on recruits, but he sent out a not-so-subtle message on Twitter.

Basically: We're going to be fine.

Fields, meanwhile, is currently projected to land at Florida.
