The elite recruit appeared to leak some contract news.
Did James Franklin recently sign a huge contract extension?
According to the media, no, he didn’t. They don’t know about one, anyway.
A top recruit apparently knows differently, though.
Solomon Enis, a four-star wide receiver in the 2018 class, appeared to reveal in a recruiting story that Franklin recently signed a five-year extension. Enis’ dad, Curtis, played at Penn State, so he definitely has some connections.
“Coach Franklin, Coach Gattis and Coach Moorhead, I mean, they’re just great guys and even better coaches and they’re going to put you in a position you can thrive in and they just treat you like my family,” Enis said at The Opening Finals at Nike World Headquarters. “They tell you straight up. They’re blunt with everything and you can trust them. Franklin signed a new five-year deal so he’s going to be there a minute while I’m there.“
There had been talk this offseason about Franklin signing some kind of extension, but we hadn’t heard about one.
Now we have, thanks to a recruit.
Penn State has yet to confirm.
