2020 Has been a big challenge on the recruiting front. Prospective players cannot make visits due to covid causing many departments to adjust. And head coach James Franklin says his guys have been doing all they can to get the best to come to Happy Valley.
“Its unusual and the recruiting staff has had to be very creative in finding different ways to connect and attract the best student athletes that we can possible get. A lot of it was Zoom. A lot of it was FaceTime. A lot of it was videos that we tried to do to be creative and be different.”
Penn State is 19-5 all time versus the Illini.
