Penn State Football: Brailyn Franklin No Longer with Nittany Lions

on August 04, 2018 6:06 PM

Redshirt freshman Brailyn Franklin was not listed on Penn State’s preseason roster that was distributed at Media Day Saturday.

The former three-star recruit from Virginia doubled as a linebacker and as a defensive end during his redshirt year. In spite of Penn State’s youth on defense this season, Franklin’s role was uncertain after he didn’t receive any playing time during the Blue-White Game this spring.

He has yet to specify where he will continue his career but tweeted a cryptic message about his future earlier in the week.

 

 

Prior to that, he retweeted a tweet from Sam Houston State about its upcoming season. 247 Sports' Leader Johnson tweeted on Saturday afternoon that Sam Houston, an FCS program, wants Franklin to start playing immediately.

 

Although Coach James Franklin started out August by losing one member of his defense, he still comes out ahead after gaining a key cog with the return of Manny Bowen, a two-year starter who was  dismissed from the team shortly before the Fiesta Bowl last year.
