Video: Franklin looks back at signing day at Penn State

When James Franklin was at Vanderbilt, he helped blaze the trail of bringing the all access look inside of the war room on signing day into the mainstream. Now programs, big and small, across the country have jumped on board doing the same.

Franklin's first look at signing day in Happy Valley brings a little different vantage point, opting to take a look back on the monumental occasion for the staff and the recruits with commentary from everyone ranging from the assistant coaches, to past players, to the equipment manager, regarding the buzz surrounding the program.

One cool idea that the staff implemented this year, that we hadn't seen in other signing day videos, is utilizing FaceTime with the recruits so that they're able to see the excitement in the war room immediately after the fax comes through. Imagine sending that fax as a recruit, and getting a video call from coach Franklin with the room behind him going bonkers. That's got to be a special feeling.

This one is very good.
