Penn State Football: Lloyd Tubman Reopens Recruitment As Signing Day Closes In
One of the first recruits to commit following the hiring of new head coach James Franklin is having second thoughts according to the the Louisville Courier-Journal.
Lloyd Tubman, a four-star defensive end out of Kentucky, will re-open his recruitment and plans to announce where he will take his talents during National Signing Day on Wednesday, according to The Louisville Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones.
Penn State's recruiting class has grown in the first two weeks of the Franklin era, but after losing five star defensive tackle Thomas Holley, Franklin and his staff have been looking for a replacement at that position. The Nittany Lions are bringing in three additional recruits at the defensive line position but none may have the talent early in their career to replace NFL bound defensive tackle DaQuan Jones.
While Penn State has limited scholarships to work with -- over the next 48-72 hours, anything is possible in the ever-changing world of recruiting.
Even with the loss of Tubman, Penn State still ranks in the Top 25 nationally with a strong 2014 recruiting class. Penn State can only carry 75 scholarship players next season under NCAA sanctions.
