Skip to comments.Georgia State, Penn State to do camp together

Georgia State and Penn State have formed a unique partnership in the pursuit of football recruiting.
Incoming Penn State James Franklin and his staff will work as guest coaches for the Trent Miles Football Camp at Georgia State on June 10.
The arrangement appears a win-win for both programs. Penn State gets to evaluate high school players who would never travel to its camps in Pennsylvania while Georgia State gets exposure to more high-profile recruits than usual.

So, does Micheal Mann have anything to do with picking the Hockey Team?
GSU also put in a bid today to buy Turner Field from the city and turn it into a 30k seat football stadium + athletic complex.
As a PSU alum, I almost want to call this “bending of the rules”, but it’s on the up and up w/ the ncaa death panels.
Franklin is running circles around Urban right now in recruiting, and when you see innovative stuff like this, you see why.
I dont have my head around the concept??? Penn State gets to see, and presumably recruit, HS athletes at GSUs camp. GSU gets - what??? Does the presence of the PSU coach attract talent that PSU wont want but GSU does? If so, how/why??
PSU’s presence there will attract athletes that GSU wouldn’t normally attract. PSU gets to evaluate the top tier, GSU gets exposure and the table scraps.
Win, win for each team.
