Penn State coach James Franklin uses Twitter to check study habits

Monday January 26th, 2015

It's hard for college athletes to separate their lives on the court or field from their lives as students. As Penn State sophomore cornerback Bryant Harper found out on Monday, not even his online life is safe from supervision from the Penn State coaching staff.

Classes in State College, PA, are well underway, and Harper has already gotten results back from his first exams. While he was satisfied with the results, Nittany Lions coach James Franklin was quick to remind him that excellence is a full-time pursuit.

No doubt Harper will invest more time in his preparations for the next test. Or, at the very least, be more careful about how he discusses it on twitter.
