It is difficult to believe now, but there was a time when early June was kind of a slow period in college football circles. With spring practice in the rearview mirror and fall camp more than a month away, there really was not a whole heck of a lot going on.

Not anymore. Especially not at Penn State.

The proliferation of summer prospect camps in June had already made it a month full of grinding for James Franklin and his staff. New NCAA rules that allow recruits to make official visits in the spring and summer have added to the hectic nature of the month.

Friday was a perfect example, as for the first time the Nittany Lions saw the confluence of a camp (the Elite I session) and the start of an official visit weekend. Even as a reporter, you had to have your head on a swivel to follow it all (as our own Sean Fitz did with his live updates).

So can you imagine what it was like for Franklin and company?

If not, don’t worry. We were there shooting it all, to give you a sense for just how crazy things were.

Three of this weekend’s eight official visitors — Texas four-star safety Lewis Cine, Michigan four-star linebacker Lance Dixon and Oregon four-star quarterback Michael Johnson Jr. — all got to Happy Valley before camp ended.

See how it all went down below.
