Former Florida QB Feleipe Franks discusses Arkansas visit, decision timeframe
Former Florida QB Feleipe Franks may be on the verge of officially joining Arkansas, but it’s not quite official yet.
Pig Trail Nation reported on Franks’ recent visit to Fayetteville, and when he expects to make a decision about his football future. Franks said he expects to make a decision in the next two days.
One key factor in his decision is how he feels about Kendal Briles, the offensive coordinator.
“That’s what I came down here for,” Franks said. “Not really flashy, this that and the other, but just to talk ball, so I liked it.”
Franks has also been linked to Kansas as a potential landing spot.
The 6-foot-6, 238-pound Franks was the Gators’ starter for all 13 games in 2018, when he passed for 2,457 yards with 24 touchdowns and six interceptions. He passed for 698 yards and six touchdowns this season before he suffered a dislocated ankle early in the 2019 season against Kentucky.
In 2019, Franks completed 76 percent of his passes for 698 yards in three games for five touchdowns and three interceptions.
Arkansas coach Sam Pittman said he would be willing to use the transfer portal to bolster the roster if needed. The Razorbacks currently have just three scholarship quarterbacks in Jack Lindsey, John Stephen Jones and KJ Jefferson.
