Sam Pittman explains why addition of QB Feleipe Franks is so important heading into 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, spring football practices were either cut short our canceled outright for teams across the college football landscape.
As teams prepare for the upcoming 2020 season, nothing is normal, so coaches are having to adjust on the fly. That affects a program like Arkansas (and many others) more because the Razorbacks have a new coach in Sam Pittman and a new quarterback in Florida graduate transfer Feleipe Franks.
On “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Monday, Pittman did say that he is glad Franks has SEC experience, which is making this unique offseason a bit easier:
Arkansas' @CoachSamPittman on the importance of adding Florida transfer QB Feleipe Franks. “Without spring practice, to get a guy who has competed at a high level in the SEC is very beneficial for us, not just for his talent, but his leadership capabilities.”

Before getting injured in 2019, Franks appeared in all 13 games for the Gators in 2018, throwing for 2,457 yards, 24 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
Can he help the Hogs improve from their 2-10 overall record last year? We’ll find out this fall!
