QB Franks out at Florida, picks NFL or move
Quarterback Feleipe Franks declared on his Instagram account Sunday that he won’t come back to the Florida Gators next season.Instead, Franks said he intends to investigate his alternatives of entering the NFL draft or moving and playing his last season at another school. Franks, who might be a redshirt junior next season, expressed gratitude toward the Florida mentors, directors, players and fans.”My heart will consistently be a piece of the Gator family,” Franks composed, including that “everyone inside the football office has consistently had my back regardless.” Franks opened this season as Florida’s beginning quarterback, yet endured a disjoined lower leg that remembered a break for the third game against Kentucky and missed the rest of the period. He was supplanted by Kyle Trask, who finished the season as the Gators’ beginning quarterback.In two years under mentor Dan Mullen, Franks went for 3,155 yards with 29 touchdowns and nine captures while finishing 61.5% of his passes. Franks endured a rough redshirt first year recruit season in 2017 that set off some awful online life reaction from fans. He landed at Florida in 2016 as an ESPN 300 prospect and positioned as the No. 5 pocket passer in the nation.
