Franklin open to all

TAMPA, Fla. - Plantation (Fla.) South Plantation two-star dual-threat quarterback John Franklin isn't ready to narrow down his list of options just yet.
"Everybody is even to me right now," Franklin said. "I am not rushing anything, trying to commit early. I am just going to see what everybody has to offer and taking it day-by-day letting everything progress."
Franklin's offer list includes Air Force, Bowling Green, Florida International, Georgia State, Navy, Samford, Temple, and Western Kentucky. He also reports interest from Florida State, Missouri, South Florida, UCF, and Wisconsin.
This summer, the 6-foot-1, 168-pound athlete has visited Florida International , Florida State, and South Florida.
His most recent visit was to USF for the Sling and Shoot event this past weekend. That visit marked his third time on-campus in Tampa.
"Coming in Coach (Larry) Scott and Coach (Todd) Fitch have been saying that they have been looking for another quarterback and they have been waiting all summer for me to come up here," Franklin said. "They just said they are going to get back to me soon (about an offer)."
Earlier this summer Franklin had the opportunity to check out FIU. The Golden Panthers are a local program that has already extended an offer.
"It was pretty good hanging out with Coach (Mario) Cristobal and throwing around with Coach (Tim) Cramsey getting a little bit of coaching," Franklin said. "It was pretty fun. I took some of my teammates with me so we all got a good experience out of it."
At Florida State, where Franklin visited last week, he worked at both quarterback and wide receiver for the Seminoles.
As for upcoming visits, the South Florida prospect is hoping to check out a couple out-of-state schools in the coming weeks and months.
"I want to try to get to Wisconsin because they are a big school that have been recruiting me heavily," Franklin said. "I want to try to take a trip up to Temple. Depending on who else offers, I will make that decision at that time."
Franklin, who wants to play quarterback in college, isn't working with a specific timeline for making a decision at this time.
