Franklins recruitment winding down

Vero Beach (Fla.) safety Larry Franklin is a Sunshine State prospect being recruited by schools all around the nation. On Monday, Vero Beach assistant coach Pete DeLuke talked a bit about the latest with regards to the three-star safety.
"He has visited Michigan State, Northern Illinois two weeks ago, and this past weekend he went to Western Michigan. This weekend coming up he is going to go to Vanderbilt for a visit," DeLuke said. "Right now those are the top choices."
At this point, DeLuke said that the 6-foot, 185-pound prospect hasn't informed him or the other coaches on the staff of a clear leader.
"I think he is still trying to figure it all out," DeLuke said. "He seemed very interested in Vanderbilt. He loved Michigan State when he went up there. I haven't really talked to him about the Western Michigan visit but he loves their coaches and we already have a player up there. He really seems interested in all four of those schools."
As for a final decision, it is likely to come on a week from Wednesday.
"I think he is going to make a National Signing Day decision," DeLuke said.
As a senior, Franklin recorded over 80 tackles including five tackles for loss. He also had two interceptions.
