El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. four-star receiver Frantz Hardy is ranked as one of the top 10 junior college players, and he proved once again this past weekend with three major catches for 57 yards in the Jayhawk Conference championship game against rival Coffeyville C.C.
“I tried my best to get open, but they had two or three guys on me on every play,” Hardy, who is 6-foot and 170 pounds, said. “It allowed us to open up the running game some, and we won the game. So I guess in a way I did my part, even though I didn’t burn them like I did last time.”
Earlier in the season, Hardy scorched the Ravens with several long touchdown receptions and a few critical catches in Butler’s last minute rally to victory.
Now with the playoffs and only the national championship game left on the schedule, Hardy will check out national title contender Auburn this weekend on an official visit.
“I’m leaving Friday,” Hardy said. “I’m flying out of Wichita on Delta. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be a great game. I’m excited about my first visit.”
Hardy said don’t expect him to make a commitment, though.
“I’m trying to take all five,” he said. “I’m not leaning anywhere, and I don’t have a top school. I want to find the school with the right fit. To me, it’s going to be how comfortable I feel at the school.”
Hardy does not have any other visit dates scheduled, but he did say that South Carolina, Iowa and Florida State will get visits along with Auburn. Florida State is new to the mix, he said.
“They just offered me the other day,” he said.
Hardy also has offers from Iowa, South Carolina, Nebraska and Texas A&M to go along with FSU and Auburn’s offers.
