Race heats up for Franks

Tulsa (Okla.) Union cornerback Dominique Franks is quickly becoming a very hot commodity in Big 12 country.
He was holding five offers until today's mail came with another one from Kansas. The 6-foot, 180-pound Franks is also making his way around the spring game circuit taking in Oklahoma's last week and Kansas State's upcoming. His latest offer has him excited and looking for more.
"Yeah, it's really exciting right now," Franks said. "I don't know a ton about the Kansas football program, but I'm interested in learning more. There aren't any favorites for me. I'm just exploring what comes in for me and weighing my options."

Heading to the Kansas State spring finale, Franks admits that he will start comparing schools.
"Now that I've been to OU, I'll be looking for a lot of stuff at K-State along with the other visits I take," he said. "It's important for me to see how the players interact with the coaches and carry themselves on the field."
"I like to see if they are like brothers out there with no animosity towards each other."
Coaches from Nebraska and Texas A&M have been by the school to watch spring practice lately. Franks is also working the phones as well.
"Yeah I've talked to coaches from K-State lately, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and a bunch of others," he said.
Franks will wait until the summer to make any decisions on where he might be taking his official visits. The in-state visit to Oklahoma impressed him, but he is quick to say everybody is equally in this race.
He is not, however, ruling out making a commitment on a future visit.
"Sure, if I get to a school and I have a good feeling about it I could make up my mind right there," he said. "If it feels right, I'll go ahead and tell the coaches that's where I want to go."
"That could very possibly happen."
