When asked about favorites in the past, Tulsa (Okla.) Union cornerback Dominique Franks has always been real clear about who he would love to have an offer from – the Miami Hurricanes. With numerous others in hand and official visits in the works, Franks is just trying to keep his hectic recruiting process and life under control.
Though Miami has yet to offer, Franks has always named them as one of his top teams along with Tennessee. With an offer, many expected him to pull the trigger right away. However, an official was set to Texas Tech until he changed his plans.
"I was going to go to Texas Tech this weekend, but I have some family issues so there has been a change of plans," Franks said. "I haven't set up any others yet. I'll take a Miami visit in October some time and I want to go to Tennessee pretty soon as well."
The Hurricanes are still mulling over whether or not to offer Franks.
"Miami hasn't yet," Franks said about an offer from the Hurricanes. "They're going to check my grades and hopefully after that we'll see something."
Franks is also happy with his performance on the field which is bringing more attention to the 5-foot-11, 178-pound defender. So far, it's going about as good as any pass defender could ask for.
"The schools out here are throwing the ball my way, so I've been getting a lot of picks through our first four games," Franks said. "I've got five and I had three others that were called back. I'm having a great season, so it's no telling what will happen with recruiting if this keeps up."
The voice mail message on Franks' cell phone said that he was eliminating some things from his life considering how hectic everything has gotten for the high school student.
"People are starting to come at me more and I tell them on the voice mail that if I don't call me back, they'll get the hint," Franks said. "I've got to stay focused, so that's why I've been staying low key. You know at some point this can all get overwhelming."
