Franks commits to UCF
Jordan Franks is a Knight.Wide receiver
As expected, the big target from Crawfordville's Wakulla High School committed to UCF at the conclusion of his official visit.
"I chose UCF because of a great coaching staff," Franks said on Sunday morning. "They were straightforward with me, plus I loved the campus and the education it can bring me in my future."
As a senior, Franks caught 62 passes for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns. He earned Class 5A All-State second team honors and played in the FACA North-South All-Star game.
"Jordan had a fantastic senior year," Wakulla head coach Scott Klees said last week. "He's 6-3, 210 with tremendous upside. He's only going to get better and better. No one will outwork him. In four years he never missed a practice and that includes the summer and the season. He's the first one to the field and the last one to leave."
FAU and Air Force had also offered Franks, but he's solid with the Knights.
"His biggest aspect to me is his work ethic and then his hands are incredible," Klees said. "He had one dropped pass the entire year. Just look at his highlight film. Just remarkable catches he's able to make. His size is the next thing. He'll get down field making blocks, just pancaking kids along the way. Those are the biggest things. He's just a very athletic kid. I can't say enough good things about him."
Franks joins Chris Davis and Tre'Quan Smith as wide receiver commits in UCF's 2014 class.
