Kansas football’s biggest target this offseason, former Florida Gator Feleipe Franks, is nearing a decision on where to finish his college career.
Feleipe Franks, a former starter at the University of Florida, is about to make his decision on where to play his final year of college ball according to Pig Trail Nation. Kansas football is still very much in the mix to land the coveted transfer, but a new school has joined the pursuit late in the game.

Franks completed a visit to Arkansas yesterday and met with the top brass at the football program. The visit has quite a few folks believing he’ll ultimately choose the Razorbacks, as 247 Sports’ Crystal Ball is now 100 percent on Arkansas according to three experts. Franks seemed to enjoy his time in Fayetteville, saying: “It was a good visit.”
Arkansas isn’t the only school Franks has visited recently though or shown interest in. Back in December, he made a visit to Kansas and Franks also follows both head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon on Twitter, for whatever that’s worth.

Miles and Franks also have a relationship that began when he was originally being recruited out of high school. Franks verbally committed to Miles and the LSU Tigers, before having a change of heart and enrolling at Florida.
On his timeline to making a decision, Franks said during his visit that he’d be making a decision “(in) the next two days,” which makes sense. He’s waited until the last moment to make his choice, given that classes are already starting or about to start at most colleges. The University of Kansas will begin the Spring 2020 semester tomorrow, January 21.

This is a saga that began all the way back and December, and now it seems to finally be coming to an end. Whichever way it goes, the fallout for Kansas football will be substantial. Either they’ll get an SEC-caliber quarterback, or they’ll have to work with what they have. I’d personally prefer the former.
