Betiku Inching Closer To A Decision

Gardena (Calif.) Junipero Serra five-star defensive end Oluwole Betiku could be one more official visit from knowing where he will end up playing ball at the next level.

The 6-4, 240-pounder spoke to 247Sports national analyst Ryan Bartow to share the latest on his recruitment.

Following official visits to Florida State and Texas A&M, the Under Armour All-American will visit Notre Dame this weekend.

“I just want to see the game environment, meet the coaches, see the academic staff,” said Betiku about the Irish. “I know they are one of the best schools and they are independent and all the games are on national television and they have great exposure for you. It’s a Catholic school. You can get a lot of opportunities being a Notre Dame grad.”

Betiku will arrive early Saturday morning, following a redeye flight that takes off shortly after midnight.

The f!ghting Irish are playing catch-up at this point. Betiku made it clear that two schools are slightly ahead of the pack, but a few others are right their in the mix.

“Texas A&M has a little edge. Florida State has a little edge,” Betiku told Bartow. “I haven’t been to Notre Dame yet. USC and Florida are there. I still talk to UCLA and Angus [McClure] too.”

Betiku spoke about a few of his top schools.

“The facilities were awesome,” said Betiku of Florida State. “The game day, the fans, the Nole fans, the Nole chant, it was awesome. The coaching staff is full of great people. They look out for their players and it’s all about Florida State over there in Tallahassee.”

“The scheme they run with Coach Chavis,” said Betiku regarding his interest in Texas A&M. “They use their edge guys a lot to get to the quarterback. Coach Price is an awesome defensive line coach. The game day environment and the school itself is just great and they have good support of their team. It’s a beautiful college town.

“I just wanted to get a second feel because if you have a school in your mind that you like, you don’t want to make a decision based on one visit,” he added regarding why he took an additional unofficial visit to see the Aggies. “That second visit was necessary so that I can understand how I feel about the program.”

USC was considered the favorite early in his recruitment, but fell down his list. However, recently, the Trojans started making a move and became a genuine player for Betiku’s services.

“They’re probably going to keep Coach Clay,” said Betiku of USC. “He’s been is doing a good job with the team. All the players like him. The recruits like him. He’s a good man. I met with him as a person. We talked way beyond just football. He’s a very interesting man, who loves his players. He really wants this job.”

Another school that is under consideration is Florida. Betiku admits that it’s a trip he’s trying to take.

“I’d like to visit,” said Betiku. “I was talking to Coach Rumph, he said they were up to something special this year. He’s a good defensive line coach. He’s developed a lot of good defensive line players. Gainesville is a great, great football place. I just want to see what it’s like and if it’s somewhere I want to be for the next four or five years.”

Following this weekend’s official visit to Notre Dame, Betiku is considering additional visits to Florida, Arizona State and USC.

Regarding a timeline for a decision, that is still up in the air. It could come at the Under Armour All-American Game or closer to Signing Day. That is yet to be determined.

“If I get cleared by the clearinghouse to enroll early in January, then I might just make a decision at the Under Armour All-American Game and then enroll right after that,” said Betiku.”

Betiku has seen his stock skyrocket over the past 12 months. Still raw in some areas, his ceiling is through the roof and 247Sports has high hopes for him at the next level and well beyond that.

“I’m honored,” said Betiku of his five-star status. “It just makes me feel good from the hard work. Nothing can substitute hard work. When I came, all I did was work hard and kept working. I went from an unknown to a five-star and it just makes me working hard.”

Per 247Sports, Betiku is the No. 6 overall player in the country, No. 1 weak-side defensive end in the nation and No. 1 prospect in California from the class of 2016.

Insider notes on Feleipe Franks' latest UF visit

The Florida Gators were able to get Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla Top247 quarterback Feleipe Franks on campus for the second straight home game Saturday afternoon. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound LSU commit stayed on campus later than most unofficial visitors to spend more time with the Gators coaching staff. All reports coming out of Gainesville indicate the Gators are feeling good about their progress in Franks' recruitment.

Franks has maintained regular contact with the LSU staff since his surprise trip to Gainesville three weeks ago. While LSU did not know of that trip beforehand, they were informed of his latest prior to showing on Florida's campus. The LSU pledge is expected back in Gainesville next weekend for the Florida State game, which is slated to be an unofficial visit currently.

If next Saturday is an unofficial visit, that leaves one weekend left for the Gators to get an official visit from the early enrollee with Florida set to play in the SEC Championship Game in two weeks – December 11. Florida is trying to bump LSU out of that final weekend before the dead period starts. The Tigers have long expected Franks to use his official that weekend. Franks and his high school team are currently in the midsts of a playoff run that very well could take them to the state finals in Orlando on December 11. Which campus Franks decides to visit after walking out of the Citrus Bowl that evening could be high drama.

Working in Florida's favor is the chatter of head coach Les Miles being let go at LSU. The noise in the system can be tough to overcome on the recruiting trail, as Gator fans are well aware following Will Muschamp's last two seasons at UF. Even if Miles survives, Franks' two lead recruiters, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and area recruiter Bradley Dale Peveto, are very much on the chopping block this offseason.

Florida has now taking the lead on the 247Sports Crystal Ball for the nation's No. 45 overall prospect in the 2016 class.

Where will Feleipe Franks commit to?

33% - LSU
25% - FSU

Craig-Myers eyeing QB situations, early playing time

OCALA, Fla. -- Four-star receiver Nate Craig-Myers is one of the top receivers on Florida's board in the 2016 recruiting class, and the Gators appear to be in decent shape to land him.

Craig-Myers has watched Florida's progress under first-year coach Jim McElwain closely this fall, spending two Saturdays in the Swamp already. He'll visit again next weekend for the team's home finale against Florida State.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound receiver maintains that he has no leaders right now, though Florida and Florida State are widely considered the favorites.

Both have things that appeal to Craig-Myers, most notably offensive coaches who know how to get the most out of their players.

"Florida, they have coach (Jim) McElwain, he's an offensive guy," Craig-Myers said Friday night. "He coached Julio (Jones), had Rashard Higgins at Colorado State. He's making Antonio Callaway a hell of a receiver. I just see he's getting great production with his receivers, and that's what I really like about him."

Callaway's early production, in particular, has impressed Craig-Myers. The South Florida star has racked up 541 receiving yards this season, the second-most for a true freshman in school history.

Craig-Myers hopes to have a similar impact in 2016 wherever he ends up.

"I just want to go in and make a name for myself," he said. "I've got to start all over now, little fish in a big pond. I just feel like I'll go in there and make a name for myself and then everything else will work out."

McElwain has pitched him on that and the appeal of doing it in a place like Gainesville.

"He told me come play in your home state, be a hometown hero," Craig-Myers said. "There's no better place to do it at than the Gators."

After Florida quarterback Will Grier had his appeal to have an NCAA suspension for the first six games of 2016 reduced denied, the Gators' quarterback situation for the beginning of Craig-Myers career became a bit murkier.

Will that be a factor?

"That's the big thing that I'm looking at, because I always want to have a quarterback wherever I go the next few years," Craig-Myers said. "I think they're trying to find a quarterback now, put a good class together."

But Craig-Myers didn't seem overly concerned by the question mark at quarterback. Both of his lead contenders have one.

"Florida State, they still have a little knack to fix right there, but I feel like Malik Henry, he's coming in 2016 class and he'll definitely be the top guy," he said. "Florida, I see Jake Allen coming in 2017. I think he'll have a shot at the starting position, and hopefully Will Grier will get back."

There have also been rumblings that Florida taking a big class of receivers could sway Craig-Myers away from the Gators. That's an area the rival Seminoles have apparently made a point of emphasis in their pitch.

"Just that I'm the top priority. They're only taking one receiver, and I'm their guy," said Craig-Myers, asked what Jimbo Fisher was selling him on.

If Florida takes a big class at receiver?

"It doesn't matter to me because I'm very competitive," Craig-Myers said. "Wherever I go there's going to be guys in front of me that I've got to go out there and compete with."

Where do the Seminoles stand for the explosive playmaker?

"They're still trying to work out the quarterback situation, but they have playmakers," the Tampa Catholic star said. "I just want to see more from the receivers.

"I like the way coach Fisher makes playmakers get the ball. He's just really creative with the playbook."

There's no question though that Florida has caught the eye of the Under Armour All-American. A 10-1 start certainly hasn't hurt.

"Oh yeah, no doubt," Craig-Myers said. "Florida, they were always the top dog. Seeing them down a couple years, you're seeing them back to their regular self. It's really opened my eyes a lot."

Craig-Myers said he doesn't have any visits currently planned other than Florida for the game next weekend. He said he will likely visit Auburn in January.

He plans to make a national signing day decision.

"I'm just taking it one step at a time," he said. "Really no schools lead. Just talking to a lot of schools and just giving every school a chance."

Craig-Myers ranks as the No. 35 player in the country in the 247Composite, an industry-generated recruiting ranking. He checks in as the No. 3 receiver in the country and the No. 7 overall player in the state of Florida in the 2016 recruiting class.

Fisher: No comment on LSU

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was asked about the possibility of LSU coach Les Miles being dismissed and Fisher then becoming a potential candidate.

"I have no comment on that," Fisher said. "I have a policy: I don't speak about jobs. That's unfair to the players that are there, the players that are here. The coaches there and here. And there is no job opening."

Fisher was LSU's quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator from 2000-06, first under Nick Saban and then under Miles. He left LSU for FSU in 2007 as offensive coordinator and was later named head-coach-in-waiting before he took over for Bobby Bowden in January 2010.

Now in his sixth year as FSU's head coach, where he has won a national title and three ACC titles. He has a 67-13 record (83.8 winning percentage) since he took over as FSU's head coach before the 2010 season. Among wins in the FBS since 2010, Fisher trails only Saban's 68 victories at Alabama.

The 50-year-old Fisher has a long-term contract with FSU through the 2022 season that also features a $5 million buyout through Dec. 31, 2016.

Fisher said Monday that he understands the topic will come up, and will be something that recruits will ask him.

"When somebody asks you in recruiting, to me I look at it as a positive," Fisher said. "That means we’re doing things right here. That means people like what we’re doing. They’re encouraged by what we’re doing, they think we have the right folks.

"And then you ask the recruit, those other schools recruiting you, ‘Nobody wants their coach?’ Maybe somebody wants you, maybe you’re coming to a good place when you come here. ... I’m always straight up and honest but I’m never going to be disrespectful to anybody."

Fisher also commented that Syracuse's Scott Shafer had been dismissed earlier in the day, bringing the total to 13 openings in the Football Bowl Subdivision (nine of them at Power 5 schools). And he said "it's the nature of the business" for schools to not have patience with college football coaches.

"I've never seen a year like this year," Fisher said. "There are so many jobs and situations out there."

Fisher updates Hoskins' status on Monday

Florida State redshirt sophomore linebacker Ro'Derrick Hoskins left Saturday's game with a knee injury.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher spoke on his status during his Monday press conference.

"Much better than we thought," Fisher said. "That door is still open. He may sit out today, but he is walking around on his on his own. He is moving around a lot better. Very excited about that."

Fisher added that Hoskins would likely miss practice on Monday.

Hoskins has appeared in 11 games and started six. He is tied for third on the team with 52 tackles (31 solo), 6.5 tackles for loss, and two passes defended.

I don't think he would leave just my opinion (or atleast if I was him, I wouldn't (no shade thrown at LSU's way cause I actually like LSU). FSU is paying him $5 mill a yr unless LSU antis up and pay near Saban's numbers. And I don't see that with them having to pay $15-20 mill for a buyout for Miles. And honestly I know LSU is an SEC job but why would you go there and struggle and be on the hot seat if you can't beat Bama when you already in a Power 5 conference at a school where with your recruiting are competing with the likes of the SEC West Powerhouses (classes in the top 5 every year), winning conference titles every year & already played in National Championship and won and played in the playoffs last yr and if they win Saturday they are talking New Years Six Bowl for us. You got the facilities and some of the best in the country, a school that will do whatever you want, so in the end I think he will stay.

Heisman Conversation Update: Cook by the Numbers (Interesting Read)

Alabama’s Derrick Henry is the man of the hour when it comes to the Heisman Trophy conversation. Florida State’s Dalvin Cook has also been brought up but not nearly as much as Henry or even Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey.

After Saturday’s performances, Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliot should be out of the top five contenders while McCaffery is moving up.

Henry had 68 yards on 9 carries with two touchdowns on Saturday. Cook had 106 yards on 15 carries with two touchdowns. McCaffrey ran for 192 yards on 29 carries and zero touchdowns.

Here is a look at Cook by the numbers.

Number of Games Played:
Cook- 10
Henry-11
McCaffrey- 11
*Cook made only two attempts during Florida State’s game against Wake Forest. Cook also left early for multiple games this year.

Rush Attempts:
Cook-185
Henry- 249
McCaffrey- 260

Rushing Yards:
Cook-1475 yds.
Henry-1526 yds.
McCaffrey- 1546 yds.

Average Yards Per Carry:
Cook- 8.0
Henry- 6.1
McCaffrey- 5.9

Receiving Yards:
Cook- 207 yds.
Henry- 97 yds.
McCaffrey- 416 yds.

Total Yards:
Cook- 1682 yds.
Henry-1623 yds.
McCaffrey- 1962 yds.

Longest Run:
Cook- 94 yds.
Henry- 74 yds.
McCaffrey- 70 yds.

Statistics from ESPN.com

As if the numbers didn’t speak for themselves, remember that Cook has been battling a lingering Hamstring injury and ankle issue this season. If Cook had the same number of attempts as Henry, the Seminole would total 1,992 rushing yards. If the ‘Nole had the same number as McCaffrey, he would total 2080.

The fact that Henry has only 51 more rushing yards than Cook on 64 more attempts is a staggering statistic. McCaffrey has decent stats but it is important to pay attention to the strength of the opponent’s defense. For example, FSU has played two of the top ten total defenses (Boston College and Clemson) while Stanford hasn’t played any top ten defenses.

Cook is a dynamic player with long runs and multiple receiving plays. He is more efficient in yards per carry than every other Heisman running back contender.

The award has gone to quarterbacks for the past five years and the honor is often awarded to the best player on a top-5 team. However to keep up with the trophy’s prestige, the Heisman should be awarded to the best player. Period.

Feleipe Franks: Where Things Stand

With Florida four-star quarterback Feleipe Franks set to enroll early in college this January, all eyes are on the LSU commitment as he navigates through the end of his recruitment process. Will he stick with the Tigers or go elsewhere? We take a closer look at where things stand.

Feleipe Franks


No. 5 Pro-Style QB, No. 7 prospect in Florida, No. 37 in the country

Commitment Status: LSU commitment (6/1/2014)

Biggest Competition: Florida and Florida State

2016 QB Depth Charts:

LSU … Anthony Jennings - Sr.
Brandon Harris - Jr.
Danny Etling - Jr.
Justin McMillan - RS Fr.

Florida … Treon Harris - Jr.
Luke Del Rio - RS Jr.
Will Grier - RS So. (6-game suspension)
Kyle Trask - Fr.

FSU … Sean Maguire - Sr.
J.J. Cosentino - So.
Deondre Francois - RS Fr.
Malik Henry - Fr.

Recent Timeline: Franks spent some extended time in Baton Rouge for LSU’s football camp this summer, then made a couple trips to Baton Rouge for games across the opening stretch of the 2015 season. On Oct. 10, Franks made his first visit elsewhere, making an unofficial visit to Florida State to watch the Seminoles in a 29-24 win over Miami. The following weekend, Franks and his parents made the drive to Baton Rouge to watch LSU in a 35-28 win over Florida. Then, Franks made his first visit to Gainesville since 2013, making an unofficial visit to The Swamp on Nov. 7 to watch the Gators secure the SEC East title with a 9-7 win over Vanderbilt. The Gators were on the road the following week, but when UF returned to Gainesville this past weekend, Franks was there again, making a second unofficial visit to see Florida get an overtime win over Florida Atlantic.

What’s Next: Franks and Wakulla High are still in the state playoffs, which means his Friday nights will be booked until further notice. The state title game is held on Friday, Dec. 11, which would also be the final weekend that Franks could make any college visits before the dead period sets in and coaches can no longer meet face-to-face with recruits. That being said, Franks has confirmed with numerous outlets that he plans to make another visit to Florida this weekend as the Gators are set to host Florida State. It’s unclear at this point whether or not the Nov. 28 visit is an official visit or unofficial visit, but sources have confirmed that the Gators are pressing for a third-straight unofficial visit, meaning they would still be in the mix for an official visit from Franks in December. If Franks does not make an official visit to Florida this weekend, there would only be one other weekend available for Franks and his family to make an official visit to Gainesville: Dec. 11-13. Franks is currently scheduled to travel to LSU for his official visit that weekend (again, the final weekend before the dead period sets in), but the visit could be rescheduled to fit Florida into that weekend, instead. Reason being, the Gators won’t be able to host Franks and his family on an official visit the weekend after the regular season ends (Dec. 4-6) because Florida will be playing in the SEC Championship game. We could see Franks move his LSU visit up to Dec. 4-6, then visit another school - presumably the Gators - on Dec. 11-13. If that swap is made, we feel it would be very telling, and a flip would likely be imminent. But as of late Sunday night, a source confirmed with the Geaux247 staff that Franks’ official visit to LSU was still on for Dec. 11-13. Franks is scheduled to enroll at the college of his choice in January following his appearance in this year’s Army All-American Bowl.

What Franks said: Following his first-round playoff win earlier this month, Franks caught up with 247Sports and shared the following thoughts on his recruitment and the three teams still in the mix.

"I am taking it day by day, talking about official visits or just an official visit. I don’t even know yet. I’m just talking to my parents about when we can get free, because my dad has a lot of military duty coming up. I’m just trying to get a weekend where we can get all of us down there.”

"I honestly look at it the same way with everyone. How the team responds, how I get along with teammates and how the academics are at the school. It’s not really about the necessity for a quarterback. And that’s kind of weird coming from a quarterback. But I am looking more at the little things, like do I get along with the players and coaches and things like that.”

"I’m going to just check out the atmospheres. LSU has a great atmosphere. I am just going to watch games until I can’t anymore, when I couldn’t go watch a Florida game or an LSU game - that sort of thing. I am just enjoying it while I can."

"Like I have always said and my parents have always said, it didn’t matter how far or close the school is. I am just going to look at the little things. It doesn’t really matter to me in-state or out-of-state. I am going to go where I love, and my parents will support that. That’s all I need is my parents support and my family. It’s my decision, obviously.”

"After the Army game (I will enroll in a college). Like I said, I am still committed to LSU. But sometime in December (I will know a final decision). I wouldn’t really say it would take something significant (to change my mind). It’s not like I can say this or this has to happen. I just have to fall in love with the school. My heart would have to tell me to go there.”

What 247 Says:

Luke Stampini … UF Insider: "There has long been chatter about Franks secretly considering the Florida Gators under the new coaching staff, but we could never find any concrete info to back that buzz. When Jim McElwain’s first visit of the bye week was to the LSU commit’s school, it was a sign that Florida felt better about their chances than what Franks was giving away publicly. Ultimately, that surprise visit to Gainesville for the Vanderbilt game was enough to get me to put in a ‘flip’ prediction on the 247Sports Crystal Ball. I feel more confident with that pick after hearing that confidence on Florida’s side continues to grow following Franks’ latest trip to Gainesville."

Josh Newberg … FSU Insider: "I think Franks has been trending heavily toward UF over the past three or four weeks. Florida State has also been involved. The coaching uncertainty at LSU and the quarterback uncertainty at UF seems like the formula for a flip."

Shea Dixon … LSU Insider: “There’s been smoke surrounding Franks’ commitment to LSU for more than a month, and now Franks has even come out and admitted that he’s taking a final look around to make sure he’s making the right decision. His actions - visiting UF twice in two weeks with at least one more visit coming - speak loudly, and it’s evident the Gators have his attention more than ever. What hamstrings LSU right now is uncertainty with the coaching staff, with reports swirling that Les Miles is on the hot seat - not to mention Franks’ two LSU recruiters in Cam Cameron and Bradley Dale Peveto. If LSU can hold onto the final visit on Dec. 11-13, that might be their lone hope of keeping Franks committed in the 11th hour. All things considered, it’s not trending in the right direction for LSU."

Crystal Ball: The 247Sports Crystal Ball has moved in Florida’s direction over the past few weeks, with the Gators now holding 42-percent of the 12 predictions. LSU is checking in at 33-percent, with Florida State fading at 25-percent.

The reality of the Franks decommit

Feleipe Franks is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the class of 2016 with as high of a ceiling as just about anybody. But Franks was no savior for LSU. The struggles that LSU has had in its passing offense under Cam Cameron weren't going to disappear with the arrival of Franks. He was and is going to need some seasoning and some development. He's got first round NFL talent but he's at least two years away from being an effective college starter.

In that sense, Franks' decommitment from LSU is not devastating, at least in the short term. He's not Jacob Eason, Shea Patterson or Brandon Peters, guys that could potentially step on campus and compete for the starting job on day one. He's a long term play. So LSU will win or lose in 2016 with what they have on their roster currently. But the pressure is still on the Tigers to respond and respond effectively.

True freshman Justin McMillan is not a long term answer at LSU and currently the Tigers don't have a quarterback commit in the class of 2016. They need to land one and land a competent one. Regardless of who the coach is in Baton Rouge, two consecutive classes without an elite-level passer in the SEC will sting.

Feleipe Franks backs off LSU pledge

Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla Top247 quarterback Feleipe Franks announced his decommitment from LSU Monday night on Twitter. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound signal caller has visited Florida's past two home games and plans to attend his third in a row this coming Saturday when the Gators host Florida State.

For about a month now I have been talking with LSU about decommitting. I have given this process a lot of thought and feel it's only best for me to make my decommitment public. I want to thank the LSU coaches, staff and the amazing fans for all of their support. - @18franks - Feliepe Franks

The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Franks as the nation's No. 45 overall prospect and the No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class.

fisher gets me nervous. that divorce might have him wantin to get outta town and away from bad memories or somethin. of course hes gonna have that same situation at LSU since he used to coach there too so idk. scariest thing is LSU is actually serious about maybe firing miles. makes me think they already got fisher locked up.

but texas had way more cash and he turned em down hard. whats the pitch LSU is gonna hit him with? come win 3 sec titles and a national title, but we'll fire you the second you lose 3 in a row. im hopin the only reason hes flirtin is to get more $$$ from fsu
I think if he did leave it would be for Saban like money and control, or a new start after the divorce. Although, I know FSU boosters will shell out big $ to keep him in Tally. If he stays, we could easily pick up a lot of players on their commit list or main targets like Saivion Smith, Shavar Manuel, Trayvon Mullen, Feliepe Franks (who decommitted tonight), Michael Divinity and various others. At FSU he's got stadium upgrades coming, just got the new IPF, new dorms for players, new locker room, new meeting rooms, nutritional center and other things for players, etc., etc. So honestly his program is on the up and up and he has the best of the best that the boosters, fans & alumni have provided him and I see it as no reason to leave. Like Mike Belloti just said on ESPNU, why would Jimbo leave. He has a winnable conference in the power 5, he's in a hot recruiting bed, he's got everything he's needed for his players and staff that he's asked for and needed and he's won titles there. He saw no reason to leave FSU especially if he went and did the same thing as Les at LSU he would be canned in a few years. Best to stay put!

Feleipe Franks backs off LSU pledge

Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla Top247 quarterback Feleipe Franks announced his decommitment from LSU Monday night on Twitter. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound signal caller has visited Florida's past two home games and plans to attend his third in a row this coming Saturday when the Gators host Florida State.

For about a month now I have been talking with LSU about decommitting. I have given this process a lot of thought and feel it's only best for me to make my decommitment public. I want to thank the LSU coaches, staff and the amazing fans for all of their support. - @18franks - Feliepe Franks

The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Franks as the nation's No. 45 overall prospect and the No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class.
Definitely not feeling that news.

Not gon lie this Jimbo sh!t got me nervous. lsu seems too confident that they already have him. I'm hoping his name is being used as a diversion for who they really want so that other schools that need a new coach won't try & snatch him up. Overall it doesn't make sense to me why he'd leave. Outside of $$$ he's set up nice. Great facilities, potential top 5 recruiting class, & a potential championship contender next season. Everyone keeps saying $$$ but there is something called "peace of mind." Jimbo strikes me as a peace of mind type person.

I fu*k hope not but i think jimbo gone. Any other job I'd be like hell no but he love Louisiana like he do tally. Before Les Miles was even thought about being fired I read an article and jimbo said LSU got a really really special place in his heart. Kinda emphasized it.

I'd be pissed if he left but we still FSU we gonna eat regardless

VIP Scoop: Official visit plans for Franks

On Monday evening, Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla four-star pro-style quarterback Feleipe Franks backed off his pledge to LSU.

Florida is considered the favorite at this time. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound signal-caller has visited Gainesville for their past two home game weekends and is expected back on Saturday for the game between the Gators and Florida State. All of those visits, including this weekend's upcoming visit, have been unofficial visits.

A commitment to Florida isn't out of the question following this weekend's upcoming visit to Gainesville.

If he decides to wait on making a pledge, a source with knowledge of Frank's recruitment tells Noles247.com that at this time, his official visit plans are Florida State during the weekend of December 4th and Florida on the following weekend (Dec. 11th).

Franks and Wakulla remain in the hunt for a state championship. If they advance to the Class 5A State Championship, they will play on Friday, December 11th, in the afternoon slot. So that would not interfere with official visit plans.

December 14th begins a dead period.

Franks, a U.S. Army All-American, is expected to be an early enrollee.

The 247Sports.com Crystal Ball has Florida claiming 81-percent of predictions. FSU and LSU each claim equal shares of the remaining 19-percent.

Franks is ranked by the 247Sports.com Composite as the No. 45 prospect in the nation and No. 5 pro-style quarterback.
