  Generally, in sports, bigger is better. Big trumps little. Conventional wisdom doesn't apply where it comes to quarterback, most notably where height comes into play for the NFL. Some NFL teams ahead of the draft downgraded former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett because he measured 6-7. So it probably shouldn't surprise when Feleipe Franks objected when new teammate Trey Knox, measured at 6-5, said the new Arkansas quarterback was a couple of inches taller, a good 6-7. "I'm 6-6," Franks said. "I'm not trying to grow. I'll take 6-5, or 6-6. That's a good height for a quarterback."

Translation: Don't list the Crawfordsville, Fla., product at 6-7. "I do make sure when I'm measured it's without my shoes on," Franks said. There are a lot of things the Razorbacks are making sure about. The covid-19 safety measures are serious. Franks has led some summer 7-on-7 passing drills that are the heart of preparations for the start of walk-through practices July 24. The covid-19 global pandemic took on special meaning to Franks. He traveled to Texas for the funeral of an uncle on June 20. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  The long layoff in competitive football must feel like ages for Feleipe Franks. The graduate transfer quarterback for the University of Arkansas has not taken a competitive snap since suffering a broken ankle Sept. 14 as the starting quarterback at Florida. Franks, 22, entered the transfer portal in December, signed with the Razorbacks for new coach Sam Pittman and his staff and settled into Fayetteville over the winter. The 6-6, 235-pounder is essentially healed and overly eager to start firing footballs in the Kendal Briles offense. Franks, who started 24 games over three seasons at Florida, including all 13 as a redshirt sophomore in 2018, said style of offense was one of the biggest attractions to signing with Arkansas.

"I like the freedom about it," Franks said earlier this spring. "It's kind of what I'm used to. It's kind of like what it was at Florida. "It just gives freedom to the receivers and some of the other people to do some things. I think it's a really productive offense. It's going to be really productive here. I believe in it, our players believe in it and our team believes in it." Franks will try to solidify a quarterback slot that was anything but stable during the two-year run of Coach Chad Morris and coordinator Joe Craddock. The Razorbacks used eight different quarterback starters the last two seasons, including a different starter in each of the last five games of 2019, the Hogs' second 2-10 season in a row. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  University of Arkansas athletics director Hunter Yurachek is in favor of a potential NCAA rule change that would allow players in the most high-profile sports to transfer once without penalty. The NCAA Division I Council is expected to vote this month on whether to allow all scholarship athletes in football, men's and women's basketball, baseball and men's ice hockey to transfer once without having to sit out a year, as NCAA rules currently read for those sports. Athletes in most other NCAA sports are immediately eligible following a transfer from their initial team. Yurachek has said that he thinks the proposed one-time transfer exemption will pass, but it hit a potential snag Thursday when the 25-member NCAA Board of Governors recommended against the proposal. The 40-member Division I Council is expected to vote on the proposal May 20.

A working group of college administrators has recommended in favor of the one-time transfer exemption for the five sports, as have the Big Ten and ACC. "I don't know if that will be approved to go into effect for this year, but I think there's been movement," Yurachek said April 9. "What's become very cumbersome is the waiver process for the NCAA and how certain waivers have some guidelines that are approved and how others are denied. I think the NCAA would like to get out of the waiver business and by having this one-year transfer exemption, it allows the NCAA to get out of that waiver business and kind of level that off a little bit. I think that's the right thing to do for our student-athletes." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Former Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks had a lot of options when it came to where he wanted to play his final year of college football. Choosing a program that has won 4 of 24 games the last two seasons might have seemed like a strange choice to many, but first-year Arkansas coach Sam Pittman and Razorbacks offensive coordinator Kendal Briles put forth their best vision for a different future. "That was one of the things when I came (for his official visit), I wanted to sit down because that was one of the most important things for me - what kind of offense am I going to be in," Franks said. "I really liked Coach Briles' philosophy, Coach Pittman and everything they bring to the table.

"I do believe that we are building something special here at Arkansas. I am grateful to be a part of it. I am glad that these guys have accepted me to come in and be a part of their team and just be the best team player and help out any way I can." Briles is a big fan of Franks, who will battle fellow quarterbacks KJ Jefferson, Jack Lindsey, John Stephen Jones and incoming freshman Malik Hornsby for playing time. "When you go after guys that are graduate transfers, obviously you have to have people that are going to come in and hopefully help change your program for the better," Briles said during a teleconference last week. "Feleipe we feel like was one of those kids. He's done it at a really high level and he's been successful. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Injured quarterback Feleipe Franks is leaving Florida to explore other options. Franks announced his decision on social media Sunday, a day after the seventh-ranked Gators beat rival Florida State 40-17 in the Swamp. "My heart is heavy," he wrote in a message posted on Instagram. "There will be a lot that is missed. I plan on exploring my options of entering the NFL draft or playing my final year elsewhere." The 6-foot-6 Franks gruesomely dislocated and fractured his right ankle in a victory at Kentucky in September. He is expected to be sidelined for at least six months. The recovery time and the emergence of backup Kyle Trask made Franks' chances of regaining the starting job in 2020 a long shot.

A fourth-year junior from Crawfordville, Franks completed 59% of his passes for 4,593 yards. He had 38 touchdown passes and 17 interceptions. He also ran for eight scores. Franks started to blossom under coach Dan Mullen. But it's become clear that Trask and Emory Jones would be the quarterbacks of the future in Gainesville. Franks, who has a strong right arm and pitched in high school, also was drafted by the Boston Red Sox with the 947th pick in the 31st round of the 2019 amateur draft. He hasn't played baseball since his junior year of high school because he graduated in December 2015 and enrolled early at Florida. - AP College Football

  Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks has been carted off the field with a right leg injury late in the third quarter of the No. 9 Gators' Southeastern Conference game against Kentucky on Saturday night. Franks was scrambling before being stopped for no gain by the Wildcats' Calvin Taylor on a fourth-and-1 play at the Kentucky 38. Team medical personnel came on the field and soon placed an inflatable cast under Franks' right leg before the junior was placed on a cart and taken off for observation. Franks completed 12 of 17 passes for 174 yards and a 15-yard touchdown before the injury. Florida players swarmed around Franks on the cart to offer support before he was taken away to applause from a sold-out crowd at Kroger Field. - AP College Football

  Feleipe Franks made up for three inexcusable turnovers by accounting for three touchdowns, doing just enough to help No. 8 Florida beat Miami 24-20 Saturday night in the opening game of the college football season. Franks threw for 254 yards and two scores and ran for another as the Gators won for just the second time in their last nine meetings with the Hurricanes. It was a fairly fitting performance for the junior who has been benched five times in three years.

Franks looked anywhere from good to great, from lost to downright awful. He was clutch one minute, dropping in a perfect pass to Freddie Swain that gained 65 yards and set up the go-ahead score, and looked confused the next, throwing right to a defender for his second interception of the night. Florida's defense bailed Franks out time and time again, finishing with 10 sacks and 16 tackles for a loss. - AP College Football

  Feleipe Franks' offseason included the typical work - lifting weights, throwing with receivers, studying film — and some unique adventures in his backyard. Franks and his four housemates, including a pair of 300-pound offensive linemen, organized "a little wrassling" in their pool. The rules were simple: First to get pushed, pulled, dragged or carried into the deep end and then fully submerged loses. Franks more than held his own in the friendly competitions, showing toughness and tenacity. Florida is counting on the same from its starting quarterback this season.

And if Franks is good, the Gators could be great. The 6-foot-6, 230-pound junior from Crawfordville is the ultimate X-factor in Gainesville. It's an odd dynamic considering he's a two-year starter and played the best football of his career down the stretch in 2018. But it's a reality for the Gators in coach Dan Mullen's second season. "The biggest thing for him is consistency," said Mullen, whose team finished 10-3 in 2018. "He has a much better grasp of the offense. But just his constant, his leadership. - AP College Football
