  10/17/20 - QB Feleipe FranksrSr/2021, Arkansas, 6-6, 228 (DS#19 QB) + More +

  Without question, the Arkansas quarterback has improved every week. He has passed for 730 yards, including 212 at Starkville and 318 at Auburn. He might have to beat those numbers this week if the Hogs are going to keep up with the Rebels. The best thing Franks has done the last two weeks is help the Hogs avoid turnovers. He didn't throw an interception at Auburn while playing in wet conditions. Pittman has praised Franks a couple of times this week. On his radio show, the coach said, "What he's done is he's allowed us to come in here in our first year and start changing the view of Arkansas football. He's an excellent quarterback, an excellent leader. He's what we are, he's tough. You've seen him tuck the ball and get extra yards. He's making really good decisions and he's helped us put Arkansas back to where we belong and it'll help us in recruiting." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas running back Trelon Smith never saw panic in quarterback Feleipe Franks' eyes or a change in his demeanor. It would have been easy to press and be overcome with frustration after the Razorbacks' offense went three-and-out on three of its first four possessions against No. 13 Auburn on Saturday. In the first quarter, Arkansas recorded only 46 yards and was 0-for-4 on third down. The Tigers seemingly had an answer for each move the Razorbacks made early. But as the game wore on, Franks looked like the savvy SEC veteran Arkansas was hoping he would be when he transferred from Florida. And he put his team in position to win its second consecutive game in league play. In the controversial 30-28 loss to Auburn, he completed 22 of 30 passes for a season-high 318 yards and four touchdowns.

"Feleipe, man, he's a hell of a quarterback," said Smith, who totaled 159 yards of offense. "He's always the type of guy to come over on the sideline and motivate everybody to keep going, keep pushing, next play. He always tells us to forget about the (last) play and move on to the next play. "He's a true leader on this football team." Franks is providing Arkansas with something it hasn't received in years: quality play at quarterback. On Saturday, he became the first Razorbacks quarterback since Brandon Allen in 2015 to pass for 300-plus yards and four touchdowns in a game. Franks is only the fourth Razorback to reach those marks since 2000. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas safety Jalen Catalon was impressed with Franks' performance and his leadership as the offense battled back from a 17-0 hole. His play inspired the defense, Catalon said. "Feleipe is a baller. No matter what happens, I never see Feleipe get shook by anything," Catalon said. "He always has his head high and he's always motivating us to keep going no matter what the scenario is. It showed tonight. It's easy to get down with everything, but you saw that look in his eye that he was ready to go no matter what. "You saw him string together some drives, which gave us, the defense, confidence to say, 'We've got a quarterback that's going to do his thing. Let's do our thing.' Before you know it, we're back in the game." Franks finished with a quarterback rating of 206.4, the highest for a Razorback when attempting at least 30 passes since Allen (202.8) against Mississippi State in 2015. "He did his thing, you know," Catalon said. "I wish there was a couple of calls that went our way toward the end to finish off the game, but it is what it is. I'm proud of Feleipe, and I'm glad he's our quarterback. I wouldn't want anyone else on our team." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  As Feleipe Franks was being sacked late in the first half - enveloped by Kobe Jones and headed toward the grass in a folded-up fashion - his night nearly came to an end. Tyrus Wheat, a 260-pound linebacker, came charging in from Franks' backside and delivered a crushing shoulder into the quarterback's mid-back area. Franks stayed down on the field for a few moments before walking gingerly to the sideline with head trainer Dave Polansky. SEC Network analyst Kelly Stouffer noted Franks had an opportunity to throw the pass away before taking the 8-yard sack. "That's one of the things that as a fifth-year senior you have to learn," Stouffer said. "Don't take unnecessary abuse. You're valuable when you're on the field for your team." The Bulldogs went three and out, and Franks returned for a kneel-down to end the half. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Feleipe Franks threw two touchdown passes and Arkansas intercepted K.J. Costello three times as the Razorbacks broke a 20-game SEC losing streak by upsetting No. 16 Mississippi State 21-14 on Saturday night. A week after a record-breaking and stunning upset against LSU, the Bulldogs (1-1) and new coach Mike Leach hardly looked like the same team. Costello was 43 of 59 for 313 yards and one touchdown. Costello and the Air Raid shredded LSU for a Southeastern Conference record 623 yards passing, but the Bulldogs turned the ball over on downs in the red zone twice in the fourth quarter and also lost a fumble against Arkansas.

Greg Brooks Jr. returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown to put Arkansas (1-1) on top early and the Razorbacks led 14-7 at the half. Arkansas managed only 275 yards of total offense and 24 minutes of possession. That turned out to be enough. Franks was 20-of-28 for 212 yards. Arkansas had not won an SEC game since beating Mississippi Oct. 28, 2017. That was two coaches ago for the Razorbacks, who are in their first year under Sam Pittman. - Arkansas/AP College Football

  Quarterback Feleipe Franks, asked last week whether he would need to take a snap in a game to fully trust his surgically repaired ankle, had this take: "I think my confidence is through the roof right now. "We had a scrimmage this past Friday and I felt wonderful, 100%. I take it personally every rep. I treat it like a game rep. So to say that when game time comes that's going to be my first game rep, I think that would be far from it." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  2021 SENIOR BOWL WATCH LIST: Feleipe Franks, Arkansas,...ranks will be playing his first season in Fayetteville as a graduate transfer after a successful three-year run at Florida, where he played in 28 games and made 25 starts, registering 4,593 passing yards with 37 touchdowns to 17 interceptions and a 59.1% completion percentage (354-for-599). On the ground, the Crawfordsville, Fla. product ran for 438 yards and eight scores. Last season, Franks started the first three games of the season but missed the remainder of the campaign due to an injury. - Arkansas Football

  Arkansas opened preseason camp Monday with quarterback Feleipe Franks leading the first-team offense. Franks, the senior graduate transfer from Florida, hasn't been named the Razorbacks' starting quarterback for the Sept. 26 opener against Georgia, but all indications pointed toward him being the front runner in the lead up to Monday's first practice. It was Franks' first practice as a Razorback. He transferred to Arkansas for the start of the spring semester in January, but the team wasn't able to go through spring drills. Franks' only on-field work in Fayetteville had been walkthroughs in the weeks leading up to the start of the preseason. "Feleipe's got a very, very strong arm," Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman said following Monday's practice. "I thought he was really accurate today. He played like what you certainly hope a veteran quarterback would play." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas first-year offensive coordinator Kendal Briles had to wait and wait some more before getting an up-close-and-personal look at Feleipe Franks throwing the football. To this point, approaching the start of preseason practice Monday, Briles has not been disappointed by what he's seen from the Florida graduate transfer. Watching Franks on film, Briles figured he would have a live arm. "He does," Briles said Friday during a Zoom conference with reporters. "The thing I've been impressed with is how he's been able to get the ball out of his hand and just really consistent with all his throws. "Not a lot of wobble in the ball."

Briles and Arkansas coach Sam Pittman have been adamant that Franks, the projected starter, is not going to simply be handed the starting job. But he certainly does have a leg up given his experience with the Gators. Franks started 24 of the 27 games he appeared in at Florida and threw for more than 4,500 yards and 38 touchdowns. Briles expects him to be sharp and precise when the Razorbacks hit the field next week. "Hopefully Feleipe will be what we think he is," Briles said. "There's still going to be competition, but I would say it's going to be his job to lose." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  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
