Franklin on his Way to Austin for Visit

Marshall linebacker Aaron Franklin has had an interesting recruitment after missing all of his junior season after a devastating knee injury. Now, Franklin is making one last trip before he makes a final decision between the Longhorns, Sooners, Aggies, and Bears. Stay tuned to Burnt Orange Beat for all the details.

Aaron Franklin's recruiting process started slowly after an injury wiped out his junior season. After the Marshall star showed that his knee was back to form this spring evaluation period, the scholarship offers started to roll in.

However, it took until a standout performance at the June 7 Texas camp before the Longhorns offered Franklin.

Franklin is considering offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Baylor, but has offers from many other programs.

The trip to Austin will provide Franklin one last look at his longtime favorite before he decides in the next few days.

Franklin told Burnt Orange Beat that he is traveling alone and will be in Austin at around 8 pm tonight. Recommended Stories
