The LSU Tigers are getting quite the reputation for early commitments.
The Tigers already have secured a commitment from class of 2017 outside linebacker Dylan Moses and class of 2018 quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann.
Now, they have secured their second commitment for the class of 2015. 4-star dual threat quarterback Feleipe Franks gave his pledge to the Tigers on Sunday, joining 4-star wide receiver Stephen Sullivan as a commitment.
This was a needed commitment for the Tigers because they recently lost Hayden Rettig to a transfer and although they have a couple of very talented quarterbacks on their roster, depth could become a concern.
Franks was offered by the Tigers back on April 5 and decided to take an unofficial visit to check out the LSU campus in Baton Rouge three weeks later, the last unofficial visit he took. Then, on Friday, Tigers’ offensive coordinator Cam Cameron came to visit Franks and that visit clearly sealed the deal.
Getting the 6’5, 205-pound Franks to commit was also quite the coup because they went into the talent-rich state of Florida to snatch him up. Franks is from Crawford, Florida and attends Wakulla High School. Franks is currently ranked as the country’s third-best dual threat quarterback, the fourth-best overall prospect in the state of Florida and the 54th-best overall prospect in the class 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Franks chose the Tigers over a very impressive list of offers, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers, Georgia Bulldogs and his home state’s big three of the Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes.
