Reminds Us Of

Feleipe Franks Arkansas Razorbacks

The point man at one of South Florida’s top high school programs over the past few years. Owns a bit of an unorthodox throwing motion with a lower release point, but has the size that everyone covets at the quarterback position and isn’t afraid to challenge tight coverage windows. Showed plenty of potential as both a sophomore and junior, but really hit his stride as a senior, torching a pair of nationally-ranked defenses for 300-plus yards. Climbs well in the pocket and can quickly distribute the ball in the face of pressure. Seems to be at his best when he can establish a wide base and use it as his launching point. Had the luxury of getting bailed out every now and then by legitimate blue-chip talent like Jeremiah Smith, but still had his fair share of moments on the big stage, and exits high school with a 28-2 record as a starter. Has to cut down on the mistakes, and is likely going to need plenty of refinement before he’s ready to go on Saturday’s, but has developmental upside. Could always get a look somewhere else on offense given rare athletic profile: Over 6-foot-6 with a 4.8 in the 40-yard dash, 4.4 in the short shuttle, and a 29-inch vertical jump.
