Continuing to scour the nation for the next crop of talent, Lincoln Riley and the rest of coaching staff found yet another player containing #OUDNA. Taking to social media, Troy Franklin became the recent recipient of an official offer from the Oklahoma Sooners.
A 5-star wide receiver in the 247Sports composite ratings, Franklin is a highly touted prospect. Possessing explosiveness off the line of scrimmage, the 2021 recruit immediately puts defenders on their heels. Labeled as a speedster, there’s plenty of room for improvement in terms of route running.
Where Franklin could have an immediate impact on the collegiate level is in the return game. At this current point in time, 247Sports predicts the receiver to be an immediate starter and future first-round draft pick. Clearly, this is one prospect with a high ceiling.
