2009 Introduction: Roger Franklin

Roger Franklin has received visits from a bunch of schools and is starting to reel in the scholarship offers. He recently spoke with Scout.com and informed us about his new offers.

Since coaches could be back on the road, Duncanville (Tex.) High has been a popular stop, as Roger Franklin has attracted quite the crowd.

Thus far Oklahoma, Marquette, Oklahoma State, Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Kansas State, Texas, Texas A&M, Kentucky, Texas Tech, Georgetown and Arkansas have all stopped by the school to watch him work out.

The 6-foot-5 rising junior has impressed the coaches and has already picked up scholarship offers from Arkansas, Marquette, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, TCU and Utah,

"I'm just staying real positive right now and taking it day by day," Franklin said. "I don't want to make too much of an early commitment but when I do make my decision it'll probably be around my senior year. I'm not trying to commit right now I'm still weighing all my options."

Despite not being close to a making his college decision, Franklin does want to start taking unofficial visits. He expects to take visits to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Oklahoma State and Utah in the near future.

Franklin, who played with Texas Select this summer, has a great stroke from deep and has slowly moved his game away from the basket to the wing.

"I think when I developed my game so that I could come out of the post and be a strong guard, I think that's where it really helped me. I think I played really well this summer."

"All the colleges always tell me that I'm the hardest working player they've ever seen. I think I really fit that definition because to me I feel like I don't want to be out worked because if I'm being outworked then someone is trying to take my spot."

Franklin is rated as a four star prospect by Scout.com
