California 2017 offensive tackle target Aaron Banks said in June, at the Avery Strong Camp on the campus of Contra Costa College in Pinole, Calif., that his younger brother, 6-foot-1, 310-pound Franklin Banks, would be a major player. This week, Franklin scored his very first scholarship offer, and fittingly, it was from the Bears.
We were at that very same camp, and took footage of the younger Banks, which you can see above. He's built low and strong, with his older brother's bulk compressed into a shorter, wider frame. He's a prototypical three-technique defensive tackle with a lot of power, who uses his hands well. His feet still need to quicken up a bit, but that should come with him turning some bad weight into good weight, and maturity.
