A 6-2 and 245-pound defensive end, Giovani Francois ended his junior season with 79 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and recovered four fumbles. He was also named to First Team All-State DL for the 3A classification and First Team All Area DL by Bradenton Herald.
"Clemson, Alabama, Rutgers, Louisville, FIU are the teams that I talk to the most right now," Francois said. "I stay in contact with all of them and I like them all. I talked with Coach Strong and Coach Carter at Louisville the other day and they both told me they need dominating defensive linemen and that if I come in and work hard I can be that guy and play as a freshman. They asked me if they had a shot with me and I told them of course. I loved how he ran the Florida defense and I know he is a great coach.
"I was going on some visits this weekend but instead will go to a camp and take trips over the summer. I like Florida State and I will see them over the summer. Also, I am going to head up to camp in June in Gainesville so I can get out there and show them what I can do and then I also think I will be at Friday Night Lights."
