One of the top 2016 quarterbacks in the country is Feleipe Franks. He was in Athens, Ga. Monday and the Dawgs offered him a scholarship.

UGA is usually slow to offer a signal caller, but not this time.

"It [the offer] happened in the middle of the visit," said Franks. "Coach [Mark] Richt was talking to me for a while and he offered me.

"He talked to me about what they look for in a quarterback, what they like about me, and things like that. We had a good conversation."

Mike Bobo is the lead recruiter for UGA when is comes to signal callers and the Bulldog offensive coordinator spent some time with the new target as well.

"I talked to Coach Bobo some, but I got to sit in the quarterback meetings with him, and that was cool. I got to watch film with them, I got to listen in, and that was very informal for me. I learned a lot just in that time.

"I like Coach Bobo though. He is a cool guy, he is smart, and he was real good in the meeting."

The offer from Georgia puts the 6-foot-4, 190 pound sophomore out of Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla close to 20.

The last one was from Alabama and Florida State offered before the Tide.

UGA captured his attention Monday.

"I liked it up at Georgia," said Franks. "I like how the coaches are so personal there and how they develop guys outside of football.

"I just wanted to get up there to see what the coaches had to say and to see what it was like and I liked it. I got the offer, that is great, and I have high interest in them."

Franks is a four-star on Scout and he currently has no favorites. His next visit will be to LSU on April 5.
