Noah Franklin, the all-state offensive lineman from Vinita, Okla., said he is still committed to Oklahoma State, but it is apparent that Arkansas really tried to jump Oklahoma State's commitments when Les Miles left OSU to become head coach at LSU.
"The calls started the next morning," said Franklin. "I'm going to go visit Oklahoma State this weekend and then I'm going to visit Arkansas the next weekend. I'm still committed, but I'm going to see how they are looking over at Arkansas and then make my decision."
Franklin, a 6-5, 300pound offensive tackle prospect, said he talked with Arkansas offensive line coach Mark Markuson this past weekend and received a call from Oklahoma State's new offensive line coach Joe Wickline.
"Coach Wickline made a real good first impression," said Franklin of the conversation. "He impressed me, but I want to see him in person and see what he has planned for me."
