Rebels about to add 16th commitment?

Jerry Franklin (DB, Marion, AR) - A relatively unknown prospect attended the Ole Miss Sr Camp and simply dominated the opposition all day.

In fact, he played with the "A" team during the 7 on 7 drills with players of the likes of (LB) Chris Strong, (LB) Damian Robinson, (S) Jamison Hughes, (DB) Darrius Davis, (DB) Johnny Brown, and (DB) Darrius Barksdale.

Franklin measured in at 6' 3", 215 and ran a blistering 4.5 forty at the senior camp.

The Arkansas region knows all about Franklin as he led that state in yards per catch (34.6) last season as he hauled in 15 catches for 520 yards and 8 TD's. Bringing it to the house is a specially of Jerry's as he also returned 3 of his 7 picks for TdDs while roaming the defensive backfield.

What makes Franklin so special?

"My instincts. I let the game come to me. I do not force it," added Jerry Franklin.

The Ole Miss camp definitely put Jerry on the map.

"Yes, I felt like I really showed my stuff out there. I went against the best and had a great day. The camp was a lot bigger than what I was expecting. There was just a lot of talented players out there. All of the Ole Miss coaches, I just love them. They are great."

Will Franklin attend anymore camps this summer?

"I will probably go to Arkansas'."

One school seems to be showing Franklin the most interest right now.

"Right now, Ole Miss is recruiting me pretty heavily. They are the only ones who are calling me consistently, and they text message me a lot too. They are my only offer right now. They offered me yesterday. They talked to my coach. I got to call Coach Freeze tonight. He has done a great job recruiting with me."

Who else is actively recruiting Franklin?

"Memphis, Tennessee, Arkansas, Miami, and Illinois."

What will Jerry be discussing with Coach Freeze from Ole Miss tonight?

"I might go ahead and commit."

What attracts Jerry towards Ole Miss?

"I just feel like I belong there. It fits for me."
