Had Aaron Franklin not injured his knee his junior year, the 6-1,220 pounder would most likely be mentioned in the same category as Corey Nelson and Shaun Lewis.
Since his recovery from season ending knee-surgery, Franklin still has offers from schools like Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor, and Texas A&M. The Aggies would love to have Franklin down for their big summer camp this weekend but Franklin is a little burnt out by the recruiting process.
"Im not going to make it down to A&M this weekend. I'm going to be out of town visiting my grandma. Just taking a break from football stuff."
"This doesn't mean I have crossed A&M off my list at all. They are still in my top four. I like OU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Baylor right now, in no specific order."
Franklin had a lot of great things to say about his recruiter Randy Jordan.
"I do want to see coach Jordan again. I really like him a lot. He is the type of coach that will call me up and not talk about just football. He cares about my life and whats going on in it."
The Aggies missed a good shot at making ground on schools like Texas and Oklahoma by having Franklin at their camp but this doesn't spell the end for their hopes on landing the hard-hitting linebacker.
