Franshaw's playmaking hit several D1 radars

While several seniors have chosen their school of choice, there are still a large number of guys seeking that right fit. One those is a Top 20 Houston area wide receiver Brian Franshaw of Second Baptist, who has been hearing from several colleges. TexasPrepInsider's Ahmard Vital caught up with Franshaw recently to talk football and college recruiting.

While the Second Baptist football program has plenty of college recruiters on campus due to the overwhelming success of their quarterback, there are several pieces that complete the puzzle of the Eagles' talented team.

One of those is Second Baptist wide receiver Brian Franshaw

In a recent game against Lutheran South, Franshaw caught six passes for 139 yards and a touchdown. The Eagles won the game 46-6 and have a 6-2 record on the year.

But for the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Franshaw, the game is quite simple for him.

"I just try to make plays for my team and my quarterback," Franshaw said. "I just do what I do all season and just go out there, play positive, and have fun out there."

The quarterback who has been mentioned is Conner Wood, who has been on the forefront for many years, and has been the Eagles' quarterback since freshman year. Franshaw has played with him for some time and has a good connection with him when the game-time clock hits.

"He's been the quarterback since freshman year when I was a sophomore and we have a pretty good vibe," Franshaw said. "We just go out an play like we play at practice with no pressure and just have fun."

And while Wood is seeing success from the college scene, Franshaw is as well. 

"I have couple of colleges interested like Vanderbilt, TCU, Duke, SMU, Stanford," Franshaw said. "I have no offers, but you never know what may happen."

With that said, Franshaw is just looking to go out and do what is best for the team and looks for the rest to take care of itself. While he would like to see more movement in his recruitment, he has 37 receptions for 544 yards and five touchdowns on the year.

He said that most schools are recruiting him for the receiver position, but Franshaw is open to any position.

And any school.

"I think I can bring a lot to a college program. I have good speed and mentality offensively," Franshaw said. "But I no problem moving to the defensive side if that is what a team wants me to do. There are no programs I favor and any school is fine by me. I'm just trying to get a good education out of it and all of the schools I mentioned have good academic programs there. 

"That is what I am looking for."
