ARC's Coye Francies Has Two Offers

Sacramento (Calif.) American River cornerback Coye Francies (6-2, 195) is holding two scholarship offers so far, and a pair of other schools are expressing interest in the sophomore.

"Washington and Nevada have offered me scholarships," said Francies.  "Kansas and Oregon State are two schools who I hear from now and then."

Francies said it was still too early for him to decide which school he would select and also said he would be taking trips to both of those schools.

"I'm supposed to go to Washington and Nevada sometime in December for my official trips," said Francies.  "I'd like to take some more but those are the only schools right now."

One of the reasons for his hesitance is that he feels that more schools will begin showing interest in him and possibly offer as his film gets out.

"I don't want to narrow it down before I know what all of my options are.  I want to see if there are some more schools that are interested.  To me, every offer is a good offer, so no offer will be better than the two I have, but I want to see if I have more options," Francies said.

While he declined naming a leader between Washington and Nevada, he did say one thing in the Huskies favor is his ties to a UW commit.

"Me and James (Montgomery) played together in high school (Rancho Cordova (Calif.) Cordova) and we go back to when we played Junior Pee-Wee football," said Francies.  "James committed to Washington and that does a lot for Washington for me. I've known him a long time and he is one of my close friends."

Still, Francies said that didn't necessarily give the Huskies any huge lead, but it did mark a positive for them.

So far this season Francies has recorded 10 interceptions and returned a punt 50 yards for a touchdown and a kickoff 89 yards. In 2004, he led the California community college ranks with a 33.5 kickoff return average.

Francies will have three years to play two seasons and said he will have his AA degree by December and will enroll wherever he signs by the spring.
