Frampton says yes to Arkansas State

In two of the past three years he's been one of the most electric playmakers in the California JUCO ranks, but it wasn't until this past week that L.A. Harbor WR Dwayne Frampton (5-9, 183) got his first D-1 scholarship offer. Over the weekend he committed to Arkansas State, but a new suitor has come into the picture and he's got a decision to make on Wednesday...

Frampton prepped at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles and committed to Idaho over interest from schools in the Pac 10 and Mountain West.

However, he was unable to qualify and headed to L.A. Harbor to further his football career.

"I knew I could play at the next level and I wanted to go to a place that could use my skills and make me better," Frampton told JCFootball.com recently. "We run a wide-open offense so it was perfect for me because I could use my speed (4.38) and my open-field skills."

This past season, Frampton led the state in receiving yardage with 1,230 yards on 77 receptions and he had nine touchdowns as well.

This weekend he took a visit to Arkansas State and committed to the coaches because he felt like that was the place for him.

"When I got there, it just felt like the perfect fit," Frampton said. "I loved getting to know the coaches and the players and seeing the campus and the program up close.

"It was a great fit for me so I committed and the coaches were real excited and said they were happy to have me."

Ah, but things aren't always so cut and dry. On Monday, Frampton got a call from Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder and now he's got a decision to make.

"I'm committed, but Kansas State wants me to wait before I sign with Arkansas State," Frampton said. "They really like what I can do and stuff, but they can't offer me right away because they have some offers already out there.

"I'm going to talk to my coaches and I'll probably talk to them again. I want to sign my letter-of-intent on Wednesday so I've got some thinking to do."

Because Frampton played in 2007 and redshirted last year, he'll have two years to play two once he signs and enrolls at a school.

We'll check back with the talented wideout over the next 24 hours and updated news as it happens.
