Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks announced this afternoon a decision on his future with the Gators' football program. Franks will be moving on in 2020.

Franks, who suffered a devastating season-ending injury in September, announced on Instagram his intentions to leave Florida.

"I plan on exploring my options of entering the NFL Draft or playing my final year elsewhere," he wrote on Instagram.

"Thank you everybody for believing in me, especially all my teammates I've played with here."

Franks opened the 2019 season as Florida's starting quarterback, but was replaced by Kyle Trask when he went down with an injury. Trask, a junior, played extremely well following Franks' injury this season.

The Gators have a pretty crowded quarterback room right now, so it makes sense for Franks to explore his playing options.

Florida finished the regular season at 10-2 and should play in a major bowl game.
