John Franklin III Is Transferring To FAU

The former Last Chance U star has made his transfer decision.

Lane Kiffin is getting a new wide receiver.

Former Auburn quarterback-turned-wide receiver John Franklin III has made his transfer decision.

It's FAU.

He'll play wideout for Kiffin's program.

Franklin, a top QB recruit coming out of high school, transferred from Florida State to East Mississippi Community College, where he was a fan favorite on the Netflix show. He then committed to Auburn, but didn't see the field much as a QB, so he made the switch to wideout this preseason. The Tigers reportedly asked him about switching to defense, which prompted him to transfer.

Best of luck to him at FAU.
