The future is very uncertain for Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks. The Gators starter dislocated his ankle during the team’s game against Kentucky, and will miss the remainder of the season.
Franks should be back under center in 2020. The question: will it be for Florida, or another program?
Ahead of today’s game—a big 24-13 win over No. 7 Auburn in Gainesville—Franks updated CBS on his situation. With one year of eligibility left, he is not sure if he’ll return to UF, or transfer elsewhere to finish his college career.
For this fall, he is still very much a Gator, and was elated after quarterback Kyle Trask, wide receiver Freddie Swain, and his team pulled out the big upset victory.
After the game, Franks rode his scooter onto the field to greet Swain, who might’ve been the player of the game for Florida.

Swain was a huge weapon for UF today, catching six passes for 146 yards and a touchdown, an explosive 64-yard score off of a quick slant early in the game.
Feleipe Franks may have played his last snap as a Gator. Time will tell. No one can accuse him of being anything but a tremendous teammate in the meantime though.
Florida’s tough SEC road continues next weekend. The Gators get another Top 10 team, No. 5 LSU, on the road.
