Franks, who was injured in Florida’s third game of the year against Kentucky, will explore his NFL Draft stock or if necessary, transfer to another school.

The Crawfordville, FL native will finish his Gators career with 4,593 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions.

Franks showed incredible progress under Dan Mullen and made a major leap as a redshirt sophomore in 2018 which cumminated in a Peach Bowl MVP selection in January.

In June, Franks was selected in the 31st round of the MLB Draft by the Boston Red Sox.

The cupboard will not be bare, however. Florida will have Kyle Trask back as he announced during Florida’s bye week before the FSU game. Emory Jones is also expected to come back and 4-star QB Anthony Richardson is also expected to enter the QB room next year.
