Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday that Tigers wide receiver and former star of the Netflix series "Last Chance U" is leaving the program.


Many believe that Franklin could be headed to FAU where he would join forces with new head coach Lane Kiffin. He recently graduated and will be able to play immediately.

If you're playing him at QB then your elevator really doesn't go all the way up to the top.

Kid couldn't throw. Not at EMCC and not at Auburn!

Dude sucks. Better not go to FAU, because he has zero chance of beating out Deandre Johnson.

Surprised they didn't start a Heisman campaign for him.

Good luck to him! He seems like a really good kid who rebounded strongly after the very horrible mistake he made.

wrong QB. Franklin is from season 1. He left FSU after not getting an opportunity to play. FAU did accept the QB from season 2 who had hit the girl in the bar.

Seems completely dilusional about how good he is. Kid is an FCS level qb, at best.

Wrong guy, this is the self centered tool bag who looked at his cell phone for 8 episodes in season one while sitting behind a guy who walked onto Mississippi State for 90% of the year.

God bless. If he can play and see the field at another school, good on him. Thanks for coming to Auburn. War Eagle.

JF4 is his new name. He played for 4 different college teams.

Not unusual for an AU player.

He should just switch to WR now if he wants a professional future.

Interesting that the other QB is an EMCC (and fellow FSU) alum DeAndre Johnson. Also have Jeff Driskel's little brother on the roster. Wonder if he will play QB or WR...have to think h was told he could play QB.
