Gators QB Feleipe Franks Reveals on Instagram He's 'Exploring His Options' to Leave Florida

Unfortunately for Florida Gators fans, that gruesome injury that ended Feleipe Franks' 2019 season might be the final snap of football he played as a Gator.

Franks, who dislocated his right ankle against Kentucky, confirmed that he will consider declaring for the NFL draft or transferring to another school for one more season.

Or maybe baseball? That's also on the table; he was selected by the Red Sox, after all.

Franks threw for 2,457 yards, 24 touchdowns, and six picks in 2018, his first under Dan Mullen. He had five touchdowns and three interceptions before his injury this year.

The emergence of Kyle Trask as a better pure passer has probably prompted Franks to consider transferring or turning pro instead of potentially coming back to Florida to compete for a starting job. At 6-6 and 238 pounds with a howitzer of a right arm, plenty of programs will be hot after Franks if he decides to transfer.

Franks has a lot of polishing to do before he's ready to tackle the NFL, so a transfer might be the most prudent option, albeit a risky one. Whatever he decides, we wish Franks nothing but the best, as he provided Gator Nation with some moments that will live forever.
