Speedy, under-the-radar running back Paul Franklin (Dallas, Texas/South Oak Cliff) has verbally committed to Utah State.
Franklin, a 6-foot, 206-pound back with 4.4 speed, gave his verbal pledge while on an official visit to Utah State. He chose the Aggies over offers from Wake Forest, UTEP, New Mexico, New Mexico State and Louisiana Tech.
“I liked how the coaches made it feel like home and how they just brought me in,” Franklin said. “Besides being good coaches, they felt like good friends. I can talk to them, and I can tell that they care about their players. It’s not just football with them.”
