A career that began with a whole hell of a lot of promise backed by on-field production will reportedly end with, well, a dull, limp thud.
The Daily Oklahoman confirmed through Oklahoma officials Friday that Trey Franks has decided to not return to the Sooners for his final season of eligibility. Even as Franks has graduated from OU and would be free to transfer to another FBS program and play immediately, there’s no indication from the report that’s the path he’ll choose.
Franks began his OU career as a three-star member of the Sooners’ 2010 recruiting class. He played in 25 games (six starts) as a true freshman and sophomore, totaling 51 catches for 459 yards and a touchdown.
Those numbers would serve as Franks’ career receiving totals as he was suspended for the entire 2012 season for unspecified violations of team rules and, after being allowed back into the program following the suspension, spent 2013 as a special teams player.
