AUBURN, AL (WTVM) – Auburn University has just added a new quarterback to the mix.
John Franklin III of East Mississippi Community College tweeted a video of himself signing his letter of intent and faxing it to Auburn athletics on Wednesday.
Franklin originally signed with Florida State, redshirted, and then played sparingly as a freshman. He transferred out when the Seminoles signed Everett Golson this summer.
This past season at East Mississippi, Franklin passed for 733 yards with 7 TD's and rushed for 451 yards and 9 TD's.
He was rated the top athlete in JuCo, will enroll next month, and take part in spring practice as an Auburn Tiger.
