Former Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks will transfer to Arkansas, per his Instagram.

Franks started 24 games for the Gators over the past three seasons, including all 13 during the Gators 10-3 season in 2018. He helped lead Florida to a 3-0 start this season, before suffering a season-ending leg injury against Kentucky.

Standing at 6'6, Franks has been one of the most polarizing prospects in the SEC over the past few seasons. For every great moment he had, it always seemed like a horrible one was right around the corner.

He finishes his Florida career with 4593 yards passing, 38 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. He also ran for 438 yards and eight touchdowns.

Franks will look to turn around an Arkansas team that has gone 4-20 over the past two seasons and has not won a conference game since 2017, leading to head coach Chad Morris' firing.

He will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer and has one year of eligibility remaining.
