CORMORANTE DEL LAGO, miss. – Kamarion Franklin has established himself as one of the best prospects in the class of 2024. Franklin has put together a dominant campaign for a second year in film and has impressed in the camp settings since the end of the 2021 season.
Standing at 6-6 and tipping the scales at 255 pounds, Franklin has a great structure that allows him to play all over the defensive front. He plays on the edge at the level of preparation, but shows the versatility that could make him play indoors to the next level as he continues to grow.
The Mississippi star drew comparisons to former five-star prospect Jeffery Simmons, who also starred in Magnolia State on Friday night. Therefore, it is not surprising that some of the best programs in the nation have been involved in Franklin’s recruitment.
Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas, and Texas A&M are among the heaviest in pursuit. Both Ole Miss and Texas A&M hosted Franklin before the August dead period.
“I’m just going through the process right now. I don’t really have the best schools,” Franklin said. “(All the visits) have been good. I’m not used to seeing all of this, so it’s all new to me. It’s a good experience.”
Franklin updates his recruiting and where things stand ahead of his junior season with Rivals.
