Jerry Franklin (DB, Marion, AR) - One of the natural state's top prospects committed to Arkansas after narrowing it down to the Hogs and Rebs, but Jerry decided to take an official visit to Ole Miss anyway.How did the visit go?

"It was really nice. It is close to home. It is just nice down there," added the 6' 2", 210 pound Jerry Franklin.

Did anyone get to accompany Franklin on his trip?

"My teammate, Darcel Johnson came with me. He liked it a lot too."

Was the trip about what he was expecting or more or less?

"It was more than I was expecting because all of the coaches are so cool."

What was the highlight of the trip?

"I think what stood out the most to me was how much the players really believe they are going to change things at Ole Miss and how well I connected with them."

Who was Franklin's player host?

"Allen Walker. He was a real nice guy, and he pretty much answered all of my questions. I wanted to know how complicated the system was. How long would it take me to learn it. I got a chance to go over their system in the film room. At first, it looked pretty complicated, but I can study it and get it down pretty quickly."

How did Coach Orgeron's one on one meeting with Jerry go?

"It was nice. He was not trying to pressure me at all. He was just talking about Ole Miss and how I would fit in. They just let the best players play down there. There is no seniority or anything like that."

Where does Ole Miss now stand?

"They stand pretty good."

Is Jerry still committed to Arkansas?

"Yes sir, but this trip gives me something to think about."

Franklin will take an official visit with Arkansas next weekend; what are some of things he will be comparing to Ole Miss?

"How the players are. How I fit in with them, and how I fit into their system. Is it complicated or not?"

Will Jerry stick with his commitment to the Hogs or end up at Ole Miss?
