The promise of a Tony Franklin offense has already landed a new Auburn commitment.
Junior college quarterback Chris Todd, who was set to follow Franklin to Troy, said Sunday he would sign with the Tigers, a decision apparently predicated on Todd’s familiarity with Franklin’s specific version of the spread; according to Charles Goldberg, “Franklin was the offensive consultant to Todd’s high school when Todd was the quarterback.”
This is the very sort of thing that has Auburn fans as happy over Franklin’s potential recruiting prowess – as of Sept. 2005, 70 high schools (mostly southern) had participated in his coaching clinic – as his proven offensive dexterity, which is making me happier almost by the second.
Two salient, mouthwatering quotes on Frankin’s offensive scheme:
“If both teams have players who are equal in talent, this offense is impossible to stop.” – John Hannah, yes that one.
“We ran the exact same system in high school.” -Kodi “Future Boy” Burns
Now watch this with new, eager eyes…
