Kamarion Franklin picked up an offer from Michigan today. He is a 6’5″ 250lb DE out of Lake Cormorant who says he hates QBs.
Kamarion now holds sixteen offers. This kid turns heads every time he pops out. This is a guy who is very tall and has some nice size. He can get off blocks very fast and gets his head around to find the ball carrier. He has a nice jump off the line and can move with the best of them in his position.
Kamarion uses his size and length to help him a lot. I like how he uses quick hands to shed offenders trying to block him. He can get to the backfield and cause a lot of problems. Kamarion also is a good tackler. There won’t be too many guys faking him out. Kamarion also shows great awareness on the field. You won’t call too many screen plays and catch him off guard. He is a guy that studies films and knows what to expect out of his opponent.
He is very great in the pass rush as well. His explosive first step allows him to get by offensive lineman and cause much corruption in the pocket. I like the way he keeps that outside arm free. He never gets caught in bad situations. Uses great mechanics to help him be a playmaker.
“It feels good knowing my name is getting out there and I’m getting known for doing something I really love,” said Kamarion. “It’s a great feeling. We have been working hard grinding preparing for spring ball. I will continue to grind in the summer for the season.”
“It’s good knowing I have my teammates to count on. We loaded at every spot i’m excited for the season!”
