University of Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops has hired E.K. Franks as a recruiting coordinator. Franks’ last job was as Florida’s director of player personnel. Kentucky’s newest hire does have a connection to the staff, most notably with wide receivers coach Micheal Smith. They both were on the staff at Arkansas at the same time.
Franks’ Florida connection can help Kentucky a ton Florida. Kentucky has done a pretty good job of getting some talented guys out of one of the most talented football states in the country. Eddie Gran has good Florida ties, as well, meaning the combination of Franks and Gran can only help us.
