According to White Plains coach Skip Stevens, senior Odaine Franklin received his first scholarship offer from the University of Akron.
Stevens said Akron has recruited the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Franklin as a linebacker. Franklin played wide receiver and safety last season for the Tigers.
Franklin is also scheduled to attend camp at UConn on Wednesday. Interestinly, the Huskies have recruited Franklin as a fullback, but Stevens told me Franklin had played fullback/tailback coming up until he moved to receiver as a sophomore.
Stevens expects Franklin to play some of everything as a senior this fall. He’ll primarily serve as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end but will also play some receiver, tight end and running back on offense.
