If John Franklin III wins the Auburn starting quarterback job he will see plenty of airtime in 2016.
His television appearance is guaranteed, however, in the upcoming Netflix documentary “Last Chance U.” Franklin will be featured in the documentary that is set to air on July 29. The film highlights East Mississippi Community College, a JUCO powerhouse that has been home to numerous SEC transfers, including Ole Miss’ Chad Kelly and former Alabama defensive lineman Jarran Reed.
After one season at Florida State, Franklin III passed for 773 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 451 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground last season at East Mississippi. He is now in competition with Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and freshman Woody Barrett for the Tigers’ starting job in 2016.
