After 5 days, Franklin III shows 'wow' factor

After 5 days, Franklin III shows 'wow' factor

(WAFF) - Auburn wrapped up their fifth spring practice before taking the next 10 days off for Spring Break.

Players will resume work on March 22.

All eyes are on the quarterback position and newcomer John Franklin III. After a week, Gus Malzhan seems duly impressed with Franklin.

"[He] throws the ball well, we're just trying to get his timing down as far as the running game, as far as the pass game," said Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn after Thursday's practice. "But he's naturally fast. When he takes off running, he has the wow factor. He can really run. You know, he's competing."

Jeremy Johnson and Sean White are also battling for the starting Quarterback position.
