Four-star quarterback Deondre Francois will visit two of his top schools this week. He also cut one…
Francois trims list after great visit
Deondre Francois had planned to see both Auburn and Ohio State this week. After a great visit to Auburn, he's canceled his Ohio State trip and has narrowed his list to a final three. "Ohio State has been eliminated, Tennessee has been eliminated. Right now it's just Oregon, Florida State, and Auburn," he said. "Notre Dame kind of came in the picture last and it's not happening with Notre Dame. I don't even have a relationship with the coaches. Ohio State, I just don't want to go there anymore. I don't even know why. Auburn showed me a good time and I feel like I can go home and think about my decision." The four-star quarterback was impressed by all the things he saw at Auburn on his Tuesday visit. "My day went well. I basically saw Auburn, saw the campus, saw the school, the stadium, the cafeteria, the weight room, indoor facilities, all that stuff," he said. "It was very nice, I was very impressed by what I saw. I liked it a lot. I expected it to be old but it's really really new. The guys here just made me feel at home, especially the vibe in the weight room." In fact, he decided to stay the night to hang out with some of his Central Florida friends, Auburn sophomores Tony Stevens and Dominic Walker. Besides having a great vibe with the players, the Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy standout was able spend plenty of time talking head coach Gus Malzahn and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. Francois was able to throw for the coaches and said he really appreciated the way they're approaching his recruitment. "Aside from football, they were just making me feel at home and telling me that I can really sling the ball. They were telling me that they want me here, they weren't forcing me to commit, that's what I really liked," he said. "They let me know they wanted me here and from there they were showing me around and letting me take my time with my decision." Auburn has certainly given Francois plenty to think about. He now heads back to Florida Wednesday and will focus on his final three schools – Auburn, Florida State, and Oregon.
