Crawfordville (WTXL) - There are athletes that get recruited, and then, there are athletes that get recruited. Those select few receive dozens of scholarship offers from elite programs, invites to prestigious camps, and for Wakulla rising senior Feleipe' Franks, that's his reality.

The LSU commit is an Elite Eleven quarterback at The Opening this week in Oregon. In non-recruiting speak, that means he's really good.

Like the other 165 top recruits showcased this week, Franks competed at several regional events nationwide. Thanks to his stellar performance, he secured an invitation to The Opening at Nike's World Headquarters.

There, Franks and the other recruits receive training, coaching, and competition against other elite athletes. To put the honor in perspective, former Florida State standouts PJ Williams and Jameis Winston both made the trip west when they were in high school.
