Mark Stoops Hires Recruiting Coordinator from Florida

Mark Stoops’ staff just got a little bit bigger. Football Scoop reports University of Florida director of player personnel E.K. Franks has accepted the recruiting coordinator position at UK.

Prior to his time in Gainesville, Franks spent four seasons in Fayetteville as Arkansas’ recruiting coordinator.  Like new wide receivers coach Michael Smith, Franks also spent time on Kansas State’s staff.

Dan Berezowitz has served as Kentucky’s recruiting coordinator throughout Mark Stoop’ tenure.  His sons Brayden and Bryan are walk-on wide receivers that will be seniors this fall.  All of their bios are still featured at  Right now it’s unclear if Franks will work together with Brez, as Brez work with Vince Marrow, or completely take control of Stoops’ recruiting operations.

    This deserves a Yahtzee! of its own, I would say.

    I think this has every opportunity to be very big for the football program

      Unfortunately, there is little to no in-state talent from Ky…

    It sounds like a good hire but I’ll take a wait-and-see approach. Yes, the headline looks good when you see we hired the Florida recruiting coordinator but he was with Dan Mullen for only four months. Mullen did hire him so I see that as a positive but from what I’ve read it doesn’t sound like he has deep roots in Florida. Time will tell… he might be well connected to the state of Louisiana which would be a positive.
