John Franklin III is headed for yet another school.
The former Netflix star will play his final season for Lane Kiffin at Florida Atlantic University.
“John Franklin came to me expressing his desire for the chance to play more and get closer to home," Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement. “He has made the decision to play elsewhere this season as a graduate transfer.
“John has been an outstanding young man during his time here and leaves Auburn with a degree. We wish John nothing but the best and thank him for his time at Auburn.”
Franklin came to Auburn as a quarterback from East Mississippi Community College, but lost the quarterback competition to Sean White.
Franklin moved to wide receiver for this final season on the Plains, but found himself lower on the depth chart behind talented young receivers.
Franklin completed 14 of his 26 career passes for 204 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for 430 yards on 46 carries and two scores.
