It’s seemingly just a matter of time before Florida lands its second quarterback for 2016.

Top-100 overall recruit and early enrollee Feleipe Franks decommitted from LSU on Monday, announcing his decision on Twitter.

The move doesn’t comes as a surprise following Franks’ back-to-back visits to UF this month for its home games against Vanderbilt and Florida Atlantic.

The 6-foot-6, 219-pounder is a pro-style quarterback who also has mobility, the ideal fit for the offensive scheme of Jim McElwain and Doug Nussmeier. The two UF coaches have been pursuing Franks for months and recently started gaining traction, which he revealed in an interview with The Sun.

Franks, a U.S. Army All-American, plans to return to Gainesville this weekend for the Florida State game.
