Goliad's Aron Franklin received an offer from SMU last summer, it had appeared that the talented athlete may have waited too long to accept the offer. Franklin was invited for an official visit last weekend, and accepted the offer this time from June Jones. Go inside to see what Franklin had to say.

Goliad's Aron Franklin received an offer from SMU last summer, it had appeared that the talented athlete may have waited too long to accept the offer.

The Mustangs filled up, but June Jones apparently decided to re open the offer, giving the South Texas athlete the break he was hoping for.

"It's great to be a Mustang," Franklin told PonyStampede.com Sunday afternoon. "I loved it there. I really enjoyed my visit a lot. I got a chance to see everything, and got a chance to get to know the players and the coaching staff."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide receiver, runs the forty in 4.46 seconds.According to Franklin, Jones is excited about having the playmaker as a Mustang.

"The coaching staff was very excited about my commitment," Franklin said. "Coach (Jeff) Reinebold has stayed with me throughout the entire process, I'm glad everything worked out like it did."
