Magee High School Trojan Xavier Franks has been named as one of the top ten receivers in the State of Mississippi by SBLive Mississippi.
Xavier is the son of Erica Holmes and the late Jimmy Shaw and plans to major in Communications in college.
Xavier is a 3 star athlete who is stands 6’2”. He was named the 20th players in the state by 247 Sports and number 15 by ESPN.
According to Head Coach Teddy Dyess, “Xavier is a young man who completely turned his life around. When he entered 10th grade, he did not like school or football. Between his 10th and 11th grade, he became what you look for in a student athlete. All 4 nine weeks of his Junior year he made honor roll and has made a 19 on his ACT. This should be his year!”
Xavier Franks, Magee
“A constant receiving threat can be lethal in the smaller classifications, and 6-foot-2, 180-pound Magee receiver Xavier Franks is proof. His fast start in 2019 shot him up the recruiting rankings, according to 247Sports, which currently lists him as the No. 20 prospect in Mississippi and the No. 178 receiver among seniors nationwide.
Franks ate opposing cornerbacks for lunch early in the season, going over 100 yards and catching multiple touchdowns in four of Magee’s first five games in 2019. He finished the season with a stellar 70 catches for 1,001 yards and 13 touchdowns.
He remains uncommitted, but holds offers from eight FBS programs, including Southern Miss, Central Florida, Arkansas State, South Alabama and Tulane, among others.”
