Downey (Ca.) outside linebacker Darrian Franklin is fast becoming one of the biggest recruiting targets on the West Coast. Via Adam Gorney of Rivals, Franklin has three favorites in the USC Trojans, UCLA Bruins and the Michigan Wolverines.
USC: The Trojans are already loading up on some big prospects in terms of upgrading the overall pass rush and rebuilding the front seven. Ann Arbor (Mi.) Skyline outside linebacker Daelin Hayes, Torrance (Ca.) North outside linebacker Mique Juarez and Bellevue (Wa.) defensive end Isaac Garcia are the first three commitments in this class to the Trojans.
UCLA: The Bruins have one good defensive prospect already in Breland Brandt, and the Bruins want to continue building up that defensive depth so they stay the deepest group in the conference.
Michigan: Michigan wants to take all your West Coast recruits. Jim Harbaugh is going to be hitting the California trail and his Western connections hard as he tries to rebuild
