Wise DE Giovani Francois down to FIU, Temple

By Josh Barr

Defensive end Giovani Francois, the Florida native who joined Wise's roster for its final five games of the season, is deciding between scholarship offers from Florida International and Temple.

"I'll probably make a decision Monday or Tuesday," said Francois, who is 6 feet 2 and 230 pounds. "Both are good schools. You've got Miami, which is a little bit palm trees and stuff and then there is Temple, which is completely different. You've got one program that has been up for 10 years and a program that has been up for 100. I'm trying to decide which is best for me."

Francois visited Temple this past weekend and also has taken an official visit to Cincinnati, but all indications are that he will head back to his home state and play for Florida International.

Wise Coach DaLawn Parrish expects to have four players sign letters-of-intent next week. Defensive back Deandre Smith has committed to James Madison and fullback Kevin Staton to North Carolina Central. Safety Ryan Smith is deciding between Old Dominion and North Carolina Central.
