The Royals Men's Basketball program is excited to announce the addition of D'Andre Franklin! Coach Huck met with D'Andre last week and went through the signing process with him. Franklin will arrive on campus this coming fall and will be a part of a young team looking to continue growing from this year.
D'Andre comes to us from Wichita, KS. He attended Southeast High School where he graduated in 2016. He then began his collegiate career at Barclay College, playing there in both the '16-'17 and '17-'18 seasons. D'Andre has played for Coach Huck before, as Coach Huck was an Assistant for a season at Barclay before coming to Ecclesia.
D'Andre was Top 5 in steals at Barclay, and was a runner up for Defensive Player of the Year. We are looking forward to him bringing that defensive pressure to the Royals program, and turning that defense into Ecclesia offense. D'Andre said "I am looking forward to a new start at Ecclesia".
"I am excited for the opportunity to coach D'Andre again. His experience, high motor, and defensive tenacity will be a welcome addition" said Coach Tanner Huck.
We look forward to D'Andre joining us in August and watching him play on the court. Welcome to the Royals family!
