Franklin turns on the Jet Skis

The other day when UCLA hoops coach Ben Howland was watching practice, he noticed a guy that had a tremendous burst from the running back position. That running back was Johnathan Franklin. He showed all who were there on that play why he earned the nickname, "Jet Ski". Franklin spent a few moments with after practice recently. You are participating in your second training camp. How are you feeling?

Franklin: "I feel good. I'm getting all the rust out. It's been awhile, but I'm feeling good and getting my rhythm back. I'm feeling good and I'm feeling good about the system." How do you think you are doing so far in camp?

Franklin: "I think I am doing pretty well over the first few days. I'm understanding the playbook a lot more. I'm understanding the system. The game speed, I still have a ways to go, but so far I am pleased where I am right now."
