Per Pioneer Press Twincities.com "Carol City star Ricky Jean-Francois stunned everyone by not showing up for his signing BY MANNY NAVARRO Wednesday, Carol City defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois pulled what could be the county's most dramatic signing day moment when he didn't show up for the ceremony at all. Jean-Francois, a blue-chip All-American defensive end and The Herald's co-Athlete of the Year in Miami-Dade last year, never made it to campus, coaches said, despite telling them repeatedly he was on his way. Jean-Francois could not be reached for comment Wednesday night, but his mother, Zora Jones, said her son would not be making a decision on college until ``later.'' Carol City coach Walt Frazier said Jean-Francois had two scholarships -- one from LSU and another from South Florida -- waiting for him on a desk in the library. Neither of those programs had Jean-Francois on its list of signees released late Wednesday. Frazier said Jean-Francois had recently received an improved test score and ''only needed to raise his GPA a few points'' to reach NCAA admissions standards."
