Frank was prep teammates with Jonathan India and Lucius Fox, forming one of the best high school infields ever. Frank has gone on to find success at Florida Atlantic, where he has been an indispensable player since arriving on campus. He moved behind the plate as a freshman to fill a hole when FAU's starting catcher was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and as a sophomore moved back to his natural shortstop. After a strong season, he became the first Owl since 2005 to be invited to USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team and became a regular for the team, playing third base and left field. Frank is a steady hitter with a mature approach at the plate. He makes consistent contact and has solid raw power that presently plays as doubles pop and should turn into more homers in time. He is a fringy runner. Frank's versatility helps his profile and he can play nearly anywhere on the diamond. He fits best as an offensive second baseman, but could also end up as a super-utility player.
