The son of Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore will play college football at Florida Atlantic.

Frank Gore Jr., who plays at Killian High School in Miami, made the announcement on social media. He is in the Class of 2020.

A running back like his father, Gore Jr. is 5-foot-8 and ranked as a three-star prospect on the 247Sports composite. He is listed by the service as the No. 74 running back in the nation.

He also had scholarship offers from Kentucky, Southern Mississippi and Chattanooga.

The elder Gore played collegiately at Miami (2001-04), but he tweeted his support for his son’s choice to play for coach Lane Kiffin at FAU.

“Real Proud!! #Blessings,” he wrote.

The elder Gore ranks fourth in NFL history with 14,748 rushing yards.
