Wolverines Lands No. 1 WR recruit in Michigan
Michigan lost out on the top defensive tackle in the state earlier this week, but they made up for it on Friday by landing the best high school receiver in the Mitten State. Andrel Anthony Jr. somewhat surprisingly chose to play for Coach Harbaugh instead of heavy favorite Michigan State.
Anthony is a 3-star recruit out of East Lansing High School, just blocks away from the Spartans' campus. He is ranked as the No. 529 player in the class of 2021 and the No. 12 player overall in Michigan.
Anthony was a first-team all-state selection in Division 3-4 by the Associated Press, tallying 54 catches for 954 yards and nine touchdowns. The latter two are single-season school records at East Lansing.

The Buckeyes have a history of some extremely talented post players and they are hoping they identified another one. Joe Hurlburt is a 6'10", 220 pounds and ridiculously athletic for his size.
Hurlburt plays at Elderlin High School in North Dakota. According to 247Sports, the scholarship offer from Ohio State is Hurlburt's ninth such offer. Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Nebraska are the other Big Ten programs that would love to have Hurlburt suit up for them in a couple years. The 4-star recruit is the top-ranked prep player in North Dakota and is considered the No. 7 center and No. 47 overall recruit in the Class of 2022.
