ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2021

La Jolla (CA) Bishop’s School quarterback Tyler Buchner was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’2″, 200-pounder who was already committed to Michigan for lacrosse, and now he has a football offer. UCLA has also offered him for football.

Monroeville (PA) Gateway running back Derrick Davis, Jr. was offered by Michigan. He’s a 6’0″, 175-pounder with offers from Penn State, Pitt, and West Virginia. He grew up as an Alabama fan, and his dad played at Michigan State. So . . . I have a hard time seeing this go in Michigan’s direction.

West Lafayette (IN) West Lafayette linebacker Yanni Karlaftis was offered by Michigan. Karlaftis is a 6’3″, 205 lb. outside linebacker, and he’s the brother of 2019 defensive end George Karlaftis, a Purdue commit. If you’ve not familiar with the story of the Karlaftis family, it’s a very interesting – and sad – tale. They grew up in Athens, Greece, after their father got two degrees, an undergrad at Miami-FL and a Ph.D at Purdue. Their dad tragically passed away in 2014 after the family moved from Greece to West Lafayette, IN. Here’s a more in-depth article if you’re interested (LINK).

Preview of 2019 In-State Recruiting: #6-10

Muskegon (MI) Muskegon OT Anthony Bradford (image via Twitter)

Using 247 Composite rankings, I’m doing a rundown of the top players in the state of Michigan for 2019. I posted about the #1-5 players last week (LINK). Here’s the next installment.

6. Anthony Bradford – OT – Muskegon (MI) Muskegon
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 320 lbs.
Notable offers: Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State
Commitment: Uncommitted
247 Composite: 4-star, #23 OT, #236 overall
Analysis: Bradford’s own Hudl page lists him as 6’6″ and 344 lbs., along with a 5.24 forty, a 5.12 shuttle, a 28″ vertical, and a 365 lb. bench press. I’m guessing he’s closer to the 344 than the 320; he is a very large individual and someone who probably needs to reshape his body a little bit. He moves pretty well for a guy his size and has a good first step, though he will need to rework his stance a little bit in college, which may slow him down a little bit when he puts less weight on his hand. He’s a mauler and probably a right tackle, or maybe an offensive guard.

Hit the jump for #7-10.
