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.

He’s a 5-star, the #1 inside linebacker, and #19 overall. Some people have pegged him for defensive end, but he says he wants to play a linebacker, and Michigan is recruiting him as a linebacker. He’ll be visiting on April 3.

Dylan Wright – WR – Mesquite (TX) West: Wright is a 6’3″, 192-pounder with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Oklahoma, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #31 wide receiver, and #185 overall.
