I swear we already had this, but I can't find it. If someone else can, I'm happy to merge them.

MSU got their first 2023 commit, from 3* in state TE Brennan Parachek.  Chose MSU over ASU, Kentucky, Pitt and Purdue

top 3 players in Michigan look really good next year. QB Dante Moore is an early 5* and with the way he's played so far this year- that will hold imo. And DL/OLB Jalen Thompson and OL Amir Herring will both land in top 100 overall when it's all said and done imo.

MSU seems heavily involved with Moore.  I'm going to continue to be skeptical of highly rated in-state quarterbacks until proven otherwise though.  They don't seem to have any contact with Herring, And I believe they can't recruit Thompson if he wants to enroll early due to hiring Witcher.

Buckeyes have one commit in four star tight end Ty Lockwood out of Tennessee. Ohio has 3 top 100 prospects in the 247 composite, though one is committed to ND and another, Sonny Styles, has some crystal balls to ND. His dad played for OSU, and he goes to Pick Central, which is a suburb of Columbus. But his brother goes to ND. So...

Michigan has never produced a 5* QB in the recruiting sites era (2002-present). Have to go back to Drew Henson in 1998 who was before all the sites for what would be an in-state 5* QB today. Shane Morris was an early 5* but lost his star when the sites realized he wasn't great at football and he wound up being ranked a high 4* & #71 overall in the nation in his class. Devin Gardner was ranked a high 4* & #67 overall in the nation in his class.

Most 5* QB's typically don't work out. The bust rate on those are super high. Moore has actually produced big on the field. Not sure he's the physical specimen that Gardner was or that he has the big arm strength Morris had, but Moore is a more natural passer than Gardner and he's actually produced big-time on the field (unlike Morris) and continues to produce big on the field and continues to improve.

Moore is wide-open imo. Could see him at Michigan or MSU or even leaving the state.

Not a big recruiting guy.  Just here to commend the thread title.

Well that certainly narrows it down

This Dante Moore character has already visited PSU twice.  He's also from the same school as PSU player Jaylen Reed.   PSU isn't usually in the mix for 5 star QBs, but their new OC seems to be changing that around pretty quickly.

PSU definitely in it as is ND. Those two plus the hometown teams look to be in the main 4. LSU & OSU also in it, but seem to be behind the main 4. My complete guess is LSU might be too far and OSU has a logjam of 5* QB's.

Yeah, I'll believe recruits care about that when I see it. They all believe they'll win the job.

It's like the recruits who claim to care about academics and are being recruited by Stanford and Northwestern, and then end up at Ole Miss...

The sad reality is that most of the players we cheer for wouldn't have the academic ability to get into clown college if they couldn't play ball so the academic difference between Stanford/Northwestern and Ole Miss is moot because they aren't smart enough for any of the three.  For that matter Ole Miss is probably realistically better for them because their academic abilities are MUCH closer to those of the real students at Ole Miss than they are to the real students and Stanford/Northwestern.  Ole Miss might actually have classes they could learn from where Stanford/Northwestern would just have to find a place to hide them.
