Marc Anthony, the 6-foot, 185-pound cornerback from Chandler (Ariz.), has scholarship offers from Boise State, Utah, Washington and Washington State. He favors Boise State and Washington solidly over Michigan, Arizona and California.
"I'm really impressed with Boise State," Anthony said. "They won the Fiesta Bowl and beat Oklahoma. I think that they'll be able to compete in with the Pac-10 teams and are gonna be a regular top 25 team. They can compete with any team in any conference."
His parents' favorite school is Washington. "They really want me to play for a Pac-10 team and from the offers that I have right now they like Washington the most. I don't really know too much about them yet, but I hear they have great coaches and that the area is supposed to be really nice."
Anthony says that growing up, his favorite teams were Arizona and Arizona State. "I've lived in Arizona my whole life, so I've always followed U of A and ASU.
"I like Arizona because they are a young team that is up-and-coming. I like their coaches a lot. I hear from both Arizona State and Arizona regularly, so hopefully they'll offer.
"Most likely I'll make my decision after the season," Anthony said. "I want to see who else offers and be able to take my official visits. I'd like to play in the Pac-10 and get a good education.
"Michigan had some coaches at my school last week and I talked with coach Ron English and he just told me that they'll keep in contact with me this summer and fall. He said to keep up my grades and work hard. I love the tradition at Michigan and that they are ranked every year."
He finished his junior season with 58 tackles and five interceptions (one for a touchdown). Anthony benches 260 pounds, squats 350 and has a 34-inch vertical jump.
"I'm good at covering and I have good run support," he said. "I'm a hard worker and have good hips and am able to twist and turn with the receiver.
"I want to improve my open field tackling and technique," Anthony said. "I'm also trying to get stronger and improve my lower and upper body strength."
He reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 1180 SAT.
