Marc Anthony, the 6-foot, 185-pound three-star cornerback from Chandler, Ariz., has gone to four camps already (Michigan, California, Arizona State and Stanford) and says he has a solid top three favorites.
Anthony clearly favors Michigan, Nebraska and California over Boise State, Arizona and Arizona State and all have offered. He says he has 16 total scholarship offers and that Michigan is recruiting him the hardest.
"It's a big football program and I love their tradition," Anthony said of the Wolverines. "They are known for their defense and I did really well at their camp. They offered me afterward and told me they can see me playing as a freshman. I plan to learn everything I need to know because my goal is to play as a true freshman."
Nebraska is another big-time football program that is high on Anthony's list. "They had a great program in the 90's and are coming back," he said. "I like the location because it's away from home and it's all about football there. They recruit a lot in Arizona and I know a few guys who go there already."
Anthony's cousin is Cameron Jordan, who signed to play offensive tackle for Cal in February. "He really likes it, but says it's nothing like high school," Anthony said. "He said the hardest thing is getting used to the schedule.
"I like that Cal is still coming up and I feel like I could go there and help them get to the next level.
"I want a good school academically and find a place that fits me," he said. "I'm looking at the depth charts because I want to play as a true freshman. I'll probably take some official visits early in the year because I'd like to decide mid-to-late in the season."
He reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 1180 SAT.
