One of the nation’s top recruits has three Big Ten teams in his top 5.
Donovan Peoples-Jones, a 5-star WR from Detroit’s Cass Technical, included Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State among his final teams, also listing Florida and Florida State. He shared his top-5 list in a tweet Sunday afternoon.
“First, I want to thank God for blessing me with all of my abilities and opportunities. I would also like to thank each coach who has taken their time to recruit me along this process,” Peoples-Jones wrote in the tweet. “I value the connections and relationships that I’ve encountered throughout this time. It has also been fun visiting so many new places. After praying on it, I will be moving forward with these select group of universities.”
