Jaylan Franklin’s top 5 has a very Big Ten flavor.
The 6-foot-4, 192-pound Rockwood (Mich.) Carlson High prospect is a 3-star athlete on the 247Sports Composite. On Wednesday he listed his top 5 schools: Michigan State, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt and Pitt.

247Sports rates him the No. 15 player in Michigan and the No. 53 athlete in the Class of 2018; some teams are recruiting him as a linebacker, while others like him at tight end.
Michigan State offered Franklin back in February, and he called the team his “No. 1” shortly after. Both predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball have him going to Northwestern, and both were made 2 weeks ago.
