Two Big Ten programs are still in the hunt for a prospect who could fill a big hole, both figuratively and literally.
Fred Hansard, a 4-star defensive tackle from The Hun School of Princeton (N.J.), released a Top 9 video via Twitter on Monday that included Michigan State and Penn State.

At 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds, Hansard would add a large body to the defensive trenches for either of these programs.
Hansard is rated as the No. 10 defensive tackle prospect in the Class of 2017 and the No. 3 prospect from the state of New Jersey.
