One of the top tight end recruits in the country is still thinking about three Big Ten teams.
4-star Jeremy Ruckert included Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin in a top-5 list he shared on Saturday. Ruckert also listed Alabama and Florida State, but he said a Notre Dame visit in March could impact his recruitment.
“I have put a lot of thought into this and I want to mainly focus on these 5 schools going into my senior off season,” Ruckert said.
