The 2017 college football recruiting class is loaded with talent, and one of those talented players is four-star wide receiver Tarik Black. He has been getting interest from many of the top schools in the country, and those schools include both the Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes. Obviously that duo is one of the biggest rivalries in college sports as well, and Black tweeted out that he will be attending the game between the two this season.
Black is going to get to know a lot about both teams, although Michigan will be the home team for the game. They are going to be putting the full-court press on the talented wide receiver, and trying to figure out a way to sway him towards them over the Ohio State powerhouse.
That isn’t going to be an easy task, but Jim Harbaugh has accomplished tougher things throughout his career.
At 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, there is no question that Black has the ability to become a star at the next level. He has above average athleticism to go with a very strong pair of hands and there aren’t going to be many defensive backs at the next level that can hang with him. Ohio State will offer him the most intriguing place to compete for a championship, while the Wolverines will offer him the opportunity to help rebuild a program back to dominance.
These two schools are not the only teams interested in Black, as Alabama has also thrown an offer his way. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him decide against the Big Ten conference in order to join Nick Saban in the SEC.
No matter what ends up happening, this years Ohio State vs. Michigan game has yet another piece of intrigue added to the mix. Black has a tough decision to make, but the winner of this game could very well sway his decision.
