Football Recruiting Notebook

InsideTheVille.com's football recruiting notebook is jampacked with updates on 6-5 WR Marlon Anthony, three-star DT Eric McDaniel, four-star OL Jeremiah Sirles, Florida DB Jordan Dangerfield and two-star linebacker Ryan Mosby.

Marlon Anthony, a 6-5, 185-pound wide receiver, certainly stands out above the crowd. With ten scholarship offers, Anthony also has no shortage of college options.

One of the top 125 wide receiver prospects in the nation, Anthony told InsideTheVille.com that Indiana, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Auburn are recruiting him the hardest.

Anthony, who has no official visits set up right now, said he's planning to schedule trips to at least two schools this fall – Mississippi State and Indiana.

"I doubt I take all five visits," added Anthony.

Though Indiana gets mention from Anthony, the Marietta (Ga.) Kell standout wide receiver might be leaning toward playing in the SEC.

"Indiana is a good program but Arkansas and Mississippi State are in the SEC and I just want to go to an SEC school," Anthony said.

Another school Anthony is considering is Louisville. "I don't know that much about Louisville but I know they had that one good year," Anthony said. "I do have an interest in them."

As a junior, Anthony caught 60 catches for 969 yards and ten touchdowns. He'll make a solid possession receiver who can make plays over the top of defenders at the next level. "My strength is catching over people because I'm so tall," Anthony said. "I'm not really a speedy receiver so I have to rely on my hands. I'm looking for a program where I get along well with the coaches and an offense that throws the ball a lot."

Commitment watch: Calhoun (Ga.) defensive tackle Eric McDaniel recently named Louisville his visit and told InsideTheVille.com last week that an upcoming visit to UofL could result in a commitment. Well, as of last weekend, McDaniel had not made a trip to Louisville and told InsideTheVille.com Sunday night that no visit has been scheduled. McDaniel also said he won't make any decision until he makes a visit.

The commitment watch for Eric McDaniel goes on.

Louisville also appears in good shape with four-star offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles. Sirles, 6-8, 300, lists the Cardinals in his Top 4.

"I do have a pretty set list of favorites right now. Currently, Oregon is my number one," Sirles told Scout.com recently. "Then it goes Nebraska, Louisville and then Arizona State."

Jordan Dangerfield attended Louisville's camp two weeks ago hoping to land an offer from the Cardinals. But it looks like Louisville wants to see what some other cornerbacks decide before sending a scholarship offer the 5-11, 175-pound Dangerfield's way.

"They said that I will probably end up getting one during the season because they want to see what the other corners they offered already do first," Dangerfield said in a text message.

Ryan Mosby, a 6-1, 212-pound linebacker from Rockwall (TX) Heath, told InsideTheVille.com last month that Louisville was the leader for his services. But it doesn't appear the Cardinals made an offer. So the two-star prospect made a commitment to Iowa State over the weekend.

Mosby is a teammate of Louisville targets Drew Hollingshead, Austin Moss and Kendial Lawrence.
