- Anthony Morelli (6-5, 210 lbs., 4.7 in the 40) from Pittsburgh, Pa., Penn Hills. His father recently told PacWestFootball.com, "Florida State is probably his top school and we know they need a quarterback. Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan and Pitt would round out his top five ..." Note: I (Tom Beaver) spent a couple days chatting with Anthony's father at the Elite 11 camp last summer. While Anthony told me, "I'm very interested in Michigan, definitely," father-Greg made it clear that they would pay close attention to depth charts at top schools with the noting that Anthony would go where he had a good chance to play early. Anthony is being raised by his father, who would move to wherever Anthony attended college. Morelli is one of Tom Lemming's early top six quarterbacks, and one of MaxEmfinger.com's top nine dropback quarterbacks.

- Bryan Hoyer (6-5, 190 lbs.) from Cleveland St. Ignatius., Hoyer attended the recent OSU game Junior Day. He also attended the U-M/Wisconsin football game last fall. Hoyer is similar to Brady Quinn last year at this time, because he has only been a starter for one year. As a junior he threw for 1,922 yards. Hoyer is a top 20 Ohio junior (as Quinn was at this time last year) who could jump way up fast after the spring Nike camp and 'summer camp circuit'.

- Earnest Jackson (6-2 1/2, 190 lbs., 4.5 in the 40) from Birmingham Detroit Country Day. As a junior the 'run-pass' quarterback completed 68-of-133 passes on the year for 1,310 yards and 13 touchdowns in 10 games. He also has rushed for 401 yards on 70 carries.
