Scout 100 receiver Tarik Black's senior season did not start until mid September, but less than a month into the season he is showing why Michigan, Notre Dame, Auburn, Stanford, Alabama and UCLA are each recruiting him hard.
The 6-foot-3 1/2, 206-pound Black, who stars at Cheshire (Conn.) Academy, is quick out of his breaks, and he is elusive in the open field. Black has plus ball skills, and he refined his route-running ability. (Highlights are in video player at top of page.)
Black, who is the top receiver in the East and No. 13 nationally in the 2017 class, also has soft hands, the courage to go over the middle, the speed to stretch the field and he knows how to use his body to shield defenders.
Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown will be at Cheshire Academy's game at Andover (Mass.) Phillips Academy on Saturday.
Black already made official visits to Michigan and Auburn, and he is slated to officially visit Alabama on Nov. 26 for the game against Auburn. His father said visits to either Notre Dame, Stanford and/or UCLA are still in the works, and Black plans to commit at his all-America game in early January.
