DEARBORN - The state of Michigan's highest-ranked uncommitted football prospect for the class of 2011 continued to indicate that there are no leaders in his recruitment during last week's Detroit Free Press Dream Team Banquet, at the Dearborn Inn.
In an exclusive interview with SpartanMag.com, Anthony Zettel, a two-way lineman from West Branch Ogemaw Heights High School, said he feels strongly about the two in-state schools that are pursuing him.
"I feel really strong with them," Zettel said, of Michigan and Michigan State. "I have visited them, obviously, a lot more than Iowa and Penn State. I feel a lot more comfortable with them but I'm taking everything into account, all the pros and cons.
"It's all about even right now. It's going good. I'm trying to get it limited down, but it's tough. You build a relationship with all the coaches and it's tough. It's a hard decision."
Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio was the keynote speaker of the Dream Team Banquet, which annually honors the top high school players in Michigan.
"It was an honor to be in the presence of Coach Dantonio's speech," Zettel said. "Good guy. Really good coach and Big Ten champion."
