Jack Pugh is one of the most sought-after tight ends in Big Ten territory this recruiting cycle.

The 4-star prospect is the 13th highest-rated TE and No. 315 overall prospect in the 2021 class, according to the 247Sports composite score. At 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Pugh has the size and frame to provide an instant impact for the schools he chooses.

The Ohio native announced Thursday that Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Penn State, Michigan State and Cincinnati have made the cut for his top six schools.

But Pugh did make it clear he's still open to more offers, as seen in his announcement below:

The overall expectation, as things currently stand, is that Pugh will end up with the Badgers. He's already taken two visits to Wisconsin and has raved about his time in Madison.

But Michigan is picking up plenty of steam after the four-star TE's visit with Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines in early March. Pugh's recruitment will likely come down to Wisconsin and Michigan.

Pugh is one of the under-the-radar prospects who has seen his stock improve drastically this off-season. He'll likely continue to improve his stock throughout the year - especially if he's able to put together a productive senior year later this fall.
