Per 247Sports, he is rated as the No. 5 running back in the country and the No. 2 prospect from the state of Arizona. He is currently tipped to choose between UCLA and Ohio State.The Longhorns may need to wait a while to hear from any of the 2021 recruits though.

Bengaluru/Thiruvananthapuram: Union Minister for State for External Affairs V. Murlaeedharan on Sunday dismissed media reports which claimed that former Kerala track-and-field star Anju Bobby George had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during a meeting in Bengaluru. Speaking to the media, Muraleedharan said there was nothing political about the meeting which took place on Saturday. “I have had a long association with Anju and her husband Robert Bobby George. Yesterday, I had a party programme in Bengaluru. She called me and asked if we could meet to which I agreed. When she came to the programme in which I was taking part, the event was about to begin. So I invited her to the dais, as she is an internationally acclaimed athlete,” said Muraleedharan, the only leader from Kerala in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.

She was talking about her institute,” he added. Former long jumper George (42) hails from Kottayam in Kerala and is presently employed with the Customs in Bengaluru. In 2003, She made history by becoming the first Indian athlete to win a medal at the World Championships when she won the bronze in Paris with a leap of 6.70m. She achieved her personal best of 6.83m, which is still a national record, at the 2004 Athens Olympics which fetched her the fifth position.
