The commitment date and other information has been released for one of the most talented running backs in the 2023 recruiting class.
Mark Fletcher, a Top 10 running back of the cycle, will make his announcement on Tuesday, April 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET. It will air on CBS Sports HQ and 247Sports.com. The Florida native has narrowed his list down to 4 options.
Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State are the 3 B1G programs still in consideration for the 6-foot-1, 225-pound ball carrier. The only non-B1G team in the mix is Miami (FL).

Fletcher is listed just outside of the Top 150 overall prospects in the class, per 247Sports. He ranks as No. 153 among all recruits in 2023 and is the No. 8 running back, as well.
A big, physically imposing back for his age. Has already tipped the scales at over 225 pounds. Spent sophomore season serving as the offensive workhorse for an American Heritage team that went 11-2 and won a state title. Runs just as physical as he looks. Powerful enough at this stage to shed multiple tacklers as he fights for yards. Good vision at the line of scrimmage allows him to locate his blocks and clear the first wave.
During the 2021 season at American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale, Fletcher rushed for 779 yards and 13 touchdowns on 110 attempts. He also caught 12 passes for 171 yards.
Over the course of his three seasons at the high school level, Fletcher has totaled 2,509 rushing yards, 472 receiving yards and 36 total touchdowns.
