Berger transferred to Michigan State after spending the last two years at Wisconsin. In two seasons with the Badgers, the running back totaled 389 yards and 3 touchdowns in 7 games.
Harrison played a role in Ohio State’s offense in 2021 but wasn’t much of a target until the Rose Bowl Game, stepping in for Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson. In the win over Utah, the freshman hauled in 6 catches for 71 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Anthony had a similar impact as Harrison during the 2021 season at Michigan. The freshman was involved in the offense throughout the year, but his shining moment was in the loss to Michigan State. That afternoon, Anthony caught 6 passes for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Watching all three of these players next season should be a lot of fun.
