East Lansing WR with 10 B1G offers commits to Michigan
Michigan closed out the month of July on a high note on the recruiting front.
Friday, the Wolverines landed their 21st verbal commitment in the 2021 recruiting class, plucking a 3-star wide receiver out of Michigan State’s back yard. Andrel Anthony Jr., a 6-foot-2, 175-pound East Lansing native, gave his pledge to Michigan, becoming the fourth in-state player to join Jim Harbaugh and company.
Anthony posted a message on Twitter to announce his decision.
“Without further ado…at this point, I will be continuing my football and academic career at…the University of Michigan,” Anthony wrote on Twitter.
