Michigan WR commit shows support for coach Jim Harbaugh during tumultuous year
Not everyone in Michigan wants to see Jim Harbaugh leave the Wolverines.

The timing is a bit odd, especially considering Michigan didn’t play over the weekend due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
Still, it has to be nice for Harbaugh to have support coming from a key area in the midst of a down year. The Wolverines are 2-4, with their only wins coming vs. Minnesota in Week 1 and in triple overtime vs. Rutgers.
Anthony is a 3-star receiver from East Lansing. According to 247Sports Composite rankings, he is the No. 81 receiver and the No. 523 overall player in the country.
Despite the tough year on the field, Harbaugh and his staff have done an outstanding job on the recruiting trail. Michigan currently owns the No. 9 class in the country and the No. 2 class in the Big Ten for 2021, per 247Sports.
Michigan is currently scheduled to play Ohio State in the final game of the regular season, although that game is in danger of not being played due to COVID-19.
The Wolverines will also play a game on Dec. 19 as part of the Big Ten’s Championship Weekend. Matchups for that week are still to be determined.
