High praise is coming out of Ann Arbor for some Wolverine receivers. Wide Receivers coach Ron Bellamy laid some comparisons on Andrel Anthony, Ronnie Bell, and Darrius Clemons.

And they happen to be toward Michigan stars of the past.

Woah. Braylon Edwards? The former wide receiver standout won the Biletnikoff Award in 2004 and was a unanimous All-American selection. Edwards recorded three-straight 1,000 yard seasons from 2002-2004. Overall, he finished his Michigan career with 252 receptions, 3,541 yards and 39 touchdowns.

Anthony is only a sophomore entering 2022. The 6-foot-2 wideout caught 12 passes for 248 yards and 3 touchdowns as a freshman. Anthony’s career-high came against Michigan State with 6 receptions for 155 touchdowns and 2 touchdowns.

Clearly the potential is there. Maybe Bellamy is looking to raise Anthony’s confidence?

Bellamy forwarded another comparison to Steve Breaston for Bell and Jason Avant for Clemons. Both former Wolverines rank in the top 6 in career receptions in Michigan history.

Bell suffered a season-ending knee injury against Western Michigan last season. His best statistical season thus far with Michigan came in 2019 when he caught 48 balls for 758 yards and 1 touchdown.

Clemons is less of an unknown as a freshman. The Oregon native arrived to Michigan as a 4-star recruit by 247 Sports out of Westview High School.

Bellamy is certainly setting a high bar on his Michigan trio.
