Trieu: Michigan rallies to get commitment from state's No. 1 receiver Andrel Anthony

East Lansing High wide receiver Andrel Anthony was the talk of the recruiting world this week as predictions from analysts quickly changed from Michigan State to Michigan. Anthony’s message was: “Tune in Friday.”

Those who did saw him choose the Wolverines, completing a recruitment that seemed to favor Michigan early, turn toward the Spartans and then back to Michigan. Mel Tucker and the Spartan staff had gotten Anthony on campus prior to COVID-19 shutting down visits and then secured a commitment from friend and teammate Ethan Boyd.

Michigan came back strong with recruits like Markus Allen, and current players like Giles Jackson, getting in contact with Anthony.
