Anthony was all the rage in the state of Michigan for the past two months, but Michigan made a late push and was able to shift the momentum in his favor this week.

Anthony ultimately dismissed the hometown Spartans and gave Michigan another promise of an explosive offensive weapon.

Michigan now has 21 engagements in its 2021 recruiting class.

Anthony joins Rivals100 Junior linebacker Colson, Rivals100 quarterback JJ McCarthy, Rivals100 offensive lineman Giovanni El-Hadi, Rivals100 tight end Louis Hansen, Rivals250 offensive lineman Raheem Anderson, Rivals250 offensive line Greg Crippen, Rivals250 defensive end Quintin Somerville, Rivals250 wide receiver Cristian Dixon, four-star defensive end Kechaun Bennett, three-star linebacker Casey Phinney, All-American specialist Tommy Doman, cornerback three stars Ja’Den McBurrows, three-star wide receivers Markus Allen and Xavier Worthy, three-star safety Rod Moore, three – star offensive tackle Tristan Bounds, three-star linebackers Tyler McLaurin and Jaydon Hood and defensive linemen TJ Guy and Dominick Giudice.
