After landing Ruiz and Irving-Bey on Monday, five-star (Rivals) outside linebacker from IMG Academy Jordan Anthony commits to the Michigan. He is six foot-220 pounds and ranked as the #6 OLB and #107 player in the nation, according to the 24/7 sports composite.

Michigan seemed like the ideal landing spot for Anthony since the beginning of his recruitment. With a 100% crystal ball prediction on 24/7 sports, this commitment came to no surprise to Michigan fans. Anthony was down to five schools from 24 total offers, which included Michigan, Maryland, Auburn, Penn State and Oklahoma. Michigan was the clear front runner, but Oklahoma made a late push for Anthony towards the end of his recruitment.

This is Michigan’s 25th commitment for this 2017 class. There are still several top targets to announce in the next few weeks, which includes Najee Harris, Chuck Filiaga, Aubrey Solomon, and Drew Singleton. This 2017 class for the Wolverines can be towards 30 commitments with lots of star power.
