Pitt Extends Offer to Michigan Transfer WR Andrel Anthony, Jr.



Another free agent wide receiver has entered Pitt’s radar.

On Thursday, Pitt extended an offer to Andrel Anthony, Jr., who recently entered the transfer portal after having played for Jim Harbaugh and Michigan.

Immediately after entering the portal, the talented wideout from East Lansing, Michigan received offers from Pitt, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Penn State, California and Indiana.

Anthony (6-foot-2, 175 pounds) was a member of Michigan’s Class of 2021 and selected the Wolverines over other offers from Michigan State, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa State, Maryland, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State, Purdue, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

In two seasons at Michigan, Anthony had 19 receptions for 328 yards and four touchdowns. In fact, Anthony’s first reception at Michigan was a 93-yard touchdown, which still ranks as the second-longest passing play in Michigan history.

“To say I loved playing at the University of Michigan would be an understatement,” wrote Anthony. “I’d like to say that this was not an easy decision at all. I have made friendships and relationships that will last forever. Thank you, Coach Harbaugh, for believing in me since I was a 13-year-old kid at summer camp. Thank you, teammates, especially the ‘crew’, for taking me in pushing me every day. I love each and every one of y’all and couldn’t have asked for a better group to come in and go on this journey with.”

Anthony is one of many transfer wide receivers that Pitt has offered over the last few weeks. Despite signing three wideouts in this year’s recruiting class, it’s obvious that Pat Narduzzi plans on bringing in some veteran help at that position.
