August 2, 2022
Andrel Anthony

Name: Andrel Anthony
185 lbs.
High school:
East Lansing (MI) East Lansing
Wide receiver
Jersey number:
Last year:
I ranked Anthony #61 and said he would be a backup wide receiver (LINK). He caught 12 passes for 248 yards and 3 touchdowns.
TTB Rating:

I don’t know what Andrel Anthony ate for breakfast on October 30, 2021, but he should eat it more often. Anthony played in three games and had three DNPs before he woke up on Halloween Eve, and then all hell broke loose. In his hometown of East Lansing, he caught 6 passes for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 93-yard score on his first career catch. He had just 6 catches for 93 yards and 1 score over his final six games.

While Anthony showed more ability as a freshman than I expected, he’s part of a very deep receiver squad. With Cornelius Johnson, Ronnie Bell, Roman Wilson, and others, it’s hard to tell how things will shake out. I’m guessing Anthony will continue to take a back seat to a couple of those other guys until they’re gone, but receiver is in good hands at least for 2022 if Anthony is maybe just the fourth or fifth best guy.

Prediction: Backup wide receiver
