Xavier Worthy, Ex-Wolverine

We learned a few days ago that Fresno (CA) Central East wide receiver Xavier Worthy would not be making good on his pledge to play for the Wolverines. Despite signing his National Letter of Intent, he requested out of it and will presumably be granted that request. In modern times it’s not worth the public relations hit to reject those requests.

I haven’t posted a visitors list in a long time, because visitors haven’t been allowed to visit Michigan since last winter. And they’re still not allowed to visit campus, at least not while having any contact with the coaching staff.

But there is a group of recruits who plan to come to Ann Arbor and hang out together on their own.

2021

Raheem Anderson II – C – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Anderson is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Andrel Anthony – WR – East Lansing (MI) East Lansing: Anthony is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Tristan Bounds – OT – Wallingford (CT) Choate Rosemary Hall: Bounds is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Visitors: Michigan vs. Michigan State

Fresno (CA) Central East WR Xavier Worthy

Some visitors will be headed to Michigan this weekend for the clash against Michigan State. No contact with coaches is allowed while on campus, so this is essentially like taking an unguided vacation to Ann Arbor. But it’s still noteworthy, since any visitors have to pay for the trip themselves.

2021

Cristian Dixon – WR – Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei: Dixon is committed to Michigan (LINK). He’s a 4-star, the #36 wide receiver, and #207 overall.

Xavier Worthy – WR – Fresno (CA) Central East: Worthy is committed to Michigan (LINK). He’s a 4-star, the #11 wide receiver, and #71 overall.
