Andrel Anthony makes another big play

When people say but “He’s only a three-star recruit” Andrel Anthony is another name you can point as to why, sometimes, that doesn’t matter.

Anthony certainly didn’t look like a three-star recruit when he tore up Michigan State for six receptions for 155 yards and two touchdowns. He was the Wolverines best receiver and he should continue to see the ball.

Even though Anthony was impressing in practice — making a play per day — according to Jim Harbaugh, he told The Wolverine he still had to learn the game but that it has started to slow down for him.

"“Most definitely [not ready],” he said. “I’d say not even just from a physical perspective, but mentally. It’s just like I know so much more now. I felt like I was ready week one, but when the game happened it was like, ‘oh, this is different.’  What really helped me, as well, was last week against Northwestern, being able to go in the second half and play the whole thing.”"

Both Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy looked for Anthony last week, who even received praise from Braylon Edwards on Twitter. It was justified and Michigan finally has a wide receiver worthy of wearing the No. 1 again.

And Saturday, Anthony will show us why he’s wearing that number again. I’m not predicting him to have a game like he did against Michigan State, although he looks like an explosive play waiting to happen. I do believe he’ll catch a few passes and make at least one big play down the field.

I also have a feeling he catches another touchdown.
