Anthony announced Wednesday night that he had entered the transfer portal after two seasons at Michigan, and now has an offer from Big Ten rival PSU.
Since entering the portal, Anthony has been offered by Cal, Oklahoma, Miami, Pitt and South Carolina along with Penn State.
Anthony came to Michigan as a three-star recruit from East Lansing, choosing Michigan despite growing up in Michigan State territory. Over two seasons playing for Jim Harbaugh, Anthony won two Big Ten championships and was a part of two College Football Playoff teams. But he didn’t have great individual success in Ann Arbor. After a promising true freshman season that ended with Anthony picking up 248 yards and three touchdowns on 12 receptions, Anthony’s numbers regressed in Year 2. He caught just seven balls for 80 yards and a score.
Anthony is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds.
Even after former NC State player Devin Carter committed to Penn State the night the team won the Rose Bowl, Penn State is still looking for receivers from the transfer portal. The program is losing Mitchell Tinsley (out of eligibility) and Parker Washington (NFL Draft). Although KeAndre Lambert-Smith went off against Utah, with three catches for 124 yards and a Rose Bowl record 88-yard touchdown, Lambert-Smith hasn’t been a top two receiver in his three years at Penn State.

It would be beneficial for Penn State to have as many options possible for presumed QB Drew Allar to throw to in 2023 and beyond. Penn State would hate to have Allar not succeed partially due to a lack of reliable targets.
