Auburn offers former Michigan WR Andrel Anthony

Hugh Freeze knows Auburn’s roster needs instant-impact players and the best place for those players is in the transfer portal. The Tigers are looking to add a wide receiver from the portal and on Thursday they extended an offer to former Michigan wide receiver Andrel Anthony.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound wideout spent the past two seasons at Michigan and entered the portal on Jan. 4. He has quickly emerged as one of the top portal targets and already has over a dozen scholarship offers.

His best season was in 2021 when he caught 12 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. His production took a step back in 2022, when he caught seven passes for 80 yards and one touchdown.

The Tiger’s top pass catcher last season was Ja'Varrius Johnson who caught just 26 passes for 493 yards and three touchdowns.

Anthony isn’t the only transfer receiver Auburn is targeting, former Georgia State wideout Jamari Thrash was scheduled to visit Auburn on Thursday.

The Tigers have done a great job addressing their needs in the portal so far, they have landed two of the top offensive tackles in the portal in Gunner Britton and Dillon Wade. They have also added former FIU tight end Rivaldo Fairweather and former Vanderbilt pass-rusher Elijah McAllister.
