Jordan Anthony was one of the most highly-coveted linebackers in the country as a recruit. 247Sports ranked the IMG Academy star as a four-star in its composite rankings system.
Unfortunately, things haven’t really panned out for him in Ann Arbor. After sitting out his true freshman season in 2017, Anthony played sparingly over the last two years.
He’s played in seven games over the last two seasons, recording 15 total tackles and one sack over that time.
Now he’s considering a transfer. As first reported by Detroit Free Press writer Rainer Sabin, Anthony is entering the transfer portal. The Spun has confirmed that his name appears in the portal.
Michigan junior linebacker Jordan Anthony, a former four-star recruit, has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal, according to a source.

It is unclear what programs he may look at, and Anthony can always withdraw from the portal and stay at Michigan.
While he finished his high school career at IMG in Bradenton, Fla., Jordan Anthony is a Maryland native. Head coach Mike Locksley pursued the transfer market pretty aggressively ahead of his first season, and after a 3-9 year, it stands to reason that he would consider doing so again this year. Locksley was not the head coach when Anthony first considered Maryland, but he has extremely strong ties in the state. Naming the Terrapins as a fit is just speculation for now, of course.
We should find out more about what Anthony is considering over the next few weeks.
