We have daily coverage of Michigan recruiting here at Land of 10, where readers learn inside information and get a better grasp of what a recruit brings to campus as a player.
But what do they bring as a person?
In this week’s edition of Beyond the Game, we chat with Michigan commit Jordan Anthony. From the nation’s No. 2 high school football team, IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., Anthony is a 4-star linebacker, according to the 247Sports.com composite.
Known for his speed and aggressiveness at the position, Anthony can lay the lumber with some elite blitz talent. But, outside of the gridiron, who exactly is Jordan Anthony?
Let’s find out. Here’s out chat with Jordan Anthony:
Land of 10: “What’s your favorite music to listen to?”
Anthony: “I don’t really have a specific artist that I listen to. It all depends on what I’m doing.
Land of 10: OK, say it’s before a game. What’s your go-to pregame music?
Anthony: “I like to listen to Wocka Flocka Flame (laughs). All his music just gets you so pumped up.”
Land of 10: I know he said he wanted to run for president. Would you vote for Flocka?
Anthony: “Definitely wouldn’t go that far with it (laughs).”
Land of 10: What about another hip-hop artist that’s considering running for president – Kanye West?
Anthony: “I don’t know. He goes on too many rants.”
Land of 10: Do you have a secret talent?
Anthony: “I would say that art is one thing that a lot of people don’t know I do. I love to draw.”
Land of 10: What kind of things do you usually draw?
Anthony: “I like to draw people the most, but I’ll draw anything. I’m still trying to perfect painting.”
Land of 10: Have you ever drawn a picture of Jim Harbaugh?
Anthony: “Not yet … could be coming soon, though.”
Land of 10: What’s your funniest Jim Harbaugh story?
Anthony: “I don’t know. Maybe there are (too many), I can’t think of one that’s the funniest right now. ”
Land of 10: Do you have any specific takes on social issues going on right now?
Anthony: “Not really. I try to stay away from making social media comments about stuff like that.”
Committing on Dec. 22, Anthony became Michigan’s 25th commitment of its 2017 class. He will enroll in the summer to begin his college football career in Ann Arbor.
