Michigan football may have just received good news, as 2021 four-star wide receiver Xavier Worthy announced on Twitter he is delaying his commitment.

Worthy — a 6-foot-1, 160-pounder from Fresno, California — was set to commit June 27. He released a top six list earlier this month of Michigan, Oregon, Georgia, LSU, Alabama and Auburn. All the crystal balls are currently in for Oregon, but those were obviously put in place before this announcement was made.

Josh Gattis has been the point man for Michigan in this recruitment, after offering the scholarship to Worthy back in February. Michigan wide receiver Giles Jackson has also been recruiting Worthy for the Wolverines, and he immediately tweeted at him after the news was shared on Twitter.

This could not be better news for the Wolverines. Oregon is the presumed leader here, and with so many kids committing early in this cycle without visiting any schools, it seemed like a sure thing he’d lock in his commitment to the Ducks.

But all of this will be for nothing if Michigan isn’t able to get him on campus after the in-person recruiting dead period is lifted. The dead period, as of now, is set to expire Aug. 1, but it could be extended yet again if the NCAA feels the need to do so.

For now, all Gattis and company can do is keep communicating with him over FaceTime and hope they are able to get him out to Ann Arbor at some point in the next few months.

Worthy is the No. 32 wide receiver and No. 175 overall player in the 2021 class, according to 247Sports’ composite.
