One of Michigan’s top-ranked players in the 2021 class will not be enrolling early, as four-star wide receiver Xavier Worthy confirmed the news on his Twitter account Monday night.
To end all the drama and speculations I am not enrolling early I’ll see y’all on the field ✌— Flash Worthy⚡️❄️ (@Xavierworthy2) January 19, 2021
The 6-foot-1, 160-pounder from Fresno, California signed with Michigan over Alabama after a photo-finish of a recruiting battle. Worthy took a trip to Alabama for the Iron Bowl last fall, putting speculation to how solid his commitment was to the Wolverines. Then he announced he’d be making a final decision on the first day of the early signing period. He put pen to ink on Dec. 16 and signed with U-M.
With him tweeting “I’ll see y’all on the field,” it sounds like he may be participating in his senior season at Central East. With California high school fall sports being pushed back to the spring, this would give Worthy the opportunity to do so.
However, Mike Roach over at the Texas 247Sports site ($) did report about a week ago that Worthy was having issues enrolling at the university, and that the Longhorns could play a major factor if Worthy asks for a release from his letter of intent. The reason for that is thanks to their new head coach, Steve Sarkisian.
This seems to be a fluid situation, so we will update you all when/if we get more.
Worthy is the No. 76 overall player in the 2021 class.
