Incoming freshman wide receiver Xavier Worthy has announced on his social media that he has requested his release from his signed letter of intent with the University of Michigan. The former 4-star recruit in the class of 2021 ultimately chose the Wolverines over the Alabama Crimson Tide by signing with Michigan this past December.

Worthy received an offer from Alabama in May of 2020 and was able to take an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa in November for the 42-13 victory over the Auburn Tigers. Worthy was rated as the No. 8 receiver in the class and the No. 4 overall recruit in the state of California by the 247Sports Composite.

The 6-foot-1 receiver is out of Central East High School in Fresno, California and made the All-American Bowl roster this past year. He is known as a crisp route-runner with high-end speed.

The young receiver did not enroll early at Michigan but he did spend part of the new semester in Ann Arbor. He was the third highest rated recruit in the current class for the Maize and Blue.

While being recruited at Alabama, Steve Sarkisian and Holomon Wiggins served as his primary recruiters. Sarkisian is no the head coach at Texas and is rumored to be a potential destination for Worthy.
