For over a decade, college football fans have been deprived of one of the most iconic game series ever made: NCAA football. This summer, EA Sports is releasing NCAA 25 — finally bringing back the beloved series — and with NIL now a factor in college football, Michigan football quarterback Alex Orji made a major announcement: he’s in the game.

Michigan football quarterback Alex Orji will be in NCAA 25 video game

Alex Orji is a name that all Michigan football fans are familiar with by now — he may very well be taking over for JJ McCarthy as the Wolverines’ starter this fall, hoping to lead Michigan back to the CFP and national title game.

This summer, I’m sure Michigan football will be winning quite a few titles with Orji at the helm; in the new NCAA football video game via EA Sports, that is. Heading into the weekend, the rising junior Michigan quarterback made his involvement in the game official along with numerous other college athletes who plan to participate in a massive nationwide NIL deal.

EA Sports says that the new game will be here over the summer — it will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One – Series S/X.
