Michigan lands commitment from four-star WR
Jim Harbaugh has a loaded 2016 recruiting class. At the skill positions, however, Michigan isn’t overflowing with four-star recruits yet.
Well, the Wolverines got one on Saturday.
A day after making an official visit to Ann Arbor, four-star 2016 wide receiver Nate Johnson gave his commitment to Michigan.
After talking it over with my family I've decided to make the decision to commit to The University Of Michigan〽〽!!! #GoBlue

The 5-11, 175-pound wideout will add to Michigan’s sixth-ranked 2016 recruiting class.
Johnson had been considering the likes of Miami (FL), Northwestern and Vanderbilt. The Thompson’s Station, Tennessee native had official visits lined up at all three schools for January.
Instead, he became the second wide receiver to commit to Michigan’s 2016 class.
“It was a gut feeling and a no brainer,” Johnson told 247sports.com.
Michigan is also still targeting four-star wide receiver Dylan Crawford and the top 2016 running back, Kareem Walker. Michigan is the perceived favorite to land Walker, who is expected to announce his college decision on Friday.
