Michigan lands first 2018 commit, a four-star linebacker from Ohio
Recruiting season apparently never stops in Ann Arbor.
Just over a week after the Wolverines hosted a Antwuan Johnson, sophomore linebacker from Ohio, they got a commitment from him. Johnson announced his decision via Twitter on Monday night:

According to 247sports, Johnson is a four-star inside linebacker. He’s rated the third-best inside linebacker in the 2018 class and is 247sports’ 82nd player overall. He’s also the fourth-rated player in the state of Ohio.
Johnson reportedly had offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Kentucky and Louisville. He was also being recruited by Iowa and Ohio State.
The 6-1, 210-pound Springfield, Ohio native is the third recruit from the 2018 class to commit to a B1G school. Nebraska got a commitment from in-state four-star linebacker Brandon Jurgens and Penn State landed five-star defensive end Micah Parsons.
