Michigan football has added a highly touted receiver to its 2019 class.
Greenwich (Conn.) Brunswick School 4-star receiver Cornelius Johnson committed to the Wolverines on Wednesday, announcing his decision in a ceremony at his school.
Johnson picked Michigan over Penn State, Stanford, Notre Dame and Alabama.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect is the No. 256 overall player in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, and he will be a participant in the Army All-American Bowl.
As a senior, Johnson caught 45 passes for 779 yards and 11 touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. He was named Connecticut’s Gatorade Player of the Year.
Johnson took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend, one week after taking an official to Penn State.
He’s the fourth receiver in the Wolverines’ class, joining Oakley (Ca.) Freedom four-star Giles Jackson, Stuart (Fla.) Martin County three-star George Johnson III and Lakewood (Oh.) St. Edward three-star Quintel Kent. Everett (Mass.) three-star athlete Mike Sainristil could also play receiver.
Johnson is the highest-ranked receiver U-M has successfully recruited over the past two classes. He was the second player Wednesday to announce his decision to attend U-M, joining 5-star safety Daxton Hill.
