Wolverines land 2020 quarterback commitment

With the 2019 recruiting class now mostly signed for Michigan, the Wolverines on Friday added an important piece for next year’s group. Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle quarterback J.D. Johnson announced on Twitter his decision to commit to the Maize and Blue.

“I am ecstatic to announce that I am committing to play football at the University of Michigan,” Johnson wrote. “I want to thank God for this opportunity, my parents who have provided awesome support through this process, and my coaches and teammates at Pinnacle HS. I am excited about pursuing excellence, both in the classroom and on the field at the University of Michigan.”

Announcing on Dec. 6 that he had received a scholarship offer from the Wolverines, Johnson visited Ann Arbor unofficially a week and a half later, attending a Michigan basketball game and checking out the football team’s bowl practices.

Standing in at 6-4, 190 pounds, Johnson also carried scholarship offers from South Carolina, Arizona, Oregon State and Colorado State. Rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals, he has not yet been evaluated by other ranking sources.

Johnson is Michigan’s fifth pledge for the 2020 recruiting class, joining wide receiver Kalil Branham, cornerback Andre Seldon, tight end Nick Patterson and linebacker Cornell Wheeler.
