Michigan has received a commitment from class of 2016 point guard Xavier Simpson (Lima, Ohio).

Simpson is a four-star prospect and the 13th-ranked point guard in the nation, per the 247 Composite.

"They entered the race about a few weeks ago, maybe three or four weeks ago," Simpson told Zach Fleer of Prep Hoops Ohio. "I like Michigan's coaching staff, me and coach Beilein have a great relationship. When I took my unofficial there, it felt like the right college for me."

He is Michigan's fourth commitment of the 2016 class along with guard Ibi Watson and big men Austin Davis and Jon Teske.
