Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines added a member to their 2016 football recruiting class on Saturday in the form of wide receiver Nate Johnson out of Thompson's Station, Tennessee, according to 247 Sports' Barton Simmons.

Johnson is a three-star prospect and the 88th-ranked wide receiver in the class, per 247's Composite Rankings.

He was offered by Michigan earlier this week on Dec. 9 and the staff was able to secure an official visit from him for this weekend. From there, it looks like he pulled the trigger almost as soon as he hit campus.

"It was a gut feeling and a no brainer," Johnson said to Simmons.

With his commitment, he becomes the third wide receiver commit of this class, along with four-stars Ahmir Mitchell and Brad Hawkins, both out of New Jersey. It is possible athlete Chris Evans also plays wide receiver in the slot.

Johnson is the 21st overall commitment for this recruiting cycle.
