Michigan's massive 2016 haul just got a bit bigger.

The Wolverines received a commitment on Saturday afternoon from wide receiver Dylan Crawford (Rancho Santa Margarita, California) at the U.S. Army All-American game.

Crawford is a four-star prospect and the 20th-ranked wide receiver in the 2016 class, according to the 247 Composite rankings.

He has been high on the staff's board at wide receiver for quite some time, but it looked unlikely he would come east to Ann Arbor with high-profile schools closer to home after him. Oregon was his presumed leader for a bit, but recent wide receiver commits with their class helped Michigan get back into the mix.

Stanford, UCLA, USC, Arizona State and Washington were among the other teams recruiting him.

Crawford gives Michigan its fourth wide receiver commit of the 2016 class, joining four-stars Ahmir Mitchell and Brad Hawkins and three-star prospect Nate Johnson. Pie Young could also still end up in Ann Arbor.

Overall, Crawford is the 24th commitment of 2016 with National Signing Day quickly approaching on Feb. 3.
