After a wild few weeks, Nate Johnson is sticking with the Wolverines as the fifth wide receiver in the 2016 class.

Good news for Michigan Football to start off National Signing Day 2016.

Class of 2016 wide receiver Nate Johnson (Thompson's Station, Tennessee) announced on Wednesday morning that he has reaffirmed his commitment to the Michigan Wolverines.

He originally committed to Michigan on Dec. 12, but took a step back a few weeks ago to evaluate all of his options.

Johnson is a three-star prospect and the 93rd-ranked wide receiver in the class, according to 247's Composite ranking system. Notre Dame became a factor in recent weeks, but backed off, allowing Michigan to swoop back in and close the deal.

His renewed commitment means the Wolverines are likely done at wide receiver in this class. Johnson joins four-stars Ahmir Mitchell, Dylan Crawford, Brad Hawkins and three-star Eddie McDoom.

At one point, Keyshawn "Pie" Young was set to join the class, but was told to hold off. His decision is yet to come today and Michigan is in the mix, but he is likely no longer a take.
