Michigan Football Recruiting: Drake Johnson Commits

Michigan picked up its 24th football commitment for 2012 on Tuesday morning. Ann Arbor Pioneer running back Drake Johnson received a scholarship offer from the Wolverines and quickly accepted it. He is now Michigan's 24th commit and the only true running back committed for 2012.

Based on the recruiting sites, it seems Michigan is hoping Johnson is a sleeper who will outperform his ranking. Rivals and 24/7 Sports haven't even rated him, and Scout and ESPN both rate him as a two-star running back. Johnson is ranked as the 133rd running back in the nation on Scout and 153rd on ESPN.

Rivals lists Eastern Michigan as Johnson's only offer, so it's no surprise Johnson committed after Michigan extended him a scholarship on Tuesday morning.
