Looking to be a dynamic piece in Michigan's 2016 class, Nathan Johnson could be another weapon for Jedd Fisch in the passing game.


His Recruiting Story:

Commanding plenty of attention early in his recruiting process, a strong senior season led Nathan Johnson to think more about what his future may hold. With offers from all over the country, Johnson ultimately ended up giving Michigan a verbal commitment on Dec. 12, following a visit. Since that time, Miami and Notre Dame got involved, leaving Johnson as a soft commit before officially recommitting to the Wolverines on signing day.

Scouting Report:

Speed, speed, and more speed, Johnson is a dynamic threat off the line and with the football in his hands. Showing the ability to go up and locate the football at it's highest point, Johnson is just as good with yards after the catch, showcasing a great ability to make defenders miss in the open field.

Why Michigan?

Recently receiving a contract extension from Michigan, receiver's coach and passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch earned high marks from Johnson:

“He’s a very good coach and has a great sense of humor,” said Johnson. “When I went down there, I knew I could definitely see myself being coached by him. I felt comfortable around him and he felt comfortable around me, so it was a good fit.

Bottom Line:

Johnson's relationship with Jedd Fisch and the possibilities in Michigan's offense afford him the opportunity he's looking for to be a dynamic playmaker at the next level.
