In late March, Springfield (Ohio) sophomore linebacker Antwuan Johnson became the first member of Michigan’s 2018 recruiting class. A few weeks later, he went to check out his future home and see the Wolverines annual spring game.
“The visit was great man,” Johnson told The Michigan Insider. “I look forward to being here. It was great man, a lot of love from the fans, who are really excited, so it was a great time. I got to talk with Coach Bam, Coach Bush, Coach Harbaugh, Coach Zordich, and Coach Jay Harbaugh. They just said they're happy to have me be a part of the family.”
During the 6-1, 210-pounder’s time spent in Ann Arbor, his class grew when his close friend and teammate in sophomore tight end/defensive end Leonard Taylor decided to pledge to the Maize and Blue.
Now, he’s very excited to potentially continue playing together at the next level.
“This is great man like we can finish these last two seasons and we can more than likely enroll early together and go win a national title,” said Johnson.
As a Wolverine commit, Johnson put on his recruiting hat and targeted a pair of talented brothers from New Jersey in sophomore linebacker Jayson Ademilola and sophomore defensive end Justin Ademilola.
“Yeah, I did recruit the twins from Jersey,” said Johnson. “We would love to have them join the 2018 class. They are fun guys to kick it with and great players on the field. They'll help us keep building on this class.”
