Michigan stayed hot on the recruiting trail Tuesday, receiving its fourth commitment in the past three days.

Three-star St. John’s College (Washington) defensive back Quinten Johnson announced his commitment to the Wolverines while attending The Opening, a recruiting showcase taking place this weekend in Texas.

Johnson becomes the 19th recruit to join Michigan’s class, which is ranked third in the nation and first in the Big Ten by 247 Sports Composite. According to 247Sports, he is the No. 470 recruit in the nation and the fourth-best prospect from D.C.

With Johnson’s decision, the Wolverines have secured nine commitments in their 2019 class since June 22.

247Sports recruiting analyst Steve Lorenz said Johnson is a “blazer” who could play at either safety or the hybrid viper position in Michigan’s defensive scheme. According to Lorenz, Michigan’s coaching staff loves Johnson’s physicality.

“He’s really, really, really athletic, plays a physical brand of football, and that’s really what they’re looking for,” Lorenz said. “Sort of a Jabrill (Peppers)-lite in my opinion. I stress the lite, because there’s not a Jabrill walking around every corner. But he has the same abilities as a physical safety who, depending on his physical maturation, could evolve into that viper spot. He plays physically enough to play there.”
