Michigan added four-star receiver Dylan Crawford to its 2016 recruiting class on Saturday, as the California native pledged for the Wolverines during the first quarter of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

Crawford, who hails from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., picked Michigan over Georgia, Miami, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Washington.

“I just felt it was the all-around best fit for me,“ Crawford said in a TV interview “They've got a good network there, I can go in there and try and compete from the beginning.”

Scout.com ranks the receiver from Santa Margarita Catholic the 131st overall player in the country and the 24th best wideout. Michigan and Jim Harbaugh add Crawford to a talented class that includes five-star running back Kareem Walker, four-star quarterback Brandon Peters and four-star receiver Ahmir Mitchell, among many others. Crawford is the fourth receiver to commit in this class.

Crawford cought 51 passes for 822 yards and seven touchdowns as  high school senior.
