Michigan Friday: Welcomes a New WR Commit From California

Michigan hasn't grabbed a player out of Mater Dei in California in some 20+ years and that guy was a non-descript full back.  Hopefully, that changed with the commitment of 4 star WR Cristian Dixon who picked Michigan over the likes of USC, Cal, LSU, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas A&M, and Washington State. 

Dixon has a bit of discrepancy in his rankings between services as ESPN and Rivals have him in their top 175 while 24/7 doesn't even rank him nationally as a 3 star 96th WR in the country.    One of the issues is, Dixon transferred to Mater Dei last season and started the year with an injury and was playing catch-up all season.   Hopefully, he will have a great senior year and see his ranking rise.    

Dixon is not known as a burner, so that might be another reason his rankings as dropped some.  He is posting a 4.6 in the 40 which is considered pretty slow.   On the other side, he could of been nursing an injury during those runs as well.   He is listed at 6'2 187.  

Welcome Cristian! 

Michigan is now up to 19 commits and "the rooms at the Inn are getting full".  Michigan's board still has instate prospects on topRB Donovan Edwards, OG Rocco Spindler, and DT Rayshaun Benny.
