Power forward Brandon Johns gave the University of Michigan an early win in the 2018 recruiting race by committing to the school Thursday.

Johns announced his intention to play college basketball for the Wolverines on Twitter:

Currently attending East Lansing High School, Johns is a 4-star recruit who is ranked as the No. 2 power forward in the state of Michigan, No. 21 power forward in the nation and No. 100 overall recruit in the 2018 class, per Scout.

Johns was also considering Big Ten schools Indiana and Purdue, as well as Pittsburgh in the ACC, before committing to Michigan.

Michigan head coach John Beilein needs to make big splashes in recruiting to capitalize on last season's Big Ten tournament title and NCAA tournament run to the Sweet 16. The Wolverines also compete against conference rival Michigan State for elite prospects every year, so Johns' addition in 2018 is a huge win for the program.
