The Michigan football team picked up a big commitment Wednesday when Cheshire, Connecticut, wide receiver Tarik Black announced his decision to play for Jim Harbaugh.

Black is a four-star wide receiver, according to 247 Sports. He is the top-ranked player in the state of Connecticut, the No. 17 receiver in the class and the No. 124 player in the country.

Black is commit No. 21 for the Wolverines' 2017 class, joining Brad Hawkins as the second receiver in the class.

Michigan currently owns the No. 7 recruiting class in the country behind Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU and Texas A&M.

Michigan also lost a commitment Wednesday when four-star running back commit A.J. Dillon flipped to Boston College. Dillon is the No. 1 recruit in Massachusetts and No. 301 overall.
