Michigan's top ranked recruiting class added another piece Wednesday morning. St. Louis (Mo.) wide receiver Jehu Chesson made things official by committing to the Wolverines, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pounder held scholarship offers from Missouri, Northwestern, Iowa and UCLA among others.

Chesson becomes the Wolverines 24th commit in the class of 2012 and second receiver, joining fellow midwest wide out Amara Darboh. The pair badly fill a position of need for the team ahead of Signing Day.

"He is one of the hardest working WR's I've seen in getting off the line, finding the open seam, and catching everything within reach," analyst Tom Lemming said. "He has tremendous work ethic and is not satisfied with being just a good player. Like the above mentioned receivers, he's a tall, athletic, and agile WR with soft, natural hands. He catches the ball away from his body and normally in full stride, adjusts well to poorly thrown balls, and catches the ball in traffic on a regular basis."

Chesson caught 53 passes for 757 yards and six touchdowns as a senior.
