Jim Harbaugh and his khaki pants have been killing it in recruiting. From sleepovers with potential recruits, to bringing in celebrities, Harbaugh is cutting no corners in effort to lure the nations top recruits to Ann Arbor.
Wednesday was National Signing Day for highschool recruits, a day where kids can either make college coaches very, very happy, or disappointed. Harbaugh and the University of Michigan brought out the big guns, having sporting celebs like Tom Brady, Lou Holtz, Derek Jeter and Ric Flair to name a few, packing in 3,500-plus fans to pack a 103-year-old auditorium staged for a dramatic performance Wednesday all in celebration of new recruits.
After the festivities, the self-proclaimed “Dirtiest Player in the Game” posed for a photo opp. with Tom Brady, which by most people’s accounts should be the “Dirtiest Player in the Game” posed for a pic with Ric Flair…
