Video: Jim Harbaugh races go karts during visit with five-star recruit

Jim Harbaugh knows how to have fun during recruiting visits.

While visiting with five-star recruit Aubrey Solomon at a recent visit, Harbaugh decided to lighten the mood by enjoying some go kart racing along with defensive coordinator Don Brown and linebackers coach Chris Partridge.

According to the Detroit News, Harbaugh also took his daughter along for the trip.

Solomon has a younger sister around the same age as Harbaugh’s daughter, Addy, and the two had plenty of fun.

From the report:

“Their visit to see Aubrey is something I have never seen on a recruiting trip,” The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb said. “He took his daughter with him, which is a two-fold thing. Aubrey has a little sister around the same age as Harbaugh’s daughter so that is an opportunity for another family member there to be engaged and demonstrated to Aubrey and his mom how much of a family guy Harbaugh is.”

It’s no wonder players across the country want to suit up for Harbaugh and the Wolverines.
