As the Michigan Wolverines aim to return to the top of the college football landscape, newly hired head coach Jim Harbaugh announced Thursday that Michigan will hold a “2015 Summer Swarm Tour.”
The series of camps will be held throughout the United States and offers the Wolverines coaching staff an opportunity to interact with top recruits without having to bring them to Ann Arbor.
Some people feel the new tactic is hurting college football, but for a guy like Harbaugh the camps provide him a chance to drastically improve his recruiting spectrum.
Some of the highlighted locations from the trip include:Indiana, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, California and Michigan.
“We are excited to go across the country and teach youth football in these communities,” Harbaugh said in a release. “This is a great way for us to continue to be ambassadors for the great game of football.”
If Harbaugh is able to capitalize on the extra recruiting time, he should have an excellent shot of improving the overall talent level of the Michigan roster rather quickly. Still, its a slow and steady process that requires these type of camps in order to be successful.
