Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is planning a literal sleepover with top kicking prospect Quinn Nordin despite the fact that Norden is already verbally committed to Penn State, according to Allen Trieu of Scout.
Nordin, who currently plays at Rockford High School in the Grand Rapids area, offered further details on just how badly Harbaugh wanted him in Ann Arbor once the recruiting dead period ended this week, starting tomorrow.
“Under the exact rules, he’s going to be at my house at 12:01 he said. That’s when it’s legal for him to be at my house,” Nordin said. “He said we can watch a movie, see how well we gel and he said he would sleep over after that.
“I was in tears laughing when he said that. He said the next day, if my parents didn’t want me to miss school, he would go to every class with me and go to lunch with me. I was laughing so hard. He told me if I had a 6-foot-3 inch piece of carpet for him to sleep on, that would be enough. I said we have guest rooms, and he said ‘Tell you what, I’ll just sleep on the floor in your room.’ I said ‘Coach, I have Penn State stuff all over my walls.’ He said, ‘Tell you what, I can help you take it down.’”
Well, Harbaugh is certainly persistent, to say the least. He clearly wants Nordin on the Wolverines and, oddly enough, Nordin has an official visit to Ann Arbor planned this weekend.
It just goes to show that until that Letter of Intent is faxed to Nordin’s school of choice, a verbal commitment to Penn State is borderline meaningless.
