Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has raised the recruiting bar by having literal sleepovers with recruits, but the question poses itself: what does he actually do on these visits?
Well, thanks to a report from Football AZ, we now have an idea. From start to finish, Harbaugh will arrive after midnight (per NCAA rules), drink a gallon of two percent milk, go to sleep in some gray Michigan sweats, spend the following day with the recruit, and then end the day with some athletics.
The youngster Harbaugh visited most recently was three-star defensive end and Phoenix native Connor Murphy, who went into detail regarding his time with Harbaugh.
“He got to my house almost at 1 a.m. last night. We ate banana bread, drank some ice-cold milk – that’s his favorite, he loves his two-percent milk, so we made sure to give him a whole gallon full of that – and then we chatted up probably for about another hour, probably until about 1:30 a.m. By that point, we just hit the hay.”
“(That) morning, he drove with me in my truck to school. That was a lot of fun. All the kids in my school, they were all outside with their Michigan sweatshirts on and all that. It was fun. It was a blast for sure.”
“We actually didn’t watch Netflix. That was just for the picture.”
“Yes, yes he did (wear pajamas).”
That said, though some may not agree with Harbaugh’s methods of recruiting, there’s no doubt that he left a positive affect on at least one in Murphy.
