There are a handful of coaches around the country who are not very fond of satellite camps — especially in SEC country — but a coach at the NFL is very impressed with what the Michigan Wolverines have been able to do.
John Harbaugh, the brother of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is very impressed with the Ann Arbor program.
John recently spoke on his younger brother’s innovative recruiting tactic that has led to a world tour this summer, specifically complimenting Jim for being able to hold up with the vigorous travel schedule.
“Would I be able to? If he can up, I could hold up,” John said, via the Detroit Free Press. “We’ll see how he does. If he makes it, I’m quite sure I would make it too. Are you kidding me? You think I’d tap (out)? You never tap out, can’t do that.
“He never does anything part way at all. I’m amazed at what they’re doing. The coaches and the staff how hard they’re working. I saw them work dawn until dusk in Baltimore and I know they did some yesterday too. Got dinner with Jay (Harbaugh) and they were back in the hotel sleeping, getting up the next day and doing it again. Pretty cool.”
Earlier this week, Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines swung through Baltimore for one of their many satellite camp tour stops. During that stop, Jim and John got the rare opportunity to work together.
While Jim is obviously bias because of the family connection, I think anyone can admire the hard work John has been putting in to ensure his program can once again become a major player in the Big Ten Conference.
