Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football program definitely have some unique recruiting tactics, so this move caught everyone’s eye.
On Monday, it was announced that the Wolverines have added St. King’s Academy head coach Michael Johnson to the staff. Johnson, a former NFL assistant, has plenty of experience, but also some ties to one of the top recruits in an upcoming class.
Johnson’s son is Michael Johnson Jr., the top dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2019.

According to 247 Sports, Johnson is also the No. 8-ranked recruit in the state of California and a top 100 recruit inthe nation. The 6-foot-3 signal-caller also holds offers from Arizona, California, Florida State, Louisville and many others.
However, with his father now on the Wolverines coaching staff, Michigan looks like a great option.
Way to go, Jim Harbaugh. Always one step ahead.
