It’s the quiet period, right? Schools can’t talk directly with recruits now, right? Even Jim Harbaugh can’t talk to recruits at IMG, right?
The thing is, Harbaugh doesn’t really need to talk to recruits right now. He’s letting Michigan’s spring practice trip speak for itself. And the message is coming through loud and clear:
K.K. Hahn, a receiver at IMG who will be going to Ann Arbor as a preferred walk-on in the fall, said the energy around Michigan is palpable.
“It definitely feels like something is happening right now,” said Hahn, who is from Bethesda, Maryland.
Joshua Uche, a linebacker from Miami and a Michigan signee, made the three-hour trip north with his high school coach to watch the Wolverines and spend some time with his future teammates.
“[Harbaugh] finding that loophole and doing something different, being outside the box, is pretty cool to me,” he said.
This is what’s really freaking out Greg Sankey’s coaches. And getting the NCAA to shut trips like this down isn’t going to change that as long as Harbaugh has the initiative. Much like Nick Saban has done, Harbaugh will simple find another way to push the envelope and will gain attention in doing so.
In the meantime, he’ll be at another satellite camp this summer. In Alabama.
