The University of Michigan officially has its first recruit for 2034: Harbaugh Lee Fettig. Born September 1, 2016 and named after Wolverine football coach Jim Harbaugh, Fettig is already surrounded by Michigan football.

Naturally, Coach Harbaugh was excited to share the news.

Though parents Gregg and Lani didn’t name their three older children after Michigan football players and coaches, they decided to pull the trigger on Harbaugh, who led the team to a 10-3 record last season.

Michigan is among the early favorites for the 2018 national title and already it seems that there’s something in the air.
