Jim Harbaugh Michigan football

Jim Harbaugh is a rock star. The Michigan head coach maneuvered his way to landing the No. 5-ranked 2016 recruiting class, per 247 sports. Adding to his collection of top recruits, now he’s hauled in another in 4-star quarterback Dylan McCaffrey, brother of Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and son of former NFL receiver Ed McCaffrey.

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound gun-slinger committed to Michigan, announcing his decision via his Twitter account on Monday night:

McCaffrey is slated to join Harbaugh’s Wolverines in 2017, and given the track record of Harbaugh’s previous pupils at the University of San Diego and Stanford, he made a smart choice.

Not surprisingly, his big brother approves:

McCaffrey led Valor Christian High School to the Colorado Class 5A football championship this past season, throwing 27 touchdowns and just four interceptions.
