Jim Harbaugh Asked A Recruit To Play For Michigan The Same Way The Recruit Asked His Date To Prom

Jim Harbaugh with a weird sign.

New Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is getting rather creative in his attempts to land four-star defensive tackle recruit Boss Tagaloa. Harbaugh, who really seems to be embracing social media the past few months, found a photo of Tagaloa asking his date to prom. Harbaugh then copied the format to ask Tagaloa to play for Michigan. You can't make this stuff up.

We have no idea if this is going to work, but it's clear that he's got Tagaloa's attention. Sometimes bizarre tactics like this can be the difference.
