College football coaches don't get much more intense than Jim Harbaugh. In case you had forgotten about the Michigan coach's fire, Harbaugh displayed it on the sideline in the first half of UM's game against Oregon State. He was screaming at a referee before slamming his clipboard against the turf. 

Dontavious Jackson, a four-star linebacker in the 2016 class, likes what he saw from Harbaugh. 

The 6-foot-2, 239-pound prospect out of Houston, Texas, is a Michigan target. 

Jackson is reportedly considering Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas, among others. He's ranked the No. 5 inside linebacker in the country by 247 Sports' Composite Rankings
