Ben Berkley is a Michigan alum, and a "Chad Henne fanatic" according to his Twitter bio. His new fiance Alex Jackson is a Wolverine fan as well.

The pair got engaged last night in Los Angeles, and Berkley was anxious to share the good news with the Harbaugh clan on Twitter. He even wants Jim Harbaugh to officiate his wedding ceremony.
