The N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" is set to hit theaters on Friday, and the flick has spawned a popular meme on social media.

It features people showing off black-and-white photos of themselves with the phrase "Straight Outta ___" accompanying the picture. It's supposed to be a lighthearted way for people to say where they are from. 

Michigan football turned the meme into a recruiting tool today. The program released a graphic labeled "Straight Outta The NFL" featuring a collage of staff members who boast NFL experience. Among those mentioned were Jim and Jay Harbaugh, Mike Zordich and Jedd Fisch.
