Michigan Coach Subtweets 5-Star Recruit, Alabama Commit Najee Harris

Michigan RB coach Tyrone Wheatley sent out a not-so-subtle subtweet in the direction of Alabama commit Najee Harris this morning.

Running back Najee Harris is the No. 1 ranked in the 2017 class and, naturally, every school in America wants him. He committed to Alabama way back in April of 2015, but he has yet to sign his official letter of intent, and has continued to visit other schools. Last week, he visited both Cal and Michigan, and it's the Michigan visit that prompted running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley to tweet out the following early Thursday morning:

It's a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Knocks Me Off My Feet" by an artist named Najee. That's not subtle! And for good measure, let's take a look at some of the lyrics real quick:

I don't want to bore you with it Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you

Safe to say they really want Harris to be a Wolverine. Wheatley tweeted this shortly after:

Sure, coach, we all believe you.
