N.J. high school to play game at Michigan Stadium
Paramus Catholic High School (N.J.) will play a game at Michigan Stadium next season, reports MLive.com’s Nick Baumgardner.
The game will take place on Sept. 2, a university spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.
The Wolverines and the powerhouse high school program have had a history together since 2014, when Jabrill Peppers and Juwann Bushell-Beatty committed to Michigan. It continued when Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh hired Paramus Catholic’s former coach Chris Partridge as his director of player personnel.
Partridge, who is now Michigan’s linebackers/special teams coach, helped the Wolverines land Paramus Catholic standout Rashan Gary, the No. 1 player in the class of 2016.
Paramus Catholic will host Michigan’s coaches at a Next Level Football camp on Wednesday night.
