Jim Harbaugh literally climbed a tree to recruit a cornerback

Tuesday January 19th, 2016

Michigan football coach and noted maniac Jim Harbaugh will absolutely stop at nothing when it comes to recruiting, even it means scaling a tree. 

Harbaugh was in Southern California on Monday night to try and convince four-star cornerback prospect David Long to join the Wolverines. Like any sane teenager, Long chronicled the whole visit on Snapchat. 

The coach, wearing his signature khakis of course, plays catch in the street with Long’s siblings, even admitting he threw a bad pass. Then, for whatever reason, Harbaugh decides to climb up a tree.

What a weirdo.
