Jim Harbaugh's recruiting took him to high school, Netflix sleepover

Wednesday January 20th, 2016

Jim Harbaugh never stops recruiting, which is why he followed up his tree climbing appearance with four-star Pasadena cornerback David Long with an appearance in a De La Salle high class with four-star defensive tackle Boss Tagaloa.

The Michigan coach sat in on a world religion class with Tagaloa on Tuesday, learning some new things and confusing the teacher in the process.

After school, Harbaugh also made sure to help get Tagaloa’s media branding game up.

Later, Harbaugh swung by four-star defensive end Connor Murphy’s house to stream some movies and hang out.

Harbaugh has done some unconventional recruiting with the Murphy family before, babysitting Connor while successfully wooing brother Trent to come to Stanford.
