“The final 12 hours were just a culmination of a relationship,” he said. “Jen Coney, Rashan’s mom, has carried the most water. She is an outstanding parent. She wants what all the parents want for their sons, and that is the best for their sons.

“He visited Michigan four times and connected with the people here,” Harbaugh said. “When he was here on his last visit, he was heading back to New Jersey and they had finals. He had to start studying, so he went into a room and for three hours he studied. He wasn’t up and down out of his seat, going to get snacks, drinking Diet Cokes … he studied for three solid hours because they had finals coming up. That’s really impressive.
“Rashan carries a 3.7 GPA. He works for things, wants to be the best in the classroom and excel in sports. With that kind of work ethic and what we do - we give them great support, coach them – I think it will be a great relationship. Our players, they’ve been around him a lot now. He’ll be part of our ball team. There’s nothing better than being part of a ball team.”
