This is too funny to not post.
Congrats to Bears, Raiders, Bills, Great Coaches and men, John Fox, Jack Del Rio, Rex! And Home Run hires Vic Fangio, Brad Seely, Greg Roman— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) January 21, 2015
Can you find the missing hire?
There are many reasons this is interesting.
He's 6'4" 285 lb consensus 5 star.
He's the one of the (if not the) top player in the country in 2016.
He has family in Michigan.
He goes to Paramus Catholic which gave us Jabrill Peppers as well as Juwan Bushell-Beatty.
The coach for Jabrill and Juwan recently became a college coach and was replaced by Blake Costanzo.
Blake's picture in his playing days.
His coach was Jim Harbaugh.
I like our chances.
Edited to add:
Per his Twitters, he said he made the decision not to visit. Sounds odd that a guy with offers from Kentucky, Liberty, and Arkansas would cancel, especially since I think Harbaugh made an in-home visit last night IIRC. It may be the UM homer in me, but seems more like a "I broke up with her, she didn't break up with me" situation due to a change in circumstances.
Let's say, hypothetically, that your football team likes footballs to be a bit under inflated. Now, you know that the balls will be in public view as soon as the refs release custody of them, and you don't want some ball boy caught doctoring the footballs on NFL Films.
It is 45 degrees outside. The balls are delivered to the referees 2.5 hours before kickoff. They are inspected at that time and must record an air pressure of between 12.5 and 13.5 PSI. They are measured in a 70 F room.
You're at home. You have your own rooms with thermostats, and possibly customized air delivery equipment.
Is it possible to deliberately inflate the balls at an artificially high temperature to measure the correct pressure (say, 15 minutes after inflation in a 70 degree room), knowing that the pressure will decrease once they spend time outside? Note that the balls are kept indoors with the refs for over two hours. By halftime they were 2lbs light, which suggests 10-10.5 PSI. Would it hold enough heat to work? How hot are we talking?
He's a 3 star TE/DE out of NJ. Interesting to see Harbaugh and Co going after committed players. Not sure his interest level but he seems like a solid
Jake Butt less than Jake Butt type player.
247 Has changed Michigan to the "Warm" interest level for what it's worth.
Hoke offerred him after his Junior year and has a pretty nice offer sheet from the likes of Oregon, BC, and Syracuse.
