Former Texas coach Mack Brown, now a college football analyst for ESPN, gives Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh high marks for all he's done since he was hired the end of last year, even without having coached a game.
"I follow him on Twitter, I watched everything he's done with satellite camps and his confidence, and I think you have to give him an A-plus from the time he's taken the job until now," Brown said.
"The biggest question is to get that quarterback, the right guy, to play consistently well and get the ball to the right people. It'll be fun to watch Michigan especially in that opener."
Looks as though other schools including Texas, Oregon, and Georgia Tech (do they have the recruiting clout to do this?? edit: Talking about GT here) are instituting a similar policy on recruit visits.
Right from the old man's mouth:
"The thing that we will do is we have allowed the kids to commit and still look around the last couple of years -- we're not doing that anymore," Brown said last week on Signing Day. "If you are committed to us, be committed. If you're going to go look, we're going to go look."
I hadn't seen this mentioned yet. If it has been, all apologies.
