I hadn't realized that he had ever enrolled, but you are correct, he attended for a semester before leaving for the minors: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/features/jeter/timeline/

In another article, he talks about attending every football and basketball game (when the fab 5 were sophomores) that fall; no wonder he's a huge fan!

PS: Yay Kalamazoo!

Because then you could count all our celebrity alums. James Earl Jones and the like. (Personal favorite? Lucy Liu).

I keep seeing pics of Leonardo DiCaprio with an M hat on. But he may just like the colors.

That doesn't make him a Michigan "fan" because he knows what our colors are.  He's a sports fan.  Wale says he "protects Hart like Michigan's line" in song.  He also raps about Ernest Wilford of the Jaguars and nobody accuses him of being a huge Jags fan (he's a DC guy).  Both of these guys are huge sports fans -- you'll see them on First Take -- not Michigan fans, despite name drops in songs.  

On the other hand, I saw Luke Walton and Richard Jefferson at the Michigan @ Notre Dame Football Game in Denard's Sophomore year, sitting in the Michigan section.  I think they have some sort of connection.  Shane Battier is married into a prominent Michigan family and I've seen him around Ann Arbor a few times.  He's a Dukie obviously, but I think may be a M football fan.

I will probably get negged for this, but I think that Taylor kid from the twilight movies is a Michigan fan. He grew up on the west side. Obligatory disclaimer? Yes: my sister is 15 so that's how I came upon this info.

On a better note, Mini Me was at a spring game one time so ye must be a fan.

And maybe Hugh jackman? I only say that because of the xmen movies and have no factual basis.

He's Taylor Lautner from Hudsonville MI - a little Dutch farmtown outside of Grand Rapids. No word on if he's a M fan but I'd assume so.

Just so you know, I'm not a Twilight fan but I live by there so that's how I know where he's from.
