Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh has a unique approach to in-home visits


Assistant coaches around the country right now are scrambling to squeeze in some in-home visits with top prospects and their families before bowl games are announced.

There is really only one unwritten rule of home visits that every coach must adhere to, and that is to never turn down food. Other than that, coaches spend their in-home visits with recruits and their families in a variety of ways.

From the looks of it, for 26-year old Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh, those home visits sometimes include a friendly game of Madden '16.

His team of choice? The Baltimore Ravens coached by his uncle - John Harbaugh - of course.

If you have to ask why he didn't let the recruit win, you clearly don't understand the Harbaugh family bloodline.
