Satellite Camps Yield New Wolverine Recruits

Jim Harbaugh seems to be having fun.  Coach Harbaugh just finished a stretch where he participated in eleven high school football camps in 7 states over a period of 9 days.

Despite some objections, particularly from SEC coaches, the time appears to have been well spent. During his “Summer Swarm” tour, Harbaugh received commitments from four hopeful future Wolverines: RB Kiante Enis; ATH Chris Evans; LB Dytarious Johnson, and DB Antwaine Richardson. The 2016 Wolverine Recruiting Class now has reached sixteen players.
