ESPN: Jim Harbaugh has 'Brought Michigan to the Forefront'

Harbaugh's impact on recruiting is undeniable.

Jim Harbaugh is quickly making his mark not just on the Michigan Wolverines, but on college football as a whole. Like everyone else, the four-letter network is buzzing about Harbaugh's "Signing with the Stars" event set for Wednesday.

In the above clip, ESPN recruiting reporter Tom VanHaaren says Harbaugh has "brought Michigan to the forefront in everything that he's done" and points out the sharp contrast between his recruiting tactics and those of predecessor Brady Hoke.

Brett McMurphy offers a less rosy analysis, saying some coaches liken it to "a TMZ show" that would be better placed at Saginaw Valley State than Michigan. It would be interesting to know who those coaches are.
