New Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be together again, if only for one day.

College Football 24/7 Hot Topics:

Harbaugh and Michigan are hosting a special one-day quarterback camp June 20. Michigan is billing it as "Ann Arbor's aerial assault" and is calling the camp "an elite quarterback training school." There's an impressive list of scheduled "counselors," including Kaepernick, Jay Cutler and recent No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston.

A Harbaugh tweet referred to it as a "QB Cage Match!"

Also in attendance will be former Michigan quarterbacks Elvis Grbac and Denard Robinson (now a running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars), as well as Michigan offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and quarterback guru George Whitfield, Jr.

You have to hand it to Harbaugh: Though he hasn't coached a college game since the 2010 season, he is one of the hottest college coaches in the nation, and this one-day extravaganza is further proof. A high school quarterback getting to work with Cutler and Kaepernick and Winston? Impressive, especially when you consider that none of those quarterbacks went to Michigan and that only Kaepernick has been coached by Harbaugh, although Winston did spend some time with Harbaugh in Ann Arbor during his draft prep this offseason.

The camp is open to all quarterbacks in grades nine through 12, and it will cost $150. An interesting nugget from the poster: "All participants must bring their own ball." (We could make a Tom Brady joke here, but we'll pass. And Brady is a Michigan alum, too.)

As for the "aerial assault" aspect of the camp, the only time a Michigan quarterback has thrown for 3,000 yards in a season was John Navarre in 2003 (3,331 yards).
