Jim Harbaugh has taken Michigan recruiting to an entirely new level since taking over the program a little more than a year ago, and now he's taking the little brother of a Heisman Trophy finalist along for the ride.
Dylan McCaffrey, the younger brother of Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey and son of former Denver Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey, has committed to the Wolverines:
McCaffrey is a four-star quarterback recruit from Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian High, and had scholarship offers from schools spanning all the Power Five conferences, according to Rivals.com. His older brother broke Barry Sanders' NCAA record for all-purpose yardage in a single season last season (3,864), and was a Heisman Trophy finalist along with Clemson QB Deshaun Watson and Alabama RB Derrick Henry, who won the award.
The younger McCaffrey led Valor Christian to a Class 5A state championship last year. Assuming he doesn't change his mind, McCaffrey will sign with Michigan in February 2017. As such, he won't arrive in time to compete to be Jake Rudock's replacement in 2016, but he'll certainly arrive with plenty of hype.
