24/7 Sports - With Signing Day quickly approaching, Michigan continues to go all out for top tight end target Chris Clark. Clark, who will decide between the Wolverines and UCLA on National Signing Day next Tuesday, received an old school letter from tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh explaining 8 (Clark’s number) different reasons why he should commit to the Wolverines.
National Signing Day is right around the corner, and UCLA and Michigan are both in hot pursuit of Chris Clark, 4th best tight end recruit in the country according to ESPN. Trying to tip the scales in Michigan’s favor, tight end coach and son of renowned hardo Jim Harbaugh wrote Chris a handwritten letter. Since I doubt you have a set of binoculars on hand I’ve transcribed it below. Let’s see what this #TheHarbaughEffect is all about.
1. We have used, know how to use and will use tight ends… A lot!
Ok Sandusky. Fuck, no, that was really stupid and lame. Hopefully I think of something better by the time this blog publishes. (Spoiler: I probably won’t)
2. You can wear #8 here!
True. Or just shove Jalen Ortiz in a locker when you get to LA and take it from him since you’re twice his size.
Update for you morons out there – Ortiz plays receiver sometimes too, caught 4 balls last year for 27 yards.
3. 104, 909 – 74,340 = 30,569 more people will see it every week if you choose the big house!
That kind of math is above my pay grade so I’m gonna take your word for it here Jay.
3. We are close to Chicago/Indianapolis/Cleveland/Detroit/Madison/Milwaukee/Green Bay/Buffalo.
Hahahahah. First of all you wrote 3 twice you idiot. I just complimented your math skills too so now you made both of us look like dicks. Second of all, if you take out Chicago that is, by no exaggeration, a list of the LEAST desirable cities in America. Obviously I love Buffalo and the whole rust belt, we’re good, hardworking, blue collar people. But don’t be an idiot, Jay. Come on. You’re better than that. Point UCLA. Also, why no exclamation point after Buffalo? That seems like a personal attack at me and I’m treating it as such.
4. We will have a QB… A good one!
Nowhere to go but up so sure, why not.
5. This is the BEST public school in America –> You didn’t survive Avon to go anywhere but the best.
Michigan is a really, really good school. Don’t really have anything to elaborate on here. Plus I hear there are tons of Asians if that’s your cup of tea. But I guess UCLA is also a good school and probably has even more Asians so we’ll call this one a draw. Also worth noting is how ridiculous his high schools name is. Avon Old Farms School For Boys. Hey Chris, do you know my friend Trent by chance? He’s from Iowa but idk if maybe you met on a farming message board or something. Nice guy.
6. We have the most wins…. EVER.
Facts are facts.*
*Most of them came back before black people were allowed to play.
7. We have the biggest Addidas contract in the nation!! –> More gear!
Guess how much of that Adidas contract money you see? Just guess.
8. This is a very special time @ a very special place. That’s how legacies are cemented. We are both going to be a part of that! I promise you we will win and grow together.
So you trying to be a Michigan Man or what?
P.S. I like how Jay Harbaugh sent him an entire fucking notebook instead of just the page the note was written on. Harbaugh’s never give less than 110%. Honestly that could be the deciding factor. Is that college ruled I see? Classy touch. #TheHarbaughEffect strikes again.
