ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh announced the addition of 14 student-athletes to the Wolverines program on Wednesday (Feb. 4), including 12 who signed National Letters of Intent on the first day of the signing period.
The announcement of the initial 12 signees was made during a press conference held at 2 p.m. inside the Towsley Family Museum at Schembechler Hall, and paperwork for two additional recruits arrived later in the afternoon. U-M previously announced two early enrollees -- wide receiver Brian Cole and quarterback Alex Malzone -- in January at the beginning of the academic semester.
