Jim Harbaugh earned a victory over his old school Stanford and much of the rest of college football on Monday, when Michigan landed a commitment from Dylan McCaffrey, a blue-chip QB recruit in the class of 2017.

The 6-4, 190-pound McCaffrey is from Colorado and happens to be the younger brother of Stanford star Christian McCaffrey and the son of former Cardinal WR Ed McCaffrey. 

The younger McCaffrey threw 27 TDs and just four INTs in 2015 while leading Valor Christian High School to the Colorado Class 5A football championship. He also ran for 592 yards and 13 more TDs –” and caught two touchdown passes.

“He’s got his dad’s height and he can really run at 6-4, 6-5,” one college coach who tried recruiting McCaffrey said. "You just don’t see a lot of kids who are that tall and can run like he can and throw too. He’s a legit 4.6 guy and he’s really improved a lot in the last year or so throwing the ball."
