WOOOO! Michigan will welcome recruits with Flair

BY Marcus Hartman • January 28, 2016

Michigan announced last week it will hold a star-studded signing day event Feb. 3. 

Since then, the list of celebrities set to join Jim Harbaugh and his staff as they unveil their 2016 Wolverines recruiting class has started to come into focus. 

They may not find one to make a bigger splash than who they announced Thursday. 

Set to join Ric Flair are former Wolverines Denard Robinson, Desmond Howard, Jack Kennedy and Jon Jansen, MLB pitcher Derek Holland, former college football coach Lou Holtz, former NFL coach Mike Shanahan and NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, among others

While the work for the 2016 class is nearly finished, Michigan is still waiting on final announcements from a few players, including No. 1 prospect Rashan Gary of New Jersey.
