How Harbaugh's 1st Michigan QB recruit ended up on other team

  How Harbaugh's 1st Michigan QB recruit ended up on other team Brandon Peters seemed primed to be a perennial starter at Michigan. So, how did Jim Harbaugh's first QB recruit at U-M end up at Illinois?As the first quarterback signee of the Jim Harbaugh era at Michigan, Peters faced tremendous pressure to one day lead the Wolverines’ offense into a new age. When that opportunity materialized almost 22 months after he enrolled, it soon vanished when he suffered a blow to the head against Wisconsin in November 2017. It was a stroke of bad luck, but an indelible one, too. Nothing thereafter would be the same.

As a bench boss with a history of success in the NFL, Harbaugh's name is often discussed with respect to open coaching positions in the pros. However, he insisted that he's committed to the development of the players on the Wolverines football team.

The former NFL Coach of the Year has been in Ann Arbor since 2015. He has amassed a 43-16 overall record with Michigan, including a 5-2 start to the 2019 campaign.

Harbaugh and the Wolverines are coming off a tough 28-21 loss to No. 6 Penn State that dropped them to 19th in the AP poll. It doesn't get any easier, as the 55-year-old's squad will host No. 8 Notre Dame this weekend.
