Jim Harbaugh and his new staff continue to put an emphasis on recruiting California. The Maize & Blue has already cast a wide net of offers around the Golden State, and recently added to that number by extending a scholarship to Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) sophomore cornerback Jaylon Redd.
“The Michigan coach came to my school and talked to my coach about the offer,” Redd told The Michigan Insider. “I was excited to just know that I’m being nationally recruited and they have a lot of players that they have put into the NFL. Jim Harbaugh is a former NFL head coach and me personally, I’m a 49er fan. So I would like to definitely meet him.”
“I honestly want to look into Michigan a lot,” said Redd. “I honestly don’t know much about the program. I know that Charles Woodson went there and I know they are one of the top schools for putting guys in the league but other than that, not tons. I want to learn more about them. I want to and look forward to going to Michigan to check out the school in the future.”
As exciting as he is to see his stock rising so rapidly, Redd is keeping his priorities in order.
“I just ended my 7-on-7 season and I’ve been competing in different camps. I have a weekly training facility I go to called EM speed and they help with my mobility and agility. They will also help me use my hips more and stay balanced. I’ll also be working with J.R. Redmond and Chris Claiborne for some running back work too.”
