ATHENS — First Jim Harbaugh took a shot on Twitter at Kirby Smart. Now the Michigan coach is bringing his road show to Smart’s back yard.
Harbaugh is planning to hold a satellite recruiting camp at Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, according to the Detroit News.
The Dekalb County high school is located about 75 miles away from the Butts-Mehre building.
Cedar Grove head coach Jimmy Smith told the News that he was expecting between 300 and 500 participants from around Georgia.
“It’s an opportunity to see something they would never see before,” Smith told The Detroit News on Thursday. “A lot of kids only get to go to the same schools, the same area. I’ve always liked Michigan. It’s a great program.”
Harbaugh held a week of spring practice in Florida earlier this month. Smart, answering a question from a fan at the Macon Touchdown Club, expressed some concerns about it. Harbaugh responded with a tweet that called out “the Georgia coach.”
Harbaugh is set to hold four satellite camps in June, starting with Cedar Grove. He goes to Mississippi, Alabama and Dallas after that.
There is a connection between Cedar Grove and Michigan: Wolverines linebacker signee Elysee Mbem-Bosse is a product of Cedar Grove.
