I was at a party last weekend where I met a guy who had been recruited when Harbaugh was at Stanford.
Interestingly, he thought Harbaugh was a cool guy—and his parents, as well his brother, who was also being recruited, also liked Harbaugh very much. In fact, this guy came very close to going to Stanford but his brother felt more strongly about another school (which they decided to go to together).
The one unusual thing: Harbaugh was carrying the BMF wallet from “Pulp Fiction.” But even the recruit’s parents thought that was very cool.
I know it’s just the impressions of one former recruit but I found it fascinating.
