On Wednesday morning, Michigan flipped a top recruit from Alabama. Five-star safety Daxton Hill was originally committed to the Wolverines before he flipped to Alabama in December.
That flip didn’t last long before Hill decided Ann Arbor was the right place for him to play his collegiate football career. Hill announced on Wednesday morning that he’s signing with Jim Harbaugh and company.
The signing led to one of Jim Harbaugh’s sons to call out Paul Finebaum, who has been critical of Harbaugh in the past. Finebaum said Harbaugh never beat Nick Saban for a recruit – which he just did.
James Harbaugh wanted the world to know that’s not the case anymore.

Hill highlights a top-10 recruiting class for the Wolverines and finally gave Harbaugh an edge over Nick Saban – at least for one recruit.
We’ll have to wait and see if Finebaum comments on the flip of Hill, though he likely won’t give any credit to Harbaugh in the end.
