He has climbed a tree and had sleepovers at the homes of recruits, and now you can add wrestling to the list of things Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is willing to do to connect with a high school recruit.

Phillip Paea, a three-star defensive lineman from Berrien Springs, visited Michigan on Wednesday for the Northwestern game and told Brandon Justice, a recruiting analyst for MaizeNBrew.com, he and Harbaugh wrestled. Harbaugh had just attended WWE Raw in Detroit on Monday.

“(Harbaugh) was real interesting,” Paea told the site, later adding that Harbaugh won the match. “We actually wrestled for a little bit. He’s definitely one coach you won’t find at any other school.”
