This marks Harbaugh’s first ever invite-only type gathering as head coach of the Wolverines, and he will be inviting some rather prominent names for the event on Wednesday.

Among those in attendance with Harbaugh will be former Michigan quarterback and current New England Patriot Tom Brady, along with former New York Yankee great Derek Jeter.

Other notable attendees from the event include retired professional wrestling great Ric Flair, Michigan-born NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, Texas Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland and former U-M football standouts Desmond Howard, Denard Robinson and Jon Jansen.

Introducing a top five nationally-ranked recruiting class with this cavalcade of stars will surely add to the excitement level in Ann Arbor. The Players’ Tribune will be streaming the event live from Hill Auditorium, beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Born & raised in the mitten. Grew up in Traverse City, but moved down to the Redford, MI area after my Dad tragically passed away in 1999 because that's where he was being buried and we wanted to be down there with him. I'm an avid Detroit sports fan, growing up in the state of Michigan and having such a solid block of teams to root for is something special. Iv'e always liked discussing Detroit sports whether it be about the past, the present or even what the future holds for Michigan sports teams. It's a long time coming as I am very excited to be apart of the DSN team and be able to construct interesting features to be posted for Detroit Sports fans to read/discuss about.
