Early on in his life, when his dad was an assistant coach at Michigan and Stanford, he went to high school in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Palo Alto, California.

Jim Harbaugh Claims Michigan’s Young Playmakers are X-Men
Michigan has a number of youthful playmakers on the roster. A.J. Henning is lightning quick, Roman Wilson is incredibly rapid and athletic, and true freshman quarterback J.J. McCarthy has lived up to expectations.
Players like these are only scraping the surface of their promise, and more time on the field will help them develop their raw skills into well-rounded and dependable performance.
Wilson, for instance, led Michigan in catches with six for 81 yards, including a spectacular challenging catch.
Speaking to the press following Michigan's 38-17 victory over Wisconsin, head coach Jim Harbaugh delivered a superhero analogy and compared the comic book characters to the team's young playmakers.
Harbaugh said about Wilson,
I don’t know how much you can tell just by looking at somebody’s eyes but the demeanor and—he’s catching the ball. Getting open, catching the ball and blocking.
The head coach added,
His blocking has improved so much. He’s grown leaps and bounds. As A.J. Henning has. There’s a lot of our players. It’s a pretty young team — it’s almost like in some of those X-Men movies where the little kid or the teenage X-Men finds their power. Now they know they have it and they’re using it. That’s really exciting to watch as a coach.
To those who are unfamiliar, the X-Men are a group of superheroes who were born with extraordinary mutant powers that set them apart from regular people. Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, The Beast, Rogue, Raven, Iceman, are among the most notable characters.
Michigan has recruited faster and shiftier athletes in recent times, such as Henning and Wilson, as well as running back Blake Corum – athletes with game-changing ability if they realize their full potential.
When you consider the growth these players have made since the season started, Harbaugh's X-Men reference isn't all that far off. Michigan's offensive has enough weaponry, or X-Men with varied abilities, to contend with top-tier college football sides.
We'll see what abilities the young players demonstrate in the coming weeks. For the time being, Michigan is 5-0 heading into next Saturday's game against Nebraska.
