Michigan once made such a terrible recruiting pitch coaches were thrown out of Nebraska commit's home

Michigan has been making the rounds and by many accounts is doing very well on the recruiting trail. Lets hope the Wolverines avoid a repeat this classic recruiting faux paus from earlier this year.

The Wolverines and defensive line coach Greg Mattison made a last gasp effort to get three-star defensive end Daishon Neal — a Nebraska commit — to flip his commitment away from the Cornhuskers, but it backfired in the worst possible way.

Oh no, Michigan. You can't do that.

Rule number one of recruiting: DO NOT INSULT THE RECRUIT IN HIS OWN HOME. There are certain things you just can't do, and insinuating that a recruit is not smart enough to actually get into school is pretty high up that list. If that is a part of the Michigan recruiting handbook, they should probably rip that page out.
