A former Ohio State star took great exception to one of Michigan's recruiting posts on Twitter


If attempting to compile a ranking of what Ohio State football players dislike most in this world, the Michigan Wolverines would be at or near the top of the list. With that in mind, it is easy to see why former Buckeyes standout Ryan Shazier is none too pleased with his collegiate rival.

On Friday, Michigan's recruiting Twitter account displayed an image of a vast collection of NFL players with the headline of "over half to the league" under Jim Harbaugh's tutelage.

No harm, no foul, right? Well, Shazier took exception to the photo included in the tweet and for good reason. That reason? The 2014 first round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers was, apparently, included in it.

To the untrained eye, it would be difficult to discern Shazier's presence, but he obviously was able to pick out his own likeness, even amongst the crowd of players. The talented linebacker clearly had no affiliation with Michigan or Jim Harbaugh during his college days, and Michigan could be in a bit of hot water here for this misstep.


In the grand scheme, this is a blip on the radar. Still, a prominent Ohio State player certainly didn't appreciate being included in anything Michigan puts out, especially when the piece of social media is designed to attract better recruits to Ann Arbor.
