Rashan Gary is the best high school prospect in the class of 2016, and he flashed that dominance on Friday evening despite the fact that his, Paramus Catholic (N.J.), lost by a score of 28-20 to IMG Academy (Fl.). Among those in attendance for his impressive performance was Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who happened to have a front-row seat for the festivities.
Gary's lone official visit to this point came to Michigan, where he witnessed a blowout victory from the Wolverines, and he had plenty of good things to say about the program after the fact. However, this type of special attention from Harbaugh (visiting during the team's bye week) can do nothing but help Michigan's case.
It remains to be seen where Gary will complete his other official visits, with teams like LSU, Georgia and Notre Dame reportedly in the mix, but Michigan appears to have the lead for the best player in the country, and that is a nice position to hold.
