Michigan Football Signing Day: Tom Brady, Derek Jeter To Make Appearances

Jim Harbaugh is pulling out all the stops for National Signing Day.

The Michigan football coach is holding a “Signing of the Stars” party for all of the team’s new recruits on Wednesday, welcoming them to the university. But the party itself isn’t what’s making headlines: It’s the guest list.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter are among a prestigious group of former Wolverines or supporters who will attend the party, according to Sports Illustrated.

Among the other notable attendees? Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski and former Michigan players Desmond Howard and Denard Robinson.

In addition to a terrific promotional benefit for the school and program, organizers hope to raise money for the ChadTough Foundation for pediatric brain tumors research, which honors Chad Carr, the grandson of former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr, who passed away in November.
