Committing to the Arkansas football program this summer also meant Marcus Wimberly was turning down an opportunity to leave the state and play at Michigan.

For a three-star safety from Bauxite, a town of only 629 people, that’s no small thing. After all, the Wolverines are the all-time winningest team in college football history, have reached the College Football Playoff the last two years and are currently No. 3 in the CFP poll.

More than that, though, Wimberly had to pick up the phone and make a very uncomfortable call to Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh.
