Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson recently told an absurd story about why he didn’t play for Michigan and Jim Harbaugh.

Wilson played his college football for the Georgia Bulldogs before becoming a first round pick of the Titans in 2020. Michigan and Alabama were both schools very much in the mix for his services. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

During an episode of “Bussin’ with the Boys,” Wilson broke down why didn’t go to Alabama. He claimed he didn’t play for the Crimson Tide because Nick Saban didn’t give him a hug.

The reason for not going to Michigan is a hell of a lot more entertaining. Wilson claimed he snubbed the Wolverines because Jim Harbaugh wore cleats inside his house!

“Remember when [Michigan] first got the deal with Jordan? [Harbaugh] just wouldn’t take off his cleats. He came to my in-home visit with cleats on his feet. And I have hardwood floors. And he’s just walking around with cleats bro. After that it was over,” Wilson explained, according to Barstool Sports.

Why am I not surprised? Why the hell am I not surprised that Jim Harbaugh showed up to a recruit’s house wearing cleats and then proceeded to not take them off?

This is a first ballot hall of fame Jim Harbaugh story. Imagine losing one of the best recruits in America because you wore cleats indoors.

Wilson’s recruitment stories are just more proof as to why college football is the greatest sport on the planet. We have players not going to schools because of handshakes and cleats.

You couldn’t make up that cleat story if you tried.

At the end of the day, it all worked out for Wilson. He dominated at Georgia and now he’s straight paid in the NFL. Not a bad life to be living!
