Jameis on Jim Harbaugh: I Wish I Could Have Played For Him


Jim Harbaugh is a bright man. I’m not sure who set up the tutorial between George Whitfield’s pupil Jameis Winston and Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh — but it’s likely to yield a few five-star prospects in the future.

Winston and Bryce Petty spent time in a classroom setting with him and U-M passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch, prepping for what they’ll encounter this week.

Winston called the “experience a blessing.”

That was a blessing, to meet a guy like that,” Winston, who starred at Florida State, said in an mgoblue.com video. “I made a reference, when he was in Indianapolis in ’95, he had a great year that year. It was just an honor to meet him and all of his accomplishments and the type of coach that he is.

“I wish I could have played for him.”

They were in Ann Arbor under the tutelage of quarterback guru George Whitfield, who worked as a 49ers intern last summer and has known Harbaugh for more than a decade. Whitfield is based in San Diego, which is where most of the players’ off-season training occurred until this week.
