Julio Jones was firmly in the college football limelight during the month of June with his controversial satellite-camp tour. He managed to draw even more attention to himself with his attire — specifically, his large collection of sports jerseys.
It’s true, he is a big fan of player jerseys. With his camp tour complete, who had sparred with Harbaugh in the days leading up to the visit.
It came as no surprise that Harbaugh pulled on Kaepernick’s No. 7 49ers jersey at a camp in California. After all, the two helped one another to Super Bowl XLVII.
Harbaugh’s visit to the University of South Alabama seemed to be a troll attempt directed at Alabama coach Nick Saban, here’s a look at the NFL threads he sported as he made his way around the country. Harbaugh sported the Falcons jersey for Jones, who played for Saban at Alabama. Harbaugh said he was just paying his respects to a player the 49ers wanted to draft when he was their head coach.
Don’t know if you know this, the Falcons swooped into the spot ahead of the 49ers and took Julio Jones in the 2011 NFL Draft. The 49ers drafted Aldon Smith, and Watt was selected four spots later by the Houston Texans.
At a camp in Kansas City, Harbaugh paid homage to his former quarterback, who is now a member of the Chiefs. In Harbaugh’s first season as 49ers coach in 2011, Smith helped lead the team to its first winning season, NFC West title and playoff win since the 2002 season.
Although his NFL career is just getting started, featured a sweet Archie Manning New Orleans Saints throwback. Manning was a standout quarterback at Ole Miss before going on to play for the Saints.
While in Baltimore, Harbaugh pulled off a two-jersey day. First, he started the with the jersey of Baltimore Orioles great Cal Ripken.
Then, Harbaugh changed and went with the Baltimore Ravens’ 13-time Pro Bowl linebacker.
Of course, but Jim Harbaugh’s brother is the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. Don’t know if you know this, either, but Jim and John coached against each other in a Super Bowl.
Harbaugh and the late Seau were San Diego Chargers teammates toward the end of Harbaugh’s career. Following Seau’s death in 2012, Harbaugh said he felt moved to ask Seau to trade jerseys after Harbaugh’s last career game.
Harbaugh’s visit to Pearl, Miss, Mariota’s stellar college career at Oregon was enough to make him a celebrity in his hometown of Honolulu. Perhaps the jersey choice will help him out in recruiting.Thomas emerged as a regular starter for the Dolphins for the first time in his career last season.
At a camp in Tennessee, Harbaugh sported the jersey of the former San Francisco 49ers and current Titans tight end. Walker once called Harbaugh “crazy” for dressing up in full pads for a practice with the 49ers.
When the Wolverines’ satellite camp tour made its way to Jacksonville, Fla., Harbaugh donned the jersey of one of four Jacksonville Jaguars from UM. Jaguars running back Denard Robinson, who was a quarterback at UM, amassed more than 10,000 yards of total offense there from 2008-2010.
In 2007, when Harbaugh was in his first year at Stanford, Manningham was in his last at Michigan — and lit up the Big Ten with 1,174 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Manningham spent his last two pro seasons playing for Harbaugh in San Francisco.
Harbaugh coached Thomas for three seasons at Stanford, from 2009-2012, before taking the San Francisco 49ers job.
