Michigan football is in the news again, and for a change, Jim Harbaugh is not the headline.

Professional wrestling legend Ric Flair will be in Ann Arbor as a celebrity guest for Michigan's national signing day party on Wednesday.

Michigan's "Signing of the Stars" event is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET on signing day.

Check out the tweet at the top of this post from @UMichAthletics, which confirms that the Nature Boy will be coming to Ann Arbor.

Flair has shown love for Harbaugh and Michigan Football before. He congratulated Harbaugh on Twitter following Michigan's win over Florida in the Citrus Bowl.


Enjoy, Wolverine fans!
