Michigan to Unveil “Immersive” Virtual Reality Experience for Recruiting

Michigan athletics’ Twitter page released a teaser video on Tuesday promising an “immersive” experience when it comes to recruiting. In a 21st century recruiting word, you have to be ahead of the curve and Michigan is proving to be cutting edge with this new venture.

You can see the video here:

In the video, it states: “For the first time in collegiate athletics, virtual reality will be used for recruiting” and that it will premier this fall.

The video gives a brief snippet of what it is like to be a Michigan athlete (specifically, a football player) when you put on a virtual reality headset.

“I put the goggles on and it was kind of like giving me glasses to my future and what my future could look like,” said Michigan senior wide receiver Jehu Chesson.

With Michigan gaining a a lot of buzz by bringing back Wolverine alum Jim Harbaugh to coach the team, this is just another tool to use to get Michigan back in the national spotlight. It certainly looks like an exciting way to connect with the 21st century recruit.
