College football recruiting has been in a dead period.

The ban on coaches' contact with student athletes ends on Thursday.

Jim Harbaugh is planning on bursting out of the dead period with a sleepover.

Rockford kicker Quinn Nordin is committed to Penn State, but Michigan's head coach plans to change that.

“Under the exact rules, he’s going to be at my house at 12:01 he said. That’s when it’s legal for him to be at my house,” Nordin told Scout's Allen Trieu.

Quinn is ranked by Rivals as the top high school kicker in the country.

Cornered by TMZ Sports after the State of the Union on Tuesday, Harbaugh said he's not allowed to comment on specific high school players.

"It's great to be a part of it," he said.

"We're going to wake up in the morning and, if my parents say go to school, we're going to go to school, and Coach Harbaugh will be in every single class with me, sitting right next me and I'll be doing my schoolwork," Nordin told Scout.

There is one possible addition to their plans.

If Nordin's parents don't make him go to school, Harbaugh will take the high school kicker to Ann Arbor for the day.
