Harbaugh taking Michigan to South Africa this spring

After visiting Italy and France over the past two springs, Michigan is taking a break from Europe and hitting South Africa in 2019. Wolverines director of football operations Mark Taurisani made the announcement on Tuesday.

Jim Harbaugh started the field trips, which are sponsored by Michigan boosters, as part of an educational experience for Wolverines players. The 2017 Italy trip was incorporated with Michigan's Spring Practice but the Wolverines did not practice in France last year and will not practice in South Africa this year, either.

Specific dates and tour sites have not been announced.
