Say what you will about Jim Harbaugh, but there's no denying this: the man keeps some impressive company.

Michigan is set to host a variety of celebrities and athletes for its Signing of the Stars event on Wednesday afternoon.

Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, and Desmond Howard headline a group of stars set to introduce the newest class of Wolverines football recruits.

The event will be streamed live on The Players' Tribune, Jeter's athlete-driven website.

It's also serving as a fundraiser for the Chad Tough Foundation .

Harbaugh's brother, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, will be on-hand. NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, former Tigers manager Jim Leyland, wrestling legend Ric Flair, coaches Mike Shanahan and Lou Holtz, and musician Josh Gracin will also grace the stage at Hill Audotorium.

Michigan football greats Denard Robinson and Jon Jansen will join Howard and Brady as former Wolverines spending the day back in Ann Arbor.

WXYZ's Brad Galli will be a part of the presentation, helping announce with recently-added master of ceremonies, comedian Randy Sklar.
