Did Michigan’s new Nike ‘Jumpman’ jerseys just leak?
Michigan is set to unveil its brand new Nike “Jumpman” jerseys on Tuesday.
But Friday morning, Twitter user @JHarkelroad1 posted a screenshot of a Snapchat from someone who may have gotten an early look at the Wolverines’ new digs.
The new uniforms don’t look too different, other than the Jordan logo where the Nike Swoosh would normally go. Michigan went from yellow pants to white pants for road games last season, and looks to be sticking with it.

Michigan signed a record apparel deal with Nike — at least $173.8 million through 2031 — and released images of some Jumpman gear last week. It’s the first college program to feature Michael Jordan’s iconic brand.
Michigan joins the Nike family officially on Aug. 1 when its deal with adidas expires. The football and basketball teams will wear Jordan gear, but the rest of the teams will stay under the Nike Swoosh.
Instead of the school’s traditional maize, Nike will use “Amarillo,” Spanish for yellow.
