Jon Runyan Jr.: "I felt I did alright. I thought I could've done better in my forty time, but I was pretty happy with my shuttle and my vertical and my one-on-ones, there were some big boys out there. But I was able to try my best and I think I did alright."
GBW: First off, can you give me your height and weight?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "Right now, I am 6-foot-3, 242-pounds."
GBW: How did you do individually this season?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "Individually, I think I did alright. I only let up one or two sacks this season. And as a group unit we rushed for over 2,000 yards or we blocked for over 2,000 yards. We did pretty good and I did pretty good."
GBW: Do you consider yourself more of a run blocking lineman out there?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "I wouldn't say so. I consider myself more of a pass blocking lineman. But you have to run block, you have to run the ball."
GBW: Obviously, your father has some strong ties to the University of Michigan; he played there. What're your thoughts on Michigan? Did you grow up a Michigan fan?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "I have always grown up a Michigan fan. I try to go to as many games as I can. But sometimes my schedule doesn't work out. I watch Michigan basketball, Michigan football—like I just Michigan. I went to the camp there over the summer and I enjoyed it, it was fun."
GBW: How was that camp performance? Did you get a chance to talk to the coaches at all?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "I talked to coach Funk the offensive line coach. He was really helpful with helping me with my technique. Cause that was last year and now I started on the offensive line this year. I am only a sophomore. He really helped me with technique. It really helped."
GBW: What do you feel you need to improve to raise your recruitment interest? Is it more technique work?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "Yeah definitely, right now, I need to put a lot more weight on. Because I am pretty small compared to those guys put there (at the combine) looking at them, I am pretty small compared to them. But if I get the technique down, I am pretty sure I'll do alright."
GBW: Besides Penn State, is there any other schools out there showing you interest?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "I have gotten some letters from Wisconsin. I have talked to North Carolina and Old Dominion and some other schools."
GBW: What is the conversation like with your dad? Are you trying to become a second generation Wolverine?
Jon Runyan Jr.: "My dad says wherever it's free, but hopefully it's Michigan. And he says he cannot send me to Ohio State, anything but that."
GBW: Going forward, what is your plan for the upcoming summer camp circuit?
Jon Runyan Jr.: " "Not right now, But I am just going to try to get in the weight room more. We're going back to school and are going to start lifting more. Hopefully, I'm going to try to improve my technique.
