Michigan Camp Day 3: OL & DL Top Performers

Jon Runyan Jr., 2015 OL, St. Joseph's Prep (Philadelphia, Pa.)—The son of former U-M offensive tackle, Jon Runyan Sr., Runyan Jr. was offered by the Wolverines' today after a strong two day performance. Part of the reason behind his offer was his strong showing in the 1-on-1s each day. While he's not as big as his father, Runyan Jr. comes in at 6-foot-3, 245-pounds, and still looks like he's growing. He showed good feet today and was able to stay in front of his opponent in the trench battles. He'll need to add strength, but has two years to add bulk before college.

Erik Swenson, 2016 OT, Downers Grove South (Ill.) High—There is no question that Swenson looks the part of a future left tackle in college, after all he stands at 6-foot-6, 285-pounds. He had a good day at camp and showcased why he already has notable offers from Michigan, Ohio State and Notre Dame, to name a few. He has work to do on his technique but that will only get better with coaching and time. He's not as strong as the upperclassman in camp, but does a good job of getting in front of his opponent. He has tremendous upside and is only going into his sophomore season. He will be at camp one more day.

Chuma Edoga, 2014 OT, McEachern (Powder Springs, Ga.) High—Edoga had another solid day at Michigan's camp. While he won't "wow" you in drills, he is a different player in 1-on-1 match ups. He rarely got beat and had a knack for stonewalling his opponent. He has good footwork and is showing why he has notable offers from Clemson and Florida State. He will be camping the rest of the week.

Jamie Herr, 2014 OG, Eastern Christian (Elkton, Md.) High—A unknown guy before camp, Herr made a name for himself today. At 6-foot-5, 265-pounds, Herr won the majority of his 1-on-1 matchups and displayed good feet and power throughout the camp. Already with BCS offers on table, Herr solidified himself as a major player moving forward.

Kalani Vakameilalo, 2014 DT, Kapolei (Hawaii) High—The Hawaiian defensive tackle came to the camp unknown on Monday and put on one of the best defensive efforts of the day. Today was no different for the 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive tackle. Again, Vakameilalo was able to use his bulrush attack to get thought the offensive front in the 1-on-1s today. He lost a little steam towards the end, but altogether had another solid day at camp.
