His Recruiting Story:
Jon Runyan Jr., is the son of former All-Big Ten offensive lineman, Jon Runyan, who starred for the Wolverines' from 1993-95. He was offered during his U-M camp visit in June, 2013, and has never wavered on his commitment to the Wolverines. His has been on numerous campus visits, and is a lifelong Michigan fan for obvious reasons.
“Runyan under is athletic and gets out of his stance quickly. He has good foot movement and can get to the second level, knows how to position his body and he does a fantastic job of recognizing whom to block. He spins the defensive player to square himself and seal a hole in the line of scrimmage and is technically sound. He needs to increase his strength and be quicker on his initial punch so defenders don't get in on him quickly.” -- national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn
VIDEO CAPSULE REPORT:
"My dad (thought) I was going to commit the whole time. I have been telling him my whole life that I want to play football for Michigan. He wasn't surprised I committed. He was just happy and relieved. He feels awesome that I am going to Michigan." – Runyan Jr.
Runyan Jr. will most likely redshirt as he develops his body for Big Ten play. He projects as a guard, however, he could play center for the Wolverines. While he wasn’t the most highly decorated recruit, he should and will have an opportunity to become a starter when it’s all said and done. He could be the gem of the 2015 class.
