Michigan has picked up their first two commits for the 2015 class in less than 24 hours.
Offensive lineman Jon Runyan Jr. out of St. Joseph High School in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey announced Tuesday morning that he will become Michigan’s second commit of their 2015 recruiting class.
At 6-4, 250 pounds, Runyan is the 37th ranked offensive tackle in the 2015 class, according to 247 Sports. If the name sounds familiar, well, that’s because it is. He is the son of former Michigan great Jon Runyan.
After being offered by Michigan on June 18th, Runyan made it pretty clear that Michigan would be where he ended up, and there was little drama to be had in his decision.
Just entering his junior season, Runyan has a ton of room to grow obviously. He should fill out nicely and be a good player along that offensive line just as his father was. This is a good get for Brady Hoke and the Wolverines.
The other player that committed just hours before Runyan was kicker Andrew David out of Washington High School in Massilion, Ohio.
Brady Hoke has showed that he has no issues offering special teams players a scholarship, as he did so with long snapper Scott Sypniewski in the 2013 class.
