The weekly update is a look into Michigan recruiting: A FAMILIAR NAME

Legacy commits always get people excited. Last week, the Wolverines picked one up from 2015 offensive lineman Jon Runyan Jr. (Philadelphia/St. Joseph’s Prep). So it’s no surprise that we’re hearing a lot of questions about the possibility of a second legacy commit in the 2015 class -- tight end Tyrone Wheatley Jr. (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius) were to commit as well.

For some kids of former players, it’s their dream to attend their father’s alma mater, but for other kids, that kind of familiarity breeds a sort of distance and desire to create his own path. Wheatley seems to be somewhere in the middle.
