Not surprisingly, given the scant amount of time he had to recruit, Jim Harbaugh's first recruiting class at Michigan is not a celebrated one. But it does have some familiar names.
The sons of two former Michigan stars who went on to play in the NFL signed with the Wolverines on Wednesday: G Jon Runyan Jr. and TE Tyrone Wheatley Jr.
Tyrone Wheatley Sr. is Michigan's new running backs coach.
The younger Runyan (6-foot-4, 275 pounds) is from Philadelphia St. Joseph's Prep. While his dad was an offensive tackle, Runyan Jr. seems likely to remain an interior lineman.
The younger Wheatley (6-6, 260) played at Buffalo's Canisius High. While he also played defensive end in high school, he is ticketed for tight end with the Wolverines. He was the consensus No. 1 recruit in the state of New York and is considered one of the top 15 tight ends nationally.
