Name: Joey Klunder
Weight: 253 lbs.
High school: Grosse Pointe (MI) South
Position: Defensive end
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #93
Last year: I ranked Klunder #130 and said he would redshirt (LINK). He redshirted.
TTB Rating: N/A
Klunder had some military academy and FCS offers coming out of high school, but he decided to become a preferred walk-on at Michigan. After being listed at 6’4″ and 230 pounds as a freshman, he’s now down to 6’3″ . . . and up to 253. While MGoBlue.com’s website lists him as an EDGE, Klunder’s own Twitter profile says he’s a “DT.”
I don’t know where Klunder will end up, and it appears I’m not alone. But either way, 253 pounds is probably too light to play defensive tackle . . . and he’s not quick enough to be an edge pass rusher . . . and he’s probably still too light to play a 5-tech defensive end role. So for now, I think it will be another year watching from the sideline for Klunder.
Prediction: Backup defensive end
