Kansas Jayhawks Land Notre Dame Offensive line Transfer Colin Grunhard

NCAA Football: Kansas at Baylor

The Kansas Jayhawks need serious help on the offensive line, and they’re getting that as Notre Dame offensive lineman Colin Grunhard announced he would be transferring to KU.

Grunhard made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday.


This is a homecoming of sorts for Grunhard. Grunhard went to Notre Dame after playing his high school ball at Bishop Miege in the Kansas City-area. His original recruitment put him in the class of 2017. After redshirting one season with the Irish, he will be entering his fifth season of college in 2021, but after the NCAA allowed the 2020 season to be a “free” season for players, Grunhard will still have two seasons of eligibility remaining. 

At 6’0”, 290 pounds, Colin Grunhard is a Notre Dame legacy, as his dad, Tim, won a National Title at Notre Dame and then played in the NFL. Colin was originally was a walk-on prospect, appeared in three games as a redshirt-freshman in 2018 and then seven as Notre Dame’s backup center in 2019, and appeared in three more games in 2020.

Grunhard will likely compete with Garrett Jones for the starting center job in 2021.
