There seems to be some confusion over whether it's John Mundt or Johnny Mundt, but the official University of Oregon press release listed him as "John", so that's what we'll go with. It's more dignified, don't you think? "Johnny" sounds like some wild quarterback in Texas.
Mundt is a 6'4", 232 lbs tight end from California whose family is in the nut business, according to Mark Helfrich. Apparently the Oregon coaches learned a lot about the nut business while recruiting Mundt.
I don't know if former Duck tight end great David Paulson's family had anything to do with nuts or not, but Mundt and Paulson could be brothers. Both players are the same exact height, Paulson is just nine pounds heavier, and they appear to have the same body type.
Helfrich said that Mundt is fast, physical and has great hands. It sounds like he might be a Paulson clone, with a little more speed.
Because of the current depth at the tight end position (Colt Lyerla, Koa Ka'ai, Pharaoh Brown, Evan Baylis, Terrence Daniel, Brian Teague), expect Mundt to redshirt.
