Luke Schoonmaker is headed into his 5th season with the Michigan football program. In 2021, he had his best year yet, making 17 catches for 165 yards and 3 touchdowns across 9 games.

Now, with 2022 around the corner, Schoonmaker has benefited from the Wolverines’ strength and conditioning program, led by Ben Herbert. According to’s Ryan Zuke, the tight end “barely recognize[d]” a photo of himself from his freshman year, as he’s bulked up in the weight room.

“I came in around I think 220-ish,” he said. “I’m like 250 (pounds) now and I feel great with where I’m at. I feel fast and physical at the same time, We do those before and after pictures, and everybody just looks like a monster after you go through what he puts us through.”

With what could be his final season in Ann Arbor around the corner, Schoonmaker hopes he and fellow TE Erick All can capitalize on the success they enjoyed last year. All registered 437 yards and 2 touchdowns on 38 catches in 2021.

“I think there’s been a standard set for both me and Erick [All] with I guess you could say the spotlight,” he said. “That’s been presented to us, but I think there’s been that standard that’s been set. Now we know how to practice, how to play and how to hold each other accountable with our playing.”
