Richard Ash - UM’s Newest Commitment

Here is a short summary overview of potential Michigan recruit Richard Ash of Pahokee Florida.

Overview: Richard is a classic Coach Rod recruit, a bit of a tweener who runs well and shows a decided defensive mentality. Richard is a solid athlete who is versatile, being capable of playing defensive end or defensive tackle at the college level.

Strengths: Richard has good get off and a solid first step. He uses his hands very well and shows a nice swim move. Richard separates well with his hands and gets good penetration. He has good stop and go and retraces his path well.

Needs Work: Richard tends to play a bit high and therefore sometimes loses leverage. He also gets too far up field and must learn to play laterally. Richard shows just average closing speed and burst.

Ash reminds us of former Michigan player James Hall
