Meet new 2016 commit Ahmmon Richards

Meet new 2016 commit Ahmmon Richards

Nash Williams
Just when you thought the Miami Hurricanes 2016 recruiting class couldn't get any better, it did.

On Tuesday, Wellington High School athlete Ahmmon Richards committed to Miami adding to the already stellar class the Hurricanes have put together.

"Miami really caught my eye with all the love they showed and how they do things. They have had a lot of recruiting momentum lately and that's just really cool to see them getting all of these guys. I had to be a part of that," said Richards.

"I'm just real excited about all those guys. Miami has done a great job."

Now, Richards says it is his turn to find some guys that he wants to bring to Miami with him.

"I plan on getting on YouTube when I can and watch some of these guys' highlights to know who I need to recruit."

While Richards is very versatile and can play safety, he says he has committed to Miami as a wide receiver and would compare his playing style to AJ Green of the Cincinatti Bengals.

"I would say I compare to him because of my ability to go vertical and go make a great play. I've got some speed and I know I have great hands. I'm explosive and the other defense knows that I can make a big play anytime."

Even though it's early on in the recruiting process and Richards fields offers from the likes of Tennessee, Ohio State, Louisville, and Georgia to name a few, he made it known that he is 100% committed to the Miami program and is ecstatic about the future.

"I knew it was time for me to commit. I got that urge and that feeling and I knew I had to commit to become a Hurricane."

One of Wellington's assistant coaches, Chris Forte, described Richards a little more from a coach's viewpoint.

"As a player, he is a sponge. He soaks up everything you say and that makes him very coachable. He is very explosive and is a playmaker who can score anytime the ball is in his hands," said Forte.

"As a person, He is quiet but leads by example. Family is very important to him and will do anything you ask of him. I had him playing outside linebacker his freshman year because I needed him on my defense. That's the kind of kid he is," Forte added.

Damn, Nash. You're on the ball with these guys. Nice work.
 
Great stuff, thanks.

It's interesting that he committed as a WR, not as an ATH. Have to assume we're done at WR for 2016 if we can hang onto our current commits, right?

Richards seems to have a great attitude and it's impressive that he's already thinking about trying to help recruit others to join him.
 
WELCOME TO DA U!!!

Kid is a game changer at WR. I hate comparisons., but he is Coley level

Love this kids film and upside. 2016 class is unreal already wow. Also, wonder if Carroll & Coley are telling these guys to get their spots locked down!
 
Great write up Nash. Welcome to THE U young man. The class you have joined is looking like the greatest we have even had.
 
Taking back ownership of Palm Beach. Getting some from Tampa. Plucking some prizes from Orlando and J'ville. Hoping Belle Glade and Pahokee come back to life. Snag a few from Ft. Myers. Pluck Penn, NJ and Cali. Steal a couple from La. and Tx. Establish solid DL recruiting and we the **** again. No reason any of those backwater SEC schools should be able to recruit better than us.

I sure hope Belle Glade and Pahokee come back to life. They used to churn out great talent on a yearly basis. Ever since what happened over there in the muck area. Hasn't been the same.

Kids from that area are fast, they chase rabbits as their hobby. Build on speed.
