Breaking down commitment of EDGE Aymeric Koumba

Breaking down commitment of EDGE Aymeric Koumba

Michigan football added another talented pass rusher on Friday and Aymeric Koumba is a recruit with tremendous upside.

Some Michigan football fans might not be excited about the addition of the 2023 EDGE rusher Aymeric Koumba, who committed to the Wolverines on Friday, but they should be because the talented pass rusher from France is a freak with nearly unlimited upside.

Koumba was discovered by Mike Elston and the Michigan football coaching staff at a camp this June and he even garnered some interest from Ohio State even though the Buckeyes never offered.

Michigan football hosted Koumba for a visit and the expert projections followed soon after. Now, the commitment of the 6-foot-5, 230-pound EDGE is official and while he’s not ranked, there is reason to like this commitment, and here’s what it means for Michigan football:

Breaking down talented Aymeric Koumba

Michigan football has now landed three explosive athletes at the EDGE position this month. Enow Etta committed earlier this week, along with 6-foot-7 Collins Acheampong earlier this month.

Add in Koumba, who runs the 40 in 4.7 and has a 7-foot-2 wing span, and Elston and the Wolverines are going to have a lot of work with in terms of talent to mold.

Etta is ranked 125th overall in the 247 sports composite rankings and he’s probably the one of the three that will be expected to play right away.

Acheampong is going to have a chance to show what he can do against elite competition this season and Koumba, according to his coach Brandon Collier, said that if he was from America and not France he would be a four-star recruit.

In terms of the team rankings, this isn’t going to make a huge impact, but this is a scenario where you need to trust the evaluations of the coaching staff and when you consider the edge trio Michigan football has committed, there is plenty to be excited about.

Each of these guys saw what Michigan did with Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo and there’s at least hope that the Wolverines can get similar production out of this group down the line.
