Former Michigan defensive lineman Richard Ash was officially announced as an addition to the Western Michigan football program on Monday.

Following the footsteps of 2013 transfer Mike Jones, Western Michigan announced another Michigan transfer addition to the football program on Monday.

Former defensive lineman Richard Ash elected to forgo his final year of eligibility at Michigan and transfer elsewhere at the conclusion of the 2013 season. The Broncos announced the addition on their website on Monday. Graduating from Michigan during the spring, Ash is allowed to transfer and be eligible immediately without penalty. He is also currently enrolled in graduate courses at Western.

During his career at Michigan, the Pahokee, Fla., native appeared in 14 games during and was featured in mostly as a reserve role while also making contributions with the special teams. He made his first career tackle against Ohio State in 2013.

Ash was rated the no. 25 defensive tackle and was also the 49th best player to come out of the state of Florida during the 2010 recruiting class according to Rivals.com's recruiting rankings.
