Quick Analysis: David Reese to Michigan

Taking a look at what the 2016 LB/FB brings to the Wolverines.

Michigan received its second commitment of the weekend on Saturday prior to the Spring Game in the form of 2016 linebacker/fullback David Reese (Farmington, Michigan).

Reese, along with four-star quarterback Brandon Peters, were two of the hot names heading to the weekend as players that were likely to commit.

He is a three-star prospect and the 18th ranked inside linebacker in the class of 2016, per the 247 Composite. Though, it appears Michigan is recruiting him at fullback.

The majority of his film is at linebacker, but he does look like a college fullback at his size (6-foot, 230 pounds). Reese packs a punch on both sides of the ball. As a shorter player, he is able to gain leverage by getting lower than everyone else and he keeps his feet moving on contact. He gets the occasional carry and looks comfortable when those opportunities present themselves.

What's apparent when watching Reese play on either side of the ball is that he looks like he loves contact. He will bring a tenacity to the position that should fit in really well with what Michigan wants to do in the run game.
