Roh is profiled from 1:25-2:00:
Rich Rodriguez on Roh: “He’s got a great motor. … He’s going to be a guy that will grow to 250-some pounds and be a great pass-rusher for us. I think he’s got an opportunity to make an immediate impact. … He’s got a lot of family on the Western part of the state.”
Roh on himself: “My strengths are my ability to read an offense. My biggest asset is my mind. I study a lot of film. My speed is also a strength. Getting off the edge is important for a defensive end.”
On Committing to U of M: “I just knew in my heart the this is where I can maximize my potential, physically, mentally.”
On Rich Rodriguez: "He’s just really a guy that I could go into his office and talk to about anything … he’s a guys I’d hang out with on a Friday night."
Scouts, Inc.: “Roh is a good defensive end prospect as he seems to handle all facets of the position well. He is a decent sized kid that will need to get into a college weight program and add bulk, but has a good frame to add size. He is usually pretty easy to find on film because he is the one in the textbook sprinters stance.. Roh is a productive and sound player. As he physically develops he has the tools to be a good and accountable defensive player at the college level. He may not always be the most athletic kid lined up, but he knows how to play the game and get himself in situations to be successful.”
TAKKLE: “The ideal edge guy. He is active, uses his hands well to get off the blocker and attacks the QB. When he adds some good weight at the next level he’ll be hard to handle against the pass and the run.”
Under-Armour All American Profile: “A well-rounded defensive end prospect with good mental and physical intangibles. He gets off the ball quickly and does a good job shooting his hands and creating separation at the point of attack. Equally impressive chasing plays down from the backside with his good speed. He combines good quickness and hand technique getting around blockers and to the quarterback as a pass-rusher. Roh is only going to get bigger and stronger at the next level and has some of the better upside in this defensive end class.”
