OT Riche is emerging lineman to watch

Canton (Mich.) Plymouth offensive tackle Robert Riche has yet to receive a scholarship offer. The 6-foot-6, 265-pounder is getting plenty of interest and taking visits already this spring though.
"I was just at Toledo and it was really good," he said. "I went to Central Michigan last week and I'm going to Bowling Green, Western Michigan and Syracuse later this month."
Central Michigan was recently on the agenda and Riche discussed it more.

"That was really nice," he said. "All the coaches seemed really good, I really liked all of them and the campus is real nice. I liked how everything was condensed in the sports area."
As mentioned, to date Riche has not received offers, but he just sent out his highlight tape to many schools that are interested including Michigan State, Syracuse, Cincinnati and Western Michigan as well.
Does anyone lead early on?
"I really like Michigan State and Michigan, Central Michigan is up there too," he stated. "I was born in Michigan and you gotta love those schools, I've grown up watching them."
One other school that is coming into the picture for Riche is Army as his father played there.
"They've been talking to me and actually I've been considering it, he is a big influence on me."
With college interest growing by the day, what does Riche want in a school?
"I'm really looking for academics, I want a good business school or law, pre-law for after football," he said. "Location doesn't really matter, I don't want to be too far out in the country, that sort of thing."
Riche is coming off an impressive junior season which saw him earn all-Detroit and all-conference honors.
"My athleticism sticks out, I'm a real good athlete for my size with quick feet," he said. "I'm just trying to get better as a tackle."
