FSNextTV: Ashton Shumpert

Ashton Shumpert emerged on the Mississippi prep football scene after a strong freshman campaign. Three years late, Shumpert is considered one of the Magnolia State's top football talents. See senior footage of Shumpert in action in this FOXSportsNext video presentation.

Ashton Shumpert is a true north and south runner. When things get congested in the middle, he will bounce it outside, but it is clear Shumpert likes running between the tackles.

Most of his longer runs come right up the middle where he has to power through arm tackles and into the open field.

Shumpert displays a genuine toughness and uses it to finish runs.

Defensive backs have a very tough time with Shumpert when he breaks into the secondary. In some clips, the defensive player gives up on the play rather than engaging Shumpert head on.

A capable receiver out of the backfield, Shumpert is more than just a one cut runner.

Despite his physical presence, Shumpert looks for the cut back lanes and does his best to make the most of every play.
