Ashcraft Makes No Commitment

North Carolina running back Albert Ashcraft enjoyed his official visit to South Carolina this weekend, but he did not make a commitment to the Gamecocks. Could the Tigers now be in a position to accept his potential verbal commitment?

Albert Aschraft, who was close to pulling the trigger on a commitment to Clemson last weekend, enjoyed his time in Columbia this weekend, but did not make a verbal commitment to the Gamecocks.

"I did not commit this weekend," said Ashcraft in an interview with CUTigers.com Sunday morning. "I had a good time and now I'm going to get some visits from some coaches this week."

"I want to have a decision by Thursday if possible," added Ashcraft.

Ashcraft's situation remains intriguing because Clemson did not receive an official visit from running back Jamaal Edwards this weekend. Edwards was considered to be the top running back on the board for the Tigers this year.

Hence, it now becomes clear that if the Tigers are going to take a running back in the 2004 class, it's going to be Ashcraft.

"It's all 50-50 right now between Clemson and South Carolina," stated the Monroe star.

As it stands now, the Tigers are looking to load up on the offensive and defensive lines, where as many as 13 propsects could be signed on February 4th. This could mean that Ashcraft will have to consider his options outside of Clemson at the present time.

CUTigers.com should have more on Ashcraft's situation later this evening. We will continue to keep you updated on Albert Ashcraft, right up through signing day.
