Another feat that the linebacker has accomplished is that he is now a Colorado Buffalo. "I went to their camp and did really well," he explained. "They offered me on Monday of last week. I sat around with some family for a while talking about it and we were all getting really excited. I called them back a few hours later to accept the offer."
At the camp, Ahles thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with his new position coaches. "I was really impressed with Coach Collins and Cabral. Coach Cabral has a lot of knowledge on the position and I really respect him and Coach Collins was really fun to be around."
The recent trip to Boulder was not his first. "I went up there in the spring to one of their practices and checked out the area. I really liked Coach Hawk and the staff and just their whole philosophy on everything. When they offered it was a no-brainer because things are about to explode up there and I want to be a part of it."
Ahles carries a 3.37 core GPA and scored an 1550 on the SAT. He would like to major in Psychology.
