Leslie County OL Blake Asher says he will play his college football at Louisville

Leslie County High School offensive lineman Blake Asher has given a commitment to the University of Louisville football program. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Asher is one of the state's top linemen.

The University of Louisville football team added a fourth offensive line pledge in the Class of 2016.

Leslie County High School offensive lineman Blake Asher said he will play his college football at U of L, picking the Cardinals over Austin Peay and several other schools in the recruiting process.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Asher plays both sides of the ball at Leslie County. He projects as an offensive lineman in college.

Asher, who is expected to start his career at U of L as a walk-on, has been on campus more than a half-dozen times since last spring. He attended U of L's summer camp and performed well.

He joins Robbie Bell and James DeMatto of Georgia and junior-college prospect Dwayne Wallace as the offensive linemen in the '16 class. U of L now has 22 players that have pledged to the Cardinals in the class.
