"I actually just got back," Ashley told InsideTheVille.com. "It was a really nice visit and I learned a lot about what they have to offer."
Ashley, who made his first trip to check out the Cardinals in April, explained that this trip strengthened Louisville's chances of eventually gaining his signature next February.
"I plan to major in business and I know that Louisville has one of the top 15 business schools in the country, so it was good to see that part of things this time."
While Ashley told us on Tuesday that academics is a top priority, his latest visit didn't focus solely on U of L's academic opportunities.
"I sat down with all of the offensive coaches and Coach Kragthorpe individually for about 15 minutes each," Ashley said. "They have an offense that involves everybody and they rotate guys in and out, so there is always an opportunity for someone to play."
"This was a really good visit for me, because I really feel like I have better understanding of how I would fit in to the offense and I learned a lot more about the school."
The 5-foot-9, 185-pound back has rushed for over 3,000 yards and nearly 50 touchdowns the past seasons, helping St. Xavier win the state championship as a sophomore and a 10-2 record last fall.
