Same Two on Top for Ash

Les Miles and his staff tapped into the Sunshine State's pool of talent for a defensive lineman in each of the first three years he's been at LSU, but since then the Tigers have come up empty. This year, LSU is hoping to strike it rich in Florida with a defensive lineman once again and Richard Ash is sitting in the crosshairs.

Pahokee, Fla. isn’t fertile recruiting ground for LSU when one looks at where the Tigers’ success has come from under Les Miles’ watch.

 

Just don’t tell that to LSU receivers coach D.J. McCarthy who is hoping to put an end to that trend by landing three-star defensive tackle Richard Ash.

 

Ash, a 6-foot-4, 270-pounder, has collected offers from some of the most prized programs on the college football landscape. In fact, at one point in time, his top three schools were Florida, USC and LSU, who have combined for five of the last six BCS National Championships.

 

Now, two of those schools are left standing when Ash mentions his leaders.

 

“It’s USC and LSU,” he said. “Those two are my top two but I’m not worried about a leader right now.”

 

What makes those two schools standout for Ash, who claims over 20-plus offers, are the assistant coaches who are recruiting him, along with their reputation for churning out defensive linemen to the NFL.

 

“I’ve grown pretty close to coach Mac (D.J. McCarthy) and I just talked to him last week,” Ash said. “I check up with him pretty often to see how things are going and he just keeps telling me that I’m high on their board and a big priority for them. He tells me I can be their next big D-lineman to make it big.”

 

“I’ve gotten to be real close to (USC) coach (Jethro) Franklin through all of this recruiting stuff,” Ash continued. “He’s been there for me and helped me through some tough times, and he also coaches my position so we have that in common too. He’s been there at the NFL level so he knows what it takes to get there, and USC is a good place to get you ready.”

 

Ash has not shut the door on other suitors at this point and he will use some official visits to help him reach a decision. As of now, though, only three schools are mentioned as definite visit destinations.

 

“I’m anxious to get out to LSU, West Virginia and USC because I want to see if everything is as good as I hear about,” he said. “I need to be comfortable if I decide to go far away from home so there are a lot of factors that I have to consider.”

 

Ash says he will visit West Virginia when the Mountaineers play host to East Carolina on Sept. 12 and will go to LSU when the Tigers play Florida on Oct. 10. He isn’t certain as to when he will make it to USC, but one thing that isn’t unclear to him is what it will take for a school to land his signature on Feb. 3, 2010 – National Signing Day.

 

“The campus life and environment are going to be big,” said Ash, who is considering UCLA, Oklahoma State and Minnesota for his final two officials. “I’m going to be living there and football season will end at some point, so I have to have other things to do. Academics are important and getting on the field and getting to the league (NFL) is too.”

 

Ash’s last statement hit home when he made a trip to Baton Rouge for LSU’s camp in July, and that is one thing that he keeps going back to when LSU comes to mind.

 

“I saw their academic center and it was as good as it gets, then I saw that wall with all of their All-Americans on it and it hit home with just how successful LSU has been,” he said. “That was big and that’s also why LSU is one of my favorites.”

 

Ash, who is the 46th ranked defensive tackle in the country according to Scout.com and ranked No. 61 overall in the state of Florida, says he will take his official visits before rendering a decision. He finished his junior season with 84 tackles, including seven stops for loss, four sacks and one interception.
