"Our season hasn't started off like we had hoped. We are 0-1-1 so far. I am not sure of my stats, I know I had 13 tackles and 10 rushes for 60 yards last game. I am not sure on the others."
I asked Ashley if he has received a lot of calls so far. "Not a lot so far. Notre Dame, Georgia, Tulane, Tennessee, Michigan State. Those are the main guys." I asked McConnell if he has received any new offers yet. "Last week, Coach Willingham called and offered me a scholarship. He is a very smart guy. He is very father-line. He is just all business and very intelligent."
Ashley last told us that this offer would make him very happy and it did. "I am very excited about it. I am scheduled for an official visit there on December 6th. I can't wait to get up there. I really like Notre Dame. I have talked to my Mom about it quite a bit and I am close to picking Notre Dame." I asked Ashley if he could commit the next time he spoke with Notre Dame. "It's possible, I just need to talk to them again."
Comments. I think a lot of people are wondering why other schools do not seem as interested. All I can tell you is what I have heard. I have heard he is an outstanding player. Someone told me he looked like Jerome Bettis. I am not sure why others are not on him other than I wonder if all schools are wondering the same thing. Everyone is waiting to see if other schools offer. I hope Notre Dame snatches this guy up. They don't appear to have many other options at fullback.
