Has Luther had a chance to take in any Jr Days.

"I went to LSU's."

How did it go?

"It was good. I like the stuff I saw like the weight room and study hall. That caught my eye."

Does Ambrose plan to take anymore Spring visits?

"I would like to down to Ole Miss sometime this Spring. If not this Spring, I will for sure be down there for their camp."

What has Ambrose interested in the Rebels?

"I just like their school. I have always liked their school. I grew up watching their games. I like the way they use their backs in their offense. I just like how they play. I went down and watched them play LSU this year. They play with a lot of intensity, and I liked how their staff coached with a lot of emotion. I think it would be fun to play for a team like that."

Anybody else Luther would like to check out?

"Auburn. I want to visit their school and Alabama."

What does Ambrose like about Auburn?

"It is just a school I want to visit. Alabama too. I just want to check it out."

What will Ambrose look at while he is on his visits?

"Just the school itself, like the study halls. Things outside of football mostly. I do want a good weight room and facilities though."

The 5' 10", 165 pound back had over 1, 600 rushing yards as a junior and also scored 5 TD's in the special teams department.

What does the All-Metro and State performer consider to be his strengths?

"I think my special teams play is really good. Once I get by the first blocker running the football; I am gone. I do not give up on plays either. I am full speed, all of the time. Even when I have people on me."

What are Ambrose's goals for his senior campaign?

"I want to do better than last year. I am looking for a better year. We have a young team. We are developing, but overall, we are going to get better and better."

Luther reports a 2.9 GPA and will take the ACT test for the first time in April.
