Ashton is a tremendous cover cornerback blessed with impressive speed.  He is currently attending a camp at Penn State and hopes to add the Nittany Lions to his list of schools that have offered.

"My best time, 4.38, was at the Nike Camp," Ashton said when asked how fast he has run the 40-yard dash.  "At the Ohio State camp, it was 4.41 seconds."

Youboty played corner back for Klein High School last year.

"This year, I'm playing receiver for my team too.  I had 3 interceptions and 70-plus tackles on defense last year."

Ashton attended a camp at Ohio State before flying to Penn State to attend the third and final session of Penn State's summer football camp.  He enjoyed the OSU camp and was apparently very impressive as Buckeye Head Coach Jim Tressel personally extended a scholarship offer after the camp.  He has several offers at this time and is hoping to earn an offer from the Nittany Lions following the Penn State camp.

"The ones (offers) I can remember are Oklahoma, LSU, Arizona, Colorado and I just got an offer from Ohio State last week."

Upon completion of the PSU camp on Sunday, Ashton will travel to Philadelphia to visit family.

"From Penn State, I'm headed to Philly for about a week and then I'm visiting an aunt in Virginia.  I have a lot of family in Philadelphia.  I lived there basically my whole life until I moved to Texas in 8th grade."

Ashton grew up a fan of both Michigan and Penn State.  He is very interested in playing in the Big 10 conference.

"I'm actually open to all the colleges.  As of now, I'm thinking Big 10.  My mom actually wants me to stay south, close to home.  If I don't go Big 10, I'm kind of thinking LSU or Oklahoma kind of, but I'm still open."

In additon to Ohio State and Penn State, Ashton visited both Texas A&M for a Nike Camp and Oklahoma for their spring game.

Coach Brian Norwood is recruiting Youboty for Penn State.
