Ashton Youboty (pronounce you-BOAT-y) is a tremendous cover cornerback blessed with impressive speed.  He has helped his team to a perfect record so far in 4 games.

Ashton recently took his first official visit, which was to Penn State during the weekend of the Nebraska game.

"It was fun," Ashton said.  "It was pretty cool.  I travelled around with the team.  They pretty much showed me most of the college."

Calvin Lowry was Ashton's host.  Youboty, who took the visit by himself, graded the visit an "8 to 9" on a scale of 1 to 10.

What did he think of the game against Nebraska?

"It was exciting.  It was a lot more exciting than a high school game."

He has not attended any other college games this year.

Ashton also got the chance to meet with several members of the Penn State coaching staff.

"I met with Coach Norwood, Joe and the defensive coordinator."

The meeting with Joe Paterno was a one-on-one meeting.

"He talked about the defensive package and their need for corners."

Youboty lists Penn State in his top 5.

"It's still Penn State, Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee and Oklahoma."

Ashton plans to visit his other favorites, but does not yet have any other visits scheduled.

Is he any closer to deciding whether to play in the north or south?

"I'll know all that after I take my trips.  I'm just waiting to visit the colleges and then I can make a decision."
