Regarded as one of the best offensive lineman in the state of Louisiana, Ashton Duhe is showing his versatility this season. Through the first three games, Duhe (6'3, 305 pounds) was playing his normal position at offensive tackle. Last night, in a Destrehan 35-6 win over Ehret, the senior was forced moved to center due to injuries.
"I did pretty good for my first time. It was a lot different schemes and techniques. It's just a different job with different assignments. For learning everything in one week, I was pretty good," stated Duhe to PonyStampede.com on Saturday afternoon. "By being able to play any positing on the offensive line, I think colleges will like a little bit more. I have been playing tackle for the last couple of years, center last night, and guard my sophomore year."
With offers from everyone in Louisiana besides LSU, Duhe also has an offer from SMU and is getting interest from Georgia Tech, Tulsa, ULL, Auburn, Nebraska, Michigan, Southern Miss. Last night, the Mustangs showed how interested they were in the offensive lineman, when Coach Reinbold stopped by to see Duhe play.
"I like when schools come to the games, because it shows me they are legit and really interested in me. I think schools that come out are showing me that they have the most interest in me," said the 2010 prospect. "Coach Reinebold came out to the game. I saw him standing there watching me. I talked with him a couple days ago last week. He told me that he was going to come out to the game."
One of the non-committed players in the state of Louisiana, Duhe is looking to make some official vists later in the year.
"I don't have any favorites yet, but I probably will start to narrow it down soon. I need to get out to a couple games," said Duhe. "I'm thinking that I definitely want to go on an official visit to SMU. I want to check out one of their games and meet some of the guys. I also want to talk with some of the other coaches on the staff."
Currently he benches over 400 pounds and can squat 505. Destrehan has won the last two 5A state championships in Louisiana.
