UT Offers Auburn Commitment

Be sure to keep it locked on HornsDigest for all of your Longhorns recruiting needs!

There are some recruits, no matter what obstacles you might have to overcome, that you just go ahead and offer simply because they are just that good. 

Calvin Ashley is one of those prospects. 

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound OT has been committed to Auburn since May, 30 2015. But that did not stop the Longhorns from recently offering him. 

Ashley is rated as the No. 1 OT in Florida, the No. 1 OT in the South Region, the No. 3 OT in the country and the No. 12 prospect overall.

In addition to Auburn and UT, Ashley also has offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, USC and Virginia Tech.

Evaluation

Ashley is an offensive tackle who can be that left tackle and protect a quarterback's blindside on the next level. Athletic with a great frame. Has good feet and keeps his feet moving well when driving guys off the ball. Has very good reach at tackle. Solid agility and mobility for a guy his size. Has shown the ability to run the speed rush guys out and stone the bigger ones. Can really improve his pad level and his leverage. Relies more on his big body right now, so needs to work on his sets and playing lower. He has real potential and he loves to finish his blocks.
