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.
