Checking in from Elysian Fields (Texas) at 6-foot-5, 312-pounds, 2019 offensive tackle prospect Jade Ashalintubbi is hard to miss. He holds early interest from Baylor Bears, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies to name a few. Ashalintubbi will have dozens of offers over the next two years.
“I arrived at 10, and my two offensive line coaches came with me as well as my teammate Malik Johnson,” Jade Ashalintubbi said. “The first thing we did was get signed in, and Coach Warehime came and said hello. I got to speak with Coach Warehime and Coach Haverty and briefly got to speak to Coach Herman. The message was that they plan to reform the whole Texas program and have the family mentality and to me, that is what I want in a team that I would possibly play for. And after my visit, Texas is in my top 3.”
2016: Ashalintubbi had a strong sophomore season as he earned his district's Lineman of the Year award for Elysian Fields High School at the Texas Class 3A level. He was first-team all-East Texas according to multiple outlets.
