"Thomas is having a really good season," said McGuire, "He is playing the way you would expect a Texas commit to play."
McGuire continued, "Dominant. He has not really been tested this season with the exception of the South Grand Prairie game."
Baron Flenory, Scout.com's Midland Regional Scouting Manager, has seen Ashcraft several times this season, and said, "Ashcraft is everything you look for in a dominant left tackle; he is massive with an athletic frame and good feet. Once he latches on, he can run with a defender, shadowing their every move. It is hard to beat him with strength because he is too big and just as hard to work a move on him because he has great feet and can stay in front of a defender. On top of all that, he has a huge upside."
Ashcraft played guard as a sophomore on the 5A state championship team before moving outside as a junior and senior. Coach McGuire looks to his versatility as a major strength at the next level.
"His versatility is great. I think he could play all five offensive line positions, but I think he will play tackle for Texas," McGuire concluded.
As far when Ashcraft will officially become a Texas Longhorn, McGuire confirmed that Ashcraft has submitted all of his paperwork to be a mid-term enrollee and will enroll for the spring semester.
