, 6-8 JR PF Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd, is one of the elite prospects in the country for 2012. Ashley has a great frame, with very long arms, and outstanding agility for a young big man. He can score in the paint with either hand and has good ball skills overall. Ashley plays a very complete game, as he's a good rebounder and defender. He is already being recruited by schools across the country.
"Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Washington, UCLA, Arizona, Kentucky, Kansas and Texas have offered," said Ashley. "I don't have a leader yet or even really a list."
I asked Ashley if he has a feel for which school has been recruiting him the hardest.
"Arizona has been on me the hardest," said Ashley.
Ashley did say that proximity to home won't be a factor.
"Not at all," said Ashley "I will play anywhere."
Ashley has yet to line up any visits. I asked him if he has a time frame for picking a school.
"Just sometime next year, "said Ashley. "I really don't know yet."
Ashley said he has a 3.1 GPA.
