"I'm solid with USC right now because they've put in a lot of effort in recruiting me," says Ausberry. "I think that the players and the coaches there are really cool.
"They've also got a good academic system in place over there as well. I also like how they've got a nice even mix of running and passing the ball. It seems that the receivers on the team have no problem getting the ball.
"I went to their JR Day last weekend (4/3) and I had a great time. I saw the player's practice and I took a tour of the campus. I got to meet the players and the coaches…everybody I talked with was nice and we all had fun. The highlight of the experience for me was being at the practice--the player's have so much intensity and I really like that.
"I like Ohio State as my #2 school right now," he says. "I grew up watching them but I've never been there. I don't know much about the program other than I've liked them since I was little.
"I like Cal as my #3 school. I've seen some of their games on television and they seem to use their receivers well. I've never been there either though and I really don't know that much about them.
He also claims offers from Mississippi and Washington State.
"This summer I plan on taking a camp in at USC and Ohio State. I also would like to get over to Cal's JR Day in the next couple weeks.
"I want to take all of my official visits and make my decision towards the end of the season.
"I've got good size, strength and speed at my position. I've also got a great ability to jump over defenders. I just want to get faster overall for this season and work on my strength too."
