Offensively, Ashcraft rushed for about 1,100 yards on 9.2 yards a carry and scored 22 touchdowns as a junior. His junior performance has college coaches drooling to get this Tarheel State running back onto their campus.
"He's getting a lot of interest from the larger schools," Coach Cloninger said. "The in-state schools are very aware of him, several of the ACC schools have inquired as well as the Big 10, Big 12, and Big East."
Ashcraft, who plans to major in electrical engineering, currently has two early offers, Clemson and North Carolina.
Fortunately, Ashcarft isn't caught up in the process right now, he just wants to play the game. "He loves the game and just wants to play," Coach Cloninger said. "And he'll be a good one at the next level, I can promise you that. He's got the frame and quickness to play strong safety and outside linebacker and even free safety too. He'll have some big opportunities."
