One of the imposing forces in Colorado high school football over the past three season, Ashton Torre of Cherokee Trail High School, is reporting he will play his football at the University of Montana. Torres, a 6-4 300 pound offensive lineman, has, throughout his career, succeeded using his size and strength to rough up defenders.
The decision, according to Torres, came down to Montana and Idaho. Beyond his two finalist, Torres gained interest from multiple FCS and mid-major programs. Regarding his decision to go with the Griz Torres says, “It felt like home when I went up there, I really feel like I can do great things up there.”
Montana is sitting at 4-3 this season and averaging 28 points a game in Head Coach Bob Stitt’s offense. Talking about playing for Stitt, Torres says, “It should be very exciting. His offense is very up tempo and exciting I look forward to learning it.” Talking about the transition to college ball Torres adds, “I definitely need to get faster. I'm also really going to focus on getting stronger overall.”
Stitt, who previously coached at Colorado School of Mines, knows Colorado talent and will continue to add to his roster from the Centennial state over the next two talented recruiting classes.
