DL Richard Ash (6-4 270) of Pahokee, FL has been offered by Southern Cal. He really likes the Trojans. "There probably my favorite right now," said Ash.
Ash also has offers from USC, Florida, FSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee, South Florida and many others. He has 22 in all. Ash had favored the Gators but has cooled on them lately.
He says he would like to visit USC if "I can get away". However, he says he has not heard from the Gamecocks lately.
On the other hand, Ash is hearing from the Vols regularly. "I get mail from them almost every day," said Ash, "I've got a good relationship with the coaches."
He has visited Tennessee, Florida, and Florida International this summer and is visiting South Florida tomorrow. Ash has enjoyed his trips saying, "They all have really nice facilities."
Ash has not made a list of which schools he will visit on his officials but did say Southern Cal will be one of them.
