It is never too early to build for the future. Auburn is doing just that as they have received a commitment from 2017 five-star offensive tackle Calvin Ashley.
Auburn’s future is looking rather bright as the Ashley commitment came a few hours after Auburn landed 4-star wide receiver Eli Stove.
Ashley stands a monstrous 6-foot-7 and tips the scales at 280-pounds.
Currently ranked as the second best offensive tackle in the nation (behind Ohio State commit Josh Myers), Ashley will help sure up the all-important offensive line for SEC play.
Although the Tigers will have to wait two years before they can see Ashley suit up in Auburn colors, things come a bit easier with a five-star OT under your belt. Watch for higher-end running backs or quarterbacks to look into the Tigers as the future of that line is looking very strong.
