5* Auburn OL Calvin Ashley Announces Transfer to FAU

Post

Iíd literally have more faith in a 2 star high school kid than these transfers. If the guy wasnít good enough to see the field then what does that say. It says he was overhyped. Itís been proven over and over again, McNeal, Franklin, Riles, that if theyíre not good enough to play at P5 theyíre not good enough to play G5. Itís just the way it is. This guy will never play a down and if he does will not be effective.†

I think it's important you separate JUCO from other transfers.

World beater or not Riles came here and started 10 games for us and plugged a hole, Taleni was great for us in 2017, Chris Robinson could be a great QB for us, and Durante was our best WR last year.

Who knows how Ashley will work out, but maybe him spending three years(two playing) he can take the next step.

Also the " if theyíre not good enough to play at P5 theyíre not good enough to play G5. Itís just the way it is.''

Is simply the most ridiculous statements I have ever read on this forum.

I said this last year and I stand by it, you donít want the P5 kids that werenít good enough. If you want them so badly (personally I have more faith in HS recruiting), then you need to find the kids that got kicked off the team for something stupid. Grad transfers like Taleni donít count Bc remember he was good enough at Tulane. He didnít leave for poor performance. Neither did Robison. However, guys like McNeal, Riles, and Durante did come here Bc they werenít good enough. And what did that bring us, Durante? Admittedly he was the only one of these guys that could actually play, but he had serious drop issues.†

I am all for high schools kids as well, but when you get a chance to take a 5 star guy who has no off the field issues, will have two years of eligibility who just wants a new start at a lower level of college football you take that 10/10 times.

Boy was I wrong  :Laughing:  But seriously, this is why we do whatever we can to move to the AAC. These kinds of kids we have to take chances on when if we were in a better conference not so much. It's ok. If he actually started for us I was fully expecting a 2018 RG performance out of him. Now we can actually have  Marquice Robinson, a redshirt freshmen, be the starter. I also noticed there's a Redshirt Junior Center on the team named Jake Jones. I wouldn't mind if he gets some serious playing time
