A new offer for Darius Ashley

Cincinnati St. Xavier running back Darius Ashley received another scholarship offer Tuesday, and this one will lead directly to an unofficial visit to the school that gave him the full ride.

"Louisville offered me yesterday, actually," Ashley told Cardinalsports.com Wednesday night. "Coach (Steve) Kragthorpe texted me and told me, and then I called him. He told me about the offer then.

"I was definitely excited," he added. "I'm actually going down on Friday to visit the school and talk to the coaching staff. The last time I went down there I just went to a practice and watched."

What is he hoping to learn on the trip? "I've been to the school and I know I like the campus," he answered. "I just want to talk to the coaching staff and see how they plan to use me."

After receiving another scholarship offer from Stanford last week, Ashley said he now has more than 20 offers, including tenders from schools like Tennessee, Illinois, Cincinnati, Virginia, West Virginia, and Northwestern.
