Alabama QB recruit: Clemson’s coaches ‘are like no other’

Rising sophomore prospect Robby Ashford figures to be one of Alabama’s top quarterback recruits before his process is all said and done.

The class of 2020 signal-caller from Hoover, Ala., has yet to start a game on varsity but already landed offers from Georgia, Illinois, Missouri and Jacksonville State.

Ashford (6-3, 200) visited Clemson to compete at the Dabo Swinney Camp this week and showed off the arm strength, accuracy and athleticism that have put him on the map of college football programs.

“They told me that they loved everything they saw, my arm strength and how I look in my frame, and that they’re going to be recruiting me for sure,” Ashford said of the feedback he got from Clemson coaches. “They don’t offer quarterbacks early, so they’re taking it slow, and they also wasn’t me to come down and visit during the season.”

Ashford feels Clemson’s coaches are unique and was more than satisfied with the level of coaching he received from them during the Swinney Camp.

“I enjoyed it a lot. The coaches are like no other,” he said. “They teach you a lot, and the competition was great. Also the facility is amazing. I was so impressed with it.”

Ashford has also camped at Georgia and South Carolina this summer, while he is attracting attention from other schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky and North Carolina.

He hopes to continue to impress Clemson moving forward.

“The atmosphere is amazing,” Ashford said. “I’ve always loved the school and I could definitely see myself playing here.”
