After his official visit to Auburn this weekend, 5-star OT Calvin Ashely has effectively shut down his recruitment.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound tackle from Orlando was receiving a strong push from Maryland in the final weeks of the 2017 recruiting cycle. Ashley had also planned a visit to Florida at one point earlier this month, but canceled those plans.

Ashley headlines a Tigers class of 20 commits, including seven early enrollees, currently ranked No. 8 nationally and No. 4 in the SEC by the 247Sports Composite. The service ranks him the No. 27 overall recruit, the No. 6 offensive tackle and No. 1 Florida prospect.

Saturday Down South caught up with Ashley last month at the Under Armour All-American Game in Orlando when described committing to Auburn as the “best day in his life.”
