Former 5-star Auburn signee Calvin Ashley reportedly transferring again
Calvin Ashley left Auburn earlier this year. Now, the former Tiger is on the move again.
The offensive lineman has decided to leave Florida Atlantic and transfer to another school, according to 247sports.com’s Keith Niebuhr. Ashley joined the Owls in March, a month after he announced his decision to leave Auburn and enter the NCAA transfer portal.
Ashley was a 5-star recruit when he committed to Auburn in 2017, ranking as the No. 6 offensive tackle and the No. 26 overall recruit in the class per the 247sports composite rankings at the time. He redshirted his first year with the Tigers due to an eye injury, before playing five games, including one start at right tackle, in 2018.
However, after Ashley started Auburn’s game against Georgia last Nov. 10, he didn’t play in the Tigers’ final three games of the season due to what coach Gus Malzahn called a medical issue.
On Tuesday, Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin confirmed the report of Ashley’s decision to leave his program to 247sports, which is reporting that Florida A&M could be a school to watch as the lineman prepares to make his next move.
As a former top recruit, Ashley has the potential to be a standout offensive lineman for a program in the future. He grew up in Orlando, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him again go to a Florida school.
