Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks defensive end Robert Ash will continue the Elk Grove area's excellence at Boise State, thanks to his announcement this weekend.
"I am excited to announce that Robert has verbally accepted a scholarship offer to play football for the #2 team in the nation, Boise State University," said his coach Ryan Gomes.
Ash had offers from Cal Poly, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon State, San Diego State, Washington and Washington State, but ultimately decided on the Broncos.
"Coach Petersen and his staff feel they've gotten one of the best D-lineman on the West Coast and a young man that represents their core values of character and integrity," said Gomes.
As a 2009 junior, Ash had 53 tackles, 11 for loss, four sacks and three blocked kicks.
