Cosumnes Oaks HS DE Robert Ash (Elk Grove, CA) became Boise State's fourth verbal commitment for the 2011 class last weekend. Ash and his teammates had just gotten home from the Boise State Football Camp and he felt the time was right to make his decision. What led to his commitment to Boise State? "I felt comfortable with the program and coaching staff," he said. "I thought about it afterwards and it seemed like a great time for me to commit," he added. Ash also held offers from Washington, Washington State, Nevada, Colorado, Cal Poly, Oregon State, and San Diego State.

Robert shared the D-line MVP Award with a future teammate. "Me and Jeff (Worthy) shared the D-line MVP Award," Ash said. "It's humbling and a great honor. Jeff is a cool cat too. He's laid back and a real hard worker."

The standout DE made his decision when he got home from the camp. He was focused on his team while at the camp in Boise, but knew the time was right when he got home. "I called Coach Petersen and then called Coach K," he stated. "They were fired up and ready to go. Coach K was excited and he's ready to coach me up."

Defensive Coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski feels that Robert is an excellent fit for the Bronco defense. Boise State's defense has steadily improved in every aspect under Head Coach Chris Petersen. That can all be attributed to work ethic and recruiting the right kids to fill the needs of the program. "Coach K likes how athletic I am and that I'm a smart player," he said. "I read plays extremely well and I have a good motor."

Ash (6'3, 245, 4.89) is now glad that he can turn his attention to his senior season. He's expected to be a leader this fall and it's safe to say he's taking it in stride. The future Bronco wants to lead by example. "I can now focus on the season with my team," he said. "I'm trying to improve everything before the season starts. I've got football practice, running in the morning, and I'm working on my bench. I'm going to try to double it," he added.
