Ashton Grable made his commitment to Jacksonville State today 1/25. The 6’4″ 290 lbs. offensive lineman chose the Gamecocks over Austin-Peay, Gardner-Webb, and Albany State.
Grable has been a 3-year starter at Wilkinson County. He jumped on our radar immediately after we scouted his older brother who stood 6’6″, so the upside was apparent with Grable from a frame perspective at a young age.
“It feels great to be done with my recruitment. It’s been a fun and stressful journey but it’s all worth it,” Grable said about the conclusion to his recruitment.
“I chose Jax State for a lot of reasons.” Grable continued, “The coaches, players, and the vibes I get every time I’m on campus. I also get a great education.”
Throughout his high school career, Grable made great strides, but it was his junior-to-senior jump that put Grable finally at the top of recruiting boards among FCS programs. Grable worked his tail off during the offseason last year with one of the top o-line trainers here in the state of Georgia, Kevin McAlmont, a former NFL lineman for the Tennessee Titans.
Grable earned Class A Public All-State honors on both our site and the AJC. He played in the reboot of the Georgia vs Florida Game back on January 18th, a game where Georgia won 26-10.
Grable shows good swing potential to play OG or OT at the next level. He made a really nice jump with his footwork in pass protection, and overall his progression arch is very encouraging as he enters his college career.
When asked about giving advice to future recruits Grable responded, “For future recruits just put God first and work hard. I can’t stress it enough. I came from a small county and made the best out of my situation. I wish you guys nothing but the best!”
Grable is once again proof that you can be discovered anywhere in the state of Georgia, and his improvements over the last year should continue to give hope to small-town athletes across the state of Georgia.
