- Brooke Berringer Citizenship Team Honorable Mention (2012)
Junior Nick Ash will enter the 2012 season looking to make a push for playing time in one of the Huskers’ deepest position groups. The 6-5, 285-pound Ash has continued to make progress in the weight room and has the ability to play multiple positions. The Texas native has seen practice time at both guard and tackle, but could also see work as a center in 2012.
A finance major, Ash is on track to graduate in December of 2012, completing his undergaduate work in just 3 1/2 years.
Ash provided depth on the offensive line, but did not play in a game.
2010 (Redshirt Freshman)
Ash provided depth on a veteran offensive line, but did not see game action.
Ash sat out his first season in the program as a redshirt and worked with the scout team.
Before Nebraska (Keller HS)
Ash was one of four scholarship signees on the offensive line in Nebraska's 2009 class. He was a first-team all-district pick for Coach Kevin Atkinson and Class 5A Keller High School in 2008, while also earning second-team all-area honors from the Dallas Morning News. Ash helped his team to a 7-3 record in 2008, and the Indians narrowly missed out on a state playoff appearance. Ash helped a Keller offense that averaged nearly 30 points per game and he allowed just one sack on the season.
Ash played tackle during his senior season, switching from offensive guard as a junior, when he was an honorable-mention all-district pick. Ash was regarded as one of the top 100 prospects in Texas in the 2009 class. In addition to his on-field accolades, Ash was also an honorable-mention academic all-state pick by the Texas High School Coaches Association. He selected Nebraska over Kansas, Purdue, Texas Tech, Arizona, Vanderbilt and TCU to name a few, but only visited Nebraska.
Nick is the son of Kent and LeAnn Ash, and was born on Oct. 29, 1990. Majored in finance and earned his bachelor's degree from Nebraska in December of 2012. He volunteered his time at various hospital and local school visits, Boo at the Zoo and a Special Needs basketball tournament. Ash was an honorable-mention Brook Berringer Citizenship Team selection in 2012.
