Ah Ching, who is just 15, earned his offer after impressing at the All-Poly Camp in Bountiful, Utah. Word is that other schools like USF, UCLA and possibly South Carolina might not be too far off from offering either. Ah Ching was named his team's freshman impact player of year in 2008 and also qualified for state wrestling as a freshman after never participating in the sport before.
What impressed coaches the most at the All-Poly Camp was Ah Ching's athletic ability. He's 6-0 and 205 pounds, and he has been clocked at 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash, has a 300-pound bench-press max and a 500-pound squat max.
"It's a big honor to be recognized this early," Ah Ching said. "It's something I'm going to use as a motivator. I don't want to get a big head and let it be my focus. My focus is still on being the best player I can. I'm real aggressive, and I love to hit. I'm a true middle linebacker."
