Needville senior running back Ashton Stredick has announced that he has verbally committed to play football at Princeton next year, pending he qualifies for admission to the university.
Since Princeton is an Ivy League school, Stredick will have to go through the admissions process to be accepted by the university. Ivy League schools do not offer football-only scholarships.
Stredick, the 2018 Herald All-Area MVP, got an offer from Princeton in mid-July, coming after he received offers from Southern Miss, Army, Air Force and Incarnate Word.
In three games this season, Stredick has rushed for 399 yards and five touchdowns in 49 carries, good for 8.1 yards per carry. On Friday, he ran for 95 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Corpus Christi Calallen.
