Woodberry Forest's Christian Asher Signs with UNC-Charlotte

Posted: Updated:

Woodberry Forest wide receiver Christian Asher has committed to UNC-Charlotte

He led the Tigers with 394 yards receiving this past season on 25 catches.  He scored 4 touchdowns.

Asher said, "You put in so much work everyday for so many years and you always want to do your best. It's a lot of pressure and all the time but to really see it pay off today, it just feels really good."

The 6-foot-1 212 lb senior was also offered a scholarship to University Massachusetts and was looking at North Carolina State and Wake Forest.

UNC-Charlotte will transition to conference USA next year.

Asher will be making a switch from offense to defense as he will be playing strong safety or outside linebacker for the 49ers.

"It's interesting," said Asher. "It'll be different but I've always had kind of a mean streak in me so I'm excited to see what it's like to be on that side of the ball."
