Defensive Prospect Taking His Time

A highly-regarded high school senior football prospect discusses his favorite colleges.

Hernando, Miss.--Andre Wadley says he is finished with his recruiting visits, but is in no rush to make a decision on his college choice.

The 6-3, 254 defensive end from Hernando High School says he will make his choice from a short list of three colleges.

"I have narrowed it down to just Tennessee, Auburn and Mississippi State," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers.

Commenting on why each of those programs made his final cut, he says, "Tennessee is pretty cool. It is a pretty big campus, but not too big that you can't get to know a lot of people there. I liked my visit there.

"I really liked my visit to Auburn," says Wadley, who is rated a four star prospect by Scout.com. "Auburn is not too big and it isn't too small. It kind of reminds me of where I am from. I took my visit the weekend of the Auburn-Alabama game and I really liked it. I liked how everything is there–the players, the coaches and the fans.

"Mississippi State is a place I am very familiar with," says Wadley, whose brother plays for the Bulldogs. "It's just down the road from here, it is in the state and it is a place where I am known pretty well," he says. "I am definitely interested in State."

Wadley, who had defensive end and Mississippi native Quentin Groves as his player host on his official visit to Auburn in November, says he hasn't made a decision on when he is going to make his college choice. "I am still thinking about when I am going to do that," he says. "I may wait until signing day (Feb. 6th) on that."
