Until then, Cord Sandberg, a Manatee High School [Bradenton, Fla.] junior, is waiting to see what happens.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound quarterback has received offers from Clemson, Auburn, Iowa State, Cincinnati and Western Kentucky.

"I'm going to play my junior year out and see what happens then," he recently told CUTigers.com. "Whoever shows the interest, whoever I talk to and feel comfortable with. After this college football season, it's going to be really exciting to watch and see which coaches go to certain places.

"After the college season, I want to see where some coaches are at and possibly make a decision before my senior year next year."

Sandberg added that he won't put much focus on recruiting until his junior season comes to a close.

His season started with a 20-14 win over American Heritage last Wednesday. American Heritage cancelled class on Friday because of Hurricane Irene, so the game was moved up two days.

Sandberg completed 7 of 9 passes for 171 yards in the second half. He rushed for a total of 45 yards and a touchdown on the night.

This week, Manatee will travel to Maryland for a matchup with Our Lady Good Counsel.

Sandberg won't be making an unofficial visit on Saturday. In fact, he won't be take many this fall.

When asked about his plans for game day visits, Sandberg mentioned one to Auburn.

"They wanted me to come up and see a game, possibly on my bye week," he said. "I'm not sure if they have a game on my bye week. I was thinking maybe going somewhere during my bye week for a game, possibly Auburn or whoever has a home game that I talk to. I think it'll be an Auburn game on my bye week."

Those Tigers are showing the most interest.

"Other than that, Clemson. I've been in contact with them more out of any other school, besides Auburn," he said.

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris and running backs coach Tony Elliott have both pitched into the recruiting effort for Sandberg.

As a sophomore, Sandberg threw for 2,855 yards and 25 touchdowns and rushed for 600 yards.
