RB Andre Callender

Seton Hall Prep
West Orange, NJ
Andre Callender is a new name that has emerged for the Clemson Tigers at running back for the 2003 class. Callender plays for Seton Hall Prep up in New Jersey, and even though his team has gotten off to a slow start this season, he's still been putting up solid numbers.
"Things have been pretty slow so far," said Callender in an interview with CUTigers.com Wednesday evening. "We are 3-3 right now, but I have rushed for 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns."
Callender rushed for a very impressive 1,772 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior, and with those numbers, plenty of schools have already moved in with offers.
"Michigan State and Boston College are probably recruiting me the hardest right now, but I've also got offers from Penn State, Clemson, North Carolina, and Purdue to along with those other two," said Callender.
In terms of a top 5, Callender has maintained for the last few weeks that Clemson, Penn State, Boston College, North Carolina, and Michigan State round out his top schools, and nothing has affected that list up to this point in the recruiting process.
The Tigers would obviously love to sign a big name running back this season, and Callender certainly fits the bill as a back with speed to burn and incredible elusiveness. He is currently ranked as one of the top 30 running backs in the country by TheInsiders.com.
Callender has received steady interest from the Tigers, but he hasn't become overwhelmed with the recruiting process just yet.
"I wouldn't say I hear from Clemson too often, but I do get letters pretty regularly. I think most of them are from Coach Lovett," said Callender.
Callendar also maintains that he'll set all of his official visits after the season. "I'd like to visit all the schools in my top 5, and I'm not going to make a decision until after I take all of my visits," added the senior running back.
We will continue to keep you updated on Andre Callender throughout the rest of the recruiting process, but as it stands now, the Tigers appear to be one of the five schools he'll likely visit.
