What Will Andre Do?

Wide receiver <B>Andre Caldwell</B> is one of the most explosive players in the country. He had a great game last night in the All-American Bowl. Will QB Chris Leak make an impact in his ultimate decision? Or will he follow his friend (Mike Williams) and brother to the West Coast? Or will he stay in-state or play in Bayou? Caldwell discusses his options.

Five-star wide receiver Andre Caldwell has four more visits in January. The senior receiver prospect from Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson took an official visit to USC last month. This weekend, he will visit Florida (1-10). Then, he has trips to Miami (1-17), LSU (1-24) and Florida State (1-31). Then comes the decision.

"Right now, I plan on waiting until Signing Day," said Caldwell. "I am wide open. I am looking to get on the field early and I want to feel comfortable with the school I choose."

Caldwell just got back from the All-American Bowl in Texas. He had a great game, scoring on a long reception. As he made his way to the endzone, Caldwell tried to slam dunk the football over the crossbar but came up a little short. Instead, it was more like a lay up.

"I can usually dunk but I was a little tired from running so far. Actually, I was a little rusty because I played quarterback this season. But it was good to test myself against some of the best corners in the country."

His quarterback was Florida bound Chris Leak. Will Leak impact his decision? "It would be nice to play with Chris. He is going to be a great college quarterback and I would love to play with him. But I will do what's best for me."

Among the hot recruiting rumors is Caldwell leaning to the Trojans. His good friend, Mike Williams, was one of the best true freshmen (WR) this season and his older brother, Reche, is a rookie with the San Diego Chargers. So Andre, is this rumor true? "No. That is not true. Like I said, I am wide open."

Caldwell led his team to a state championship final as the quarterback of Jefferson. They lost to Melbourne (Fla.) Palm Bay.
