Visits all set

Daniel Andrews emerged as a major college prospect from Trinity Christian in Jacksonville late in the season. He's got it down to three schools and he talked all about those schools and much more. Read on for the latest...

"I'm just trying to relax and enjoy this recruiting stuff," Daniel Andrews said. "It's a whole new experience."

Andrews, 6-feet and 195 pounds, finished his senior season with over 60 tackles and two interceptions. His impressive play at safety caught the attention of several college coaches. He's got it narrowed down to three.

"It's out of Miami, Florida, and Clemson," he said. "I have all three visits set. I'm going to Clemson on the 11th of January, then Florida on the 19th, and then Miami on the 26th. I don't plan on taking any other ones until then."

The talented safety prospect said there's a lot to like about each of those three schools.

"They're all good programs with good coaches," he said. "I just need to figure out which ones fits me best. Coach Drayton at Florida came to see me and Jamie (Harper) yesterday. We met with Coach Hurtt for a long time yesterday and I ate dinner (last night) with Coach Sweeney from Clemson. They're all on me good and it's exciting getting to know them."

Andrews, who said he expects the head coaches for those schools to visit him next month, will be taking those visits together with teammate Jamie Harper.

"The plan is to sign with the same school," he said. "I'm 100-percent sure that'll happen. We're on the same page. He's like a brother to me and we want to go to college together."

Harper has the same January visit schedule as Andrews. The visits will tell the story.

"I can sit here and listen to everything they have to say but that doesn't make things easier for me," he said. "I'm gonna have to experience the visits to be able to tell which one is best. That's why I can't say that I have a leader right now."

Inside the classroom, Andrews projects as a full qualifier with a 2.6 GPA, a 17 on the ACT, and an 870 on the SAT.
