Tommy Zbikowski (Notre Dame) put Buffalo Grove (Illinois) High School on the map in 2002 and the Bison have a talented junior linebacker that plans to take over where Zbikowski left off.
Eric Andino, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound, linebacker is starting to rack up the scholarship offers.
"Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Northwestern have all offered me a scholarship," Andino said.
"I'm hearing from a lot of schools right now. My favorites are Ohio State, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa."
Andino will be a three-year varsity starter in 2003 and he was named all-state as a junior after totaling 120 tackles and five interceptions.
Eric Andino participated in the junior combine at the All-American Bowl in San Antonio this past January.
