Enjoying Spring Break

This week, Bettendorf High School is closed due to spring break. One of the top prospects in the state of Iowa in 2006, Colin Sandeman has used this week exactly what it was meant for.

This week, Bettendorf High School is closed due to spring break.

One of the top prospects in the state of Iowa in 2006, Colin Sandeman has used this week exactly what it was meant for.

"I'm in St. Petersburg, Florida right now for spring break," Sandeman said.

You could gain a pretty good guess just how estastic he sounded when he made that statement.

Another reason Sandeman likely sounded estastic is due to the fact he already holds scholarship offers from the Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones.

"When I get back from the trip, I'm going to line up spring visits to Wisconsin and Michigan. I have spoke to Coach (Dave) Doeren from Wisconsin on the phone, and he told me he had the chance to view my highlight film and was real excited. Michigan has only spoke with my coaches, so far, but they have sent me a lot of mail."

"I just received a text message from Coach (Brandon) Blaney at Kansas, today, asking me to give him a call, too."

"Coach (Pete) Carroll's son from USC called my coach requesting film, and invited me to come out to attend their camp this summer."

"I still receive a lot of mail from schools like North Carolina and Boston College."

Still, while Sandeman insists he is wide open and will consider any options, he'll have plenty of temptation to remain in-state.

"I'm making an unofficial visit to Iowa State on March 25th to watch one of their spring practices. I get along with their coaches real well. One of my former teammates, Euseph Messiah, plays wide receiver there, and has had nothing but great things to say about Coach (Mike) Grant."

"I was suppose to attend Iowa's Elite Junior Day on March 4th, but I had my own basketball game. Iowa has a great tradition, and I really like Coach (Kirk) Ferentz and Coach (Lester) Erb. I believe that Iowa has a really bright future," Sandeman concluded.

Expect Sandeman to make his decision before the start of his senior season.

Sandeman will be one to watch at the Scout.com All-American Combine in Iowa City, Iowa on April 22nd.
