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
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
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,
"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

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
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
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.
