Andrew Tindall, a 5-11, 190 pound RB out of Cedar Falls High School has seen a jump in recruiting attention recently, as he's healed from an early-summer battle with mono.
"I got stronger because of it," he said. "I leaned out a little bit, but then I started working out really hard, I hit the weights really hard."
At the Scout.com Kansas City Combine, Tindall posted the second-fastest three-cone drill time of 7.03 seconds, but re-aggravated a quad injury on a second attempt. He pushed through for the other drills, putting up a disappointing 4.81 time in the 40-yard dash.
One look at Tindall's film, however, shows he's capable of much more on the field. During summer conditioning, he ran an outdoor hand-timed 4.52, while also being professional timed by Velocity Sports Performance at 4.48.
Kansas and Iowa State have taken notice, requesting more film on Tindall, and are planning to attend some of his high school games this fall to evaluate him further.
Tindall said he will play primarily running back this fall, but will also see time at safety. He said he's willing to play wherever the team – high school or college – wants him to.
In his junior year, Tindall racked up 1441 yards on 271 carries and 20 touchdowns, losing only one. He earned second-team All-Conference RB, and was named to first-team All-Metro in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area.
