Weatherby Favors the Tigers

Dandrick Weatherby, a 6'2", 175 lb. wide receiver out of Kosciusko, Miss., has received just one offer thus far, but says that it is likely all he needs as he feels pretty good about his chances at being an LSU Tiger following his senior year.

Dandrick Weatherby, a 6'2", 175 lb. wide receiver out of Kosciusko, Miss., has received just one offer thus far, but says that it is likely all he needs as he feels pretty good about his chances at being an LSU Tiger following his senior year.

 

"LSU is it," Weatherby said when asked his favorite schools. "I'm not ready to commit just yet but its looking like I'm going there."

 

In addition to the offer from the Tigers, Weatherby has been receiving mail from a host of schools including Mississippi State, Colorado, Miami, Alabama and Auburn among others.

 

While he has not had a chance to speak with any coaches yet, Weatherby says the two schools he receives contact from the most are LSU and Mississippi State, and that the Tigers plan on sending someone to check him out during spring training, which opened in Kosciusko last week.

 

"LSU is known for having great receivers," said Weatherby, who caught only 16 passes for 369 yards in a ground oriented attack but scored seven touchdowns. "They are a great team and are pretty well known. I want my name to be out there like [their receivers in the past.]"

 

Since the end of his junior year, where Weatherby earned a spot on the All-District team for the second time, he has been a part of the school basketball team, as well as doing the high jump for the track team.

 

In getting ready for his future in the sport of football, he says his main goal is to work on getting faster, currently claiming a time of 4.6 in the 40 yard dash.

 

There may be some faster receivers around the South but few match Weatherby's athleticism and that is what makes him so dangerous.

 

"I have a pretty good jump, and I'm good at going up and coming down with the ball," Weatherby said.

 

Weatherby summer plans are a little uncertain for now but when the Fall rolls around he does plan to visit the LSU campus as one of his official visits in hopes of getting to see the facilities first hand and getting to know the coaching staff better.
