WR/DB Adds Big Offer

Quinton Andrews hasn't been paying a whole lot of attention to the recruiting process lately. He's been too busy. "I just finished up with summer school and I've been working out with my teammates every day and also playing basketball for the school," Andrews said.

"I really haven't had a lot of time to keep up with all the recruiting stuff or visit different schools and stuff like that."

Andrews, a standout wide receiver/free safety at Monsignor Pace, needed to replace a bad grade in history class.

"I got it done," he said. "Everything is back on track. Now I just need to pass my SAT and everything will be straight."

Andrews, 5-11 and 194 pounds now, has been working hard this summer on improving his speed.

"My DB coach runs his own speed camp and I've been going to that a lot," he said. "I ran a 4.75 at a camp earlier this spring and I wasn't too happy. I wanna get down in the high 4.4 range. My coach says I have good football speed. I'm the kind of guy who runs better when I'm on the field. That's where I want to be fast."

Andrews, who qualified for districts in track this past spring after running a 23.04/200m and 11.12/100m, has been gaining lots of interest from college coaches.

"I do know that Florida has now offered me," he said. "I got about 10 or 11 scholarships now -- Rutgers, Iowa, West Virginia, Boston College, Florida, people like that. The coach from Georgia seems real interested in me. I'm just keeping my options open to see what happens."

UM, who contacted Andrews in the spring, is likely waiting to see how he does on the test scores.

"I was getting handwritten mail from them for awhile there but I haven't gotten anything from them lately," he said. "I guess I'll just have to show them what's up this season."
