Rob Caldwell, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound, linebacker from Merrillville (IN) Andrean will be a four-year starter in 2002. Caldwell made 162 tackles as a junior including a game high 16 stops in the state championship game.

"I don't have an offer yet." Caldwell said. "I've been hearing from a lot of schools. "Ball State called me the other night. Notre Dame, Purdue, Nebraska, Indiana, Western Michigan and Central Michigan write hand-written letters.

"I don't know if I have a favorite right now. I want to listen to everyone that's interested in me. I'd say that Notre Dame, Purdue, Nebraska, Indiana and Ball State would be the five schools I like the most."

Caldwell played running back and linebacker for Andrean last year and he's being recruited as a linebacker. As a running back in 2001, Caldwell rushed for 700 yards and he had 300 receiving yards. He had a combined 17 rushing and receiving touchdowns.

"I've been to Notre Dame for a couple of spring games. I also went to the Western Michigan spring game. I don't know where I'm going to camp this summer yet." Caldwell said.

Rob Caldwell did participate was solid at the Michigan State Nike Camp last month.
