Tommy's Teammate Likes Irish

Buffalo Grove, Illinois linebacker Eric Andino could follow former teammate Tommy Zbikowski to South Bend.

Tommy Zbikowski (Notre Dame) put Buffalo Grove (Illinois) High School on the map in 2002 and the Bison have a talented junior linebacker that plans to take over where Zbikowski left off.

Eric Andino, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound, linebacker is starting to rack up the scholarship offers.

"Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Northwestern have all offered me a scholarship," Andino said.

"I'm hearing from a lot of schools right now. My favorites are Ohio State, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa."

Andino will be a three-year varsity starter in 2003 and he was named all-state as a junior after totaling 120 tackles and five interceptions.

Eric Andino participated in the junior combine at the All-American Bowl in San Antonio this past January.
