It's a strong year for defensive tackle talent out West and Martin Andrus is easily among the top players in the region.
At the same stage, he reminds us a lot of Brandon Mebane, the long time Seattle Seahawk tackle and former Crenshaw and Cal lineman. Andrus is very quick off the ball, very powerful and has no problem getting in to the backfield, even when battling constant double teams.
On the recruiting front, LSU offered Andrus earlier this week and they're a definite player in his recruitment. While some feel it will be hard for the tackle to leave home, he plans to take all five of his official visits and he mentioned Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford and Washington, along with the Tigers as potential trips. The local schools, USC and UCLA figure to be in the mix as well.
