Title First, Then College

A Cincinnati linebacker that is focused on his upcoming state high school championship game plans to begin making recruiting visits in December.

Andre Revels, a big, powerful middle linebacker from Colerain High School in the Queen City is scheduled to face off against Division 1 power Canton McKinley for the Ohio state championship on Saturday.

"That's all I'm really thinking about right now," Revels told BlueGoldNews.com. "We're 14-0. I have been really concentrating on the game this week."

Revels' concentration hasn't been wandering too much throughout the season, as he has racked up more than 100 tackles to pace the Colerain defense from his middle linebacker spot. The six-foot, 235-pound linebacker has been a force all over the field, as he has also grabbed three interceptions and returning one for a 90-yard touchdown.

Revels' strength, however, is undoubtedly his size and, well, strength. Although his speed is a solid 4.7 in the forty-yard dash, he already has the size to play on the inside in college, so it's likely that wherever he goes, he will again serve as the anchor of the linebacking corps.

Revels admitted he has "done well" this year, which is something of an understatement considering the accomplishments both he and Colerain have racked up. However, he also said that he wants to put all of his energy into Saturday's title contest, which is a good indicator of where he puts team goals on his priority list.

Revels has a top four of Indiana, Pittsburgh, Minnesota and West Virginia, but said he does not have a favorite among that group. The Gophers have offered a scholarship, and he has set up an official visit to Indiana for December 10th, but any other plans will wait until after Saturday's championship showdown.
