Rector taking visits

6-foot-1 Father Ryan (Tenn.) athlete is one of several emerging targets from WKU's Junior Day.

Father Ryan (Tenn.) athlete Andrew Rector is staying busy on the recruiting trail, including recent trips to see Duke and North Carolina.

But the Hilltoppers left him with an equally strong impression.

"Duke and UNC are just really nice schools," Rector said. "They have a lot of money.

"But to compare them I would say WKU was right there with them. The facilities are both super nice. Loved all three schools a lot."

The 6-foot-1, 185 pound standout was also invited to Iowa State and Illinois State for spring football activities.

At WKU's Junior Day, Rector got to meet his recruiting coach, JaMarcus Shephard, among others.

"It (Junior Day) was great," he said. "Had a ton of fun.

"Coaches loved me, they were great, treated me well. I've seen their facilities before but they always amaze me at how nice they are."

Scheduled in the next few months for Rector is 7-on-7 football and camping at various schools.

"I have not narrowed down a certain school," he said. "But I'm pretty sure I wanna major in sports management."
