Godfrey Breaks Down Top Five

Announcing his top five on Sunday, Miramar (FL) High safety Andre Godfrey breaks down each of the schools with Fox Sports Next and talks about his decision timetable.

After a busy summer of college camps and seeing his scholarship total raise over 20, Miramar (FL) High safety Andre Godfrey knew that cutting his list to his final five schools would be a challenge.

"It was kind of difficult in the beginning, going through 20 some offers and having to research all of them," Godfrey told Fox Sports Next. "I research early playing time, what coaches they have, the alumni they've sent to the NFL, the facilities and everything else. It was a long process, but I've finally got it down to five schools that fit my needs.

Those five for the 6-0, 180-pound three-star Godfrey, in no order, are Louisville, North Carolina State, Syracuse, South Florida and Wisconsin.

Louisville: They are an up-and-coming program. They have a lot of Miami guys. I know some of the guys that are there and know a lot of people that play for them right now. The family environment at Louisville is a necessity to have.

N.C. State: I like Coach McNutt (cornerbacks coach) at N.C. State. I talk to him almost every day and we have a real good relationship. He has a lot of swagger as a coach that I can relate to. He said I could come right into the ACC and play.

Syracuse: Syracuse is another school where I could go in and play early. They had a lot of success last season and won their bowl game. They have alumni from my school that go to Syracuse right now as well, so the family environment there would be big.

South Florida: Being that it's the local school is always a plus. I'll be able to go to college and stay close to my immediate family. They also have guys that are leaving so I'll be able to get early playing time and learn from the seniors.

Wisconsin: Wisconsin is a great school. I like the fan base there. I feel a lot of love from Wisconsin. I could go in and play early at Wisconsin, so playing time there is a big plus being they are in the Big Ten and have had a lot of recent success.

Godfrey plans to visit all five schools on officials, taking two during his senior season and three after his season before making his final decision. He currently doesn't have any visits scheduled.

Finishing his junior season with 83 tackles, four interceptions and four fumble recoveries, Godfrey is hoping for a big senior season.

"I am working on everything to get ready for the season," said Godfrey. "You can never be too good at anything. I am working on my quickness, my reaction time and watching a lot of film from last year to learn from the mistakes I made and get better overall."
