Sandeman has the "It" factor

Recruiting Analysts and college coaches will break him down. Is he sudden? Is he explosive? How fast is he? Those are all questions that will be answered in time but one thing is certain: Colin Sandeman is a terrific football player and teammate who will make everyone around him better.

Colin Sandeman, the No. 1 class of 2006 prospect in the state of Iowa, recently worked out at the All-American combine in Iowa City, Iowa.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder from Bettendorf battled allergies throughout the day but he still had a solid showing. Sandeman has four scholarship offers and a college decision will most likely come during the summer.

"I'm still trying to get my camps in order," Sandeman said.

"I have scholarship offers from Kansas, Iowa, Iowa State and Wyoming. I'm going to wait and see what happens in May before naming a leader but I'll say that Iowa and Iowa State are my top two.

"I'd like to make a decision before the end of summer. I'd like to be able to get things over with so I can concentrate on my senior season.

"Purdue has shown a lot of interest lately and I think they could be offering soon. I'm planning on hitting a one day camp at Purdue for sure."

Sandeman has also expressed interest in programs such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.

Sandeman is an outstanding football player that had 810 yards receiving and 16 touchdowns as a junior. He has outstanding hand-eye coordination, deceptive speed and he is tremendous after the catch.

Sandeman also had an outstanding showing at the U.S. Army's National Combine that was held this past January in San Antonio. Colin went up against some of the top defensive back prospects in the nation and made great play after great play in the Alamo Dome.

We are now in the May evaluation period and college coaches are visiting Bettendorf on a daily basis. Look for Colin Sandeman to add a few offers to his resume this month. Will those offers be intriguing enough to overtake Iowa or Iowa State as co-leaders? Time will tell.
