Duluth OL Talks Recruiting

Duluth High two-star offensive lineman Andrew Higgins has added three new offers to his list, and he's still being heavily pursued by some of the Nation's top schools. As of now, Ball State, Navy, Tulane, Furman, and UAB have offered the 6-foot-2, 275 pounder from Duluth, Georgia.

GAVSV.Com talked to Higgins about his latest visits.

This year, unofficially, I went to Tulane and UAB," said Andrew Higgins.

"I went down to Tulane to watch them play Rice and they kinda beat them up pretty bad. I'm actually from New Orleans. I liked being down there again. I really like the way their offensive line plays. I love their coaching staff. I talked to Coach (Don) Mahoney, the offensive line coach for awhile. I also talked to Tulane head coach (Chris) Scelfo. I really like their coaches."

What did Higgins think about his trip to Birmingham, Alabama.

"My UAB visit went really well," he said. "We got down there to watch them play Marshall. I got to meet with all of their coaches. I got to see them for the first time in person. Coach (George) Pugh is the one that's recruiting me for UAB. When I talked to him, he had a lot of good things to say. I like the way they played, but unfortunately, they lost. I still really enjoyed my visit there."

Higgins hasn't lined up any official visits at this point, but he will travel to Philadelphia for the Army-Navy Game. After that, he's kind of up in the air.

"I haven't set up any official visits yet," said Higgins. "I plan on doing that after the season is over. My last game is November 10th, so after that I'll probably start setting them up. I'm planning to take all five of my official visits."

"I know I'm gonna take at least one more unofficial this year. I know I'm going to the Army-Navy game. I might go to Southern Miss and I might go to Middle Tennessee, but I know I'm definitely going to see Army and Navy play in Philadelphia on Dec. 2nd."

With five offers in his pocket, Higgins still wants to keep his options open.

"I really don't have any favorites," Higgins said. "I want to keep all of my options open. I'm just gonna wait it out, see what I've got, and make a decision then."

Higgins isn't to a point where he's comfortable naming a leader, but he is high on each of the schools that have extended an offer. He is hearing from several top schools, and he may not have to wait much longer for offer number six.

"I'm hearing the most from Princeton, Stanford, East Carolina, Troy, South Carolina, Northwestern, Southern Miss and Middle Tennessee," said Higgins.

He's in excellent academic standing with a current GPA of 3.75 and a 1600 on the SAT.
