Tandy in no rush

While still waiting on some bigger offers, Christian County's (KY.) Marcoreyon Tandy has already gotten attention from several high major programs.

While still waiting on some bigger offers, Christian County's (KY.) Marcoreyon Tandy has already gotten attention from several high major programs.

Kentucky boasts one of the state's best classes in many years and one of the main reasons is the number of great athletes available. One of the better athletes in the state is Marcoreyon "Bubba" Tandy. Currently nearby Western Kentucky is Tandy's only offer, but several schools like the 6-foot receiver.

"Western (Kentucky) just offered me the other day," said Tandy. "I get letters from Kentucky, Cincinnati, Louisville, Navy, Army, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Tennessee."

Both Kentucky and Louisville are showing Tandy a little interest right now as well. "They send me a lot of stuff. It's letters and stuff to let me know what's going on," he said.

Bubba hasn't had a chance to take many visits this spring, but he did attend the Hilltopper's spring game. Tandy feels somewhat comfortable with Western Kentucky, but is looking for a change. "It's a pretty good environment. It's really like home. But that's what I want to get away from," he continued.

After he takes additional visits and gets to work out for coaches, Tandy will likely receive additional offers. "I can do whatever the coach wants me to do," said Tandy. "If they want me to throw, I'll do that. I am known for catching the ball and making plays afterwards," he said. "Right now I'm trying to get better at breaking tackles and making more plays after the catch," he continued.

Tandy has been a productive player for the Colonels the last couple of seasons producing 925 yards receiving and 294 yards rushing. But as a team, the Colonels began to take off when Tandy changed positions.

"This season I had a pretty good year. I think we did pretty good once they put me at quarterback," he said. It didn't end great though, because we didn't make it to state," he said.

Tandy isn't in any hurry to make his college decision. "I'm going to wait and decide during the year," he said. "I won't do it too early because I want to see what happens," he said. "I'll make the decision at the right time," Tandy continued.
