Andrews Working on Unofficial Visits

Although he hasn't seen an increase to his scholarship offer count since March, Pierre Andrews has seen an increase in interest from various schools lately.

"Recruiting is about the same right now," said Andrews. "I still have LSU as a scholarship right now – that's the only school that has offered right now.

"I talked to Clemson last week – talk to Coach [Marion] Hobby, which is my recruiting coach. I'm trying to make a trip down there for a scrimmage or a game. I called Boston College last week also, but I didn't get to talk to them. Coach [Dan] Brooks of Tennessee sent me a letter saying I need to get down there."

Andrews, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound offensive lineman from Charlotte (N.C.) Independence, is planning a fairly busy fall that will include unofficial visits to Clemson, Tennessee, and Virginia, but a trip to Baton Rouge will be the most important of his visits.

"Me and my dad are planning right now to get to LSU," said Andrews. "That's the really big plan the LSU trip right now. I've never been there before."

Andrew's summer was also rather hectic; he camped at South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

With so much uncertainty and a big senior season forthcoming, Andrews has decided to keep his options open.

"Right now I'm just trying to keep an open mind, that's all," said Andrews. "I'm just really trying to keep an open mind and trying to also worry about things I have to take care of here at school this year."

Independence High School won their 78th consecutive game Friday against rival West Charlotte – the nation's longest current winning streak. The two-time All-State selection helped block for 220 yards and two touchdowns and let up no sacks in the season opening victory.
