Greater Atlanta Christian (Duluth, GA) RB prospect Micah Andrews has set two of his final three visits.
Having already visited Wake Forest on December 20, Andrews plans on taking three January visits before making a final decision.
“I’m going to UVa on the 17th and Vanderbilt on the 10th,” said Andrews, who earned Class AA first-team all-state honors. “I’m also going to visit Boston College after Virginia, and that’s going to be it.”
“My visit to Wake Forest was nice. Coach Grobe is a real nice guy.”
Andrews had favored Boston College before January, however now he seems to be a little more open.
“I’m pretty much wide open,” said Andrews. “I’m going to take all of my visits and then decide.”
Mike London serves as Virginia’s main recruiter for the talented back, and he is just one of the reasons Andrews has become so interested in the Cavs.
“He [London] is real down-to-earth,” said Andrews. “He’s real nice. I like Virginia’s philosophy of recruiting players – they recruit players and not necessarily positions, and whatever position you are the best at is where they put you. I think that makes a successful team. I like the direction they are headed. You can’t really go wrong with UVa.”
Andrews would like to play tailback in college. At 5-11, 190, he is a versatile back who can catch out of the backfield. His strength is his running ability, however, as he demonstrated during his senior season, running for 2,871 yards and 25 touchdowns. Andrews had 3,125 total yards.
His performance earned him Class AA State Player of the Year honors, an award he is very proud of.
“It feels great,” said Andrews of his honor. “Hopefully, though, it is just a stepping stone to something bigger and better.”
Andrews’ final collegiate decision will have just as much to do with academics as it will with football. He hopes to choose a school that will help him succeed in life after football.
“I want to go somewhere where I can write my own ticket with the degree I earn,” said Andrews.
At this point, Andrews appears wide open. He favors BC and UVa more than the other two IMO. BC led for a while and they will get the last visit, so they could be tough to beat.
