When Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw head coach Robert Garrett says he has a D-I player you can take it to the bank. He is one of those coaches who prides himself by not over selling players, but telling the truth so when he says his cornerback/safety/ wide receiver Marcus Andrews (6-2, 185, 4.5) is a D-I guy, like when E.F. Hutton says something, you listen.
There have been several colleges who came by the Crenshaw campus this spring and it appears that Andrews could be closing in on his first offer.
"I had Arizona State, Washington and UNLV come up to the school to see me," Andrews said. "I think that Washington and UNLV are close to offering me.
"They are waiting for their DB coaches to see my highlight video," Andrews said. "They have seen me work out and they were impressed with my feet. They told coach (Garrett) that I am a D-I talent. After UNLV saw me workout they asked for my highlight tape and transcripts."
As far as camps go Andrews will more than likely attend UCLA's one day camp on June 7th. At this point, Andrews doesn't have any other camp plans.
"Marcus is very good in man coverage, is very aggressive and is a force in run support," Garrett said. "He has good leaping ability and is very athletic. He's definitely D-I."
The scouting report on Andrews is he has the versatility to play several positions. He's long and lean, plus he has outstanding ball skills. He also has quick feet and excellent footwork. He loves to jam a receiver at the line and get in the opponent's head.
Andrews earned first-team all-league as a junior after racking up over 30 tackles, four pass deflections, two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and fumble recovery.
