Lake Oswego, Ore., linebacker Andy Darkins (6-3, 230, 4.7) was considered one of the best prospects in the state of Oregon going into the season of 2002. Darkins lived up to his reputation and is enjoying an outstanding senior season.
Darkins is one of the main reasons he and his Lake Oswego teammates will take their 7-2 record into the second round of the playoffs this Friday Night.
One the season, Darkins has averaged 14 ½ tackles a game. He has 130 tackles, three sacks and three forced fumbles in nine games.
Darkins has offers from Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Portland State. This talented linebacker from Lake Oswego may also visit UCLA and Cal.
Stanford and Washington are the leaders for the services of Darkins. Stanford is a just a little bit ahead of Washington, but the Huskies are right there in the thick of it.
Oregon State, Stanford and Washington look to be in line for visits when Darkins sits down and sets trips.
“I will set up visits after the season,” Darkins said.
What is Darkins looking for in a school?
“Togetherness with the players and where I’ll fit in will be very important considerations,” Darkins said. “I am looking for a school where the coaches will have my interests at heart and where I will feel comfortable.”
