Prediction and Early Impact:
With every one of the Cougars starting receivers coming back next season, all the backups that saw their time, and those who redshirted last season I don’t see Andre getting to see the field any time in his freshman year. Andre has the ability to play at receiver for the Cougars and produce smaller numbers towards the end of the season, but with the depth I see it hard for Coach Leach and staff to burn his redshirt late in the season if it is not needed.
Andre runs really good routes and is able to go up and get the ball at the high point and is also very agile. Andre’s first move off the line is spectacular and often beats his opponent. That combined with his excellent route running causes a lot of issues for the defense.
Andre is not the biggest or the fastest receiver but uses what he has to the best of his abilities. With that extra year in the weight room Andre will have the chance to bulk up which will also improve his yards after contact.
