Liberty-Eylau’s Andre Wiley Jr. Offered By Mississippi Valley State
Liberty-Eylau's key defender Andre Wiley Jr. picked up a new offer Saturday.
This one came from Mississippi Valley State, Network Athletics reported to ETSN.fm, and the Demons from the FCS subdivision have decided to compete against Wiley's FBS suitors in Arkansas State and Louisiana Tech. It had been about two weeks since the prospect received those first two offers.
Wiley (5-10, 170) spent his junior season at Liberty-Eylau serving as a linebacker and a safety. With first-class speed and a certain edginess, he helped the Leopards out to a surprisingly strong run in the 2014 Class 4A Division I playoffs.
Liberty-Eylau was edged by state runner-up Argyle in the regional championship game by three points. Argyle lost in double overtime to Navasota in the title game.
Mississippi Valley State, located in Itta Bena, Miss., participates in the Southwestern Athletic Conference against the likes of Prairie View A&M, Texas Southern and Grambling State.
Among its most notable football alumni are Jerry Rice and Deacon Jones.
The Demons went 2-9 last season under first-year head coach Rick Comegy, but there is reason for optimism in Itta Bena.
Comegy joined the program from conference rival Jackson State. He enjoyed a 55-35 record through eight season and won at least a share of the SWAC's East Division title in at least six of those seasons.
Wiley has plenty of time to make a college choice. He will become eligible to sign a National Letter of Intent on Feb. 3, 2016.
