Andre Seldon isn’t the oldest guy on the circuit right now and he certainly isn’t the biggest, but the 2020 Michigan cornerback is still managing to turn heads.

“I’ve got a big heart,” the Belleville High School standout said. “I’m not one of the bigger DBs, but I’ve got a big heart and I use my speed really, really well.”

The 5-foot-8, 145-pounder with 4.46-speed put that on display again at the Best of the Midwest Combine in Indianapolis last week.

“I did good,” Seldon said. “It was a great camp with a lot of older competition, a lot of 2018 kids. I did good. I held my own. It was a good camp overall.”

He appreciates every chance he gets to go against bigger, older players.

“It’s getting me better,” he said. “I go against older guys every day in practice. Everywhere I go, there are usually older guys. It’s just getting me better and getting me ready for the future.”

Seldon has an early offer from Kentucky, where he visited recently.

“It was big for me and my family,” he explained. “It got me a lot of looks early in the recruiting process and that’s still happening today.”

Prior to visiting Kentucky, Seldon was part of a group that stopped in South Bend to see Notre Dame on their way home from the Best of the Midwest Combine.

“We got there kind of late, so we couldn’t see everything,” said Seldon. “They want us to come back down for a visit to really get to see the whole campus. But I really liked what I saw. We got to see most of the facilities and I just really liked it.

“I talked to Coach (Del) Alexander, the wide receivers coach. He wants us to come back to get a better feel for Notre Dame.”

Seldon plans on doing just that.

“Yeah, I don’t really know when yet,” he said.

Notre Dame is a school that’s had his attention of late.

“I just really started to learn about Notre Dame because Kalon Gervin just committed and that’s one of my close friends,” said Seldon. “He’s been talking to me a lot lately about the academics of the school.”

Seldon said he wants to study Biology in college.

“So, I’m looking for schools that are strong in that field,” he added.

In addition to Notre Dame and Kentucky, Seldon has made recent stops at Indiana, Purdue and Bowling Green.
