2014 Outlook: Smart, savvy defensive back who is looking to build off his breakout freshman season in 2013. Possesses good instincts for the ball and is versatile in the secondary with his experience at both corner and safety. Looking to solidify a starting spot at safety after becoming the first true freshman in FSU history to lead the team outright in interceptions last year. Already has big-game experience having played large roles in FSU’s ACC Championship game and BCS National Championship game in 2013.

2013: Outstanding season for the true freshman from Fairhope, Ala....saw significant action in all 14 games with one start as a safety and cornerback in Florida State’s top-rated pass defense (156.6 ypg)...led the Seminoles with four interceptions and was second on the team with 91 interception return yards...his four INTs were tied for fifth-most in the ACC...forced three fumbles to tie Lamarcus Joyner for the team lead…ranked second on the Seminoles in passes defended (eight) and had four pass break-ups…one of only three true freshmen to register a sack for FSU in 2013...had a career day at Wake Forest with two interceptions (one returned 56 yards for a touchdown), a forced fumble and one tackle in his first career start…started at free safety in place of Terrence Brooks…made his first career interception late in the fourth quarter to help seal a 48-34 victory over Boston College...registered one tackle and intercepted a pass against Miami...set a new career high with six tackles and added a pass breakup against Syracuse...had three tackles, forced a fumble and recovered it at Florida...had another big performance in the ACC Championship win over Duke as he was second on the team with five tackles, had one of FSU’s two sacks (his first of the year), forced his third fumble of the season and added another pass break-up…made four stops in the BCS National Championship Game…vital cog in FSU defense that led the nation in scoring defense (12.1 ppg) and interceptions (26) and ranked third in total defense (281.4 ypg)…also was a top special teams performer, starting on the punt coverage, kickoff coverage, punt return and kickoff return units…tied for second on the team with 10 special teams stops…captured All-ACC Third Team honors in addition to several Freshman All-America honors…named to the All-ACC Academic Team.

PERSONAL: Versatile athlete who played receiver as a sophomore and junior and quarterback as a senior in high school; also played in the defensive backfield where some schools were projecting him to play...as a junior in 2011 had 876 receiving yards and 17 touchdown receptions...held 3-star rankings from ESPN, Rivals, 247Sports and Scout sites...FSU was the first school to extend Andrews an offer...he committed to the Seminoles in late January...competed in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Game...originally committed to Minnesota, which intended to play Andrews in the secondary...chose Florida State from a list of scholarship offers that included Alabama, Louisville, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among others.
