Andrew Celis scouting report: Versatile receiver and safety recruit

Student Sports

Andrew Celis, a consensus three-star wide receiver in the 2014 class from Greenbrae (Calif.) Marin Catholic High School, has been flying under the radar on the recruiting trail. He holds scholarship offers from Nevada, Boise State, Washington State and Idaho, though he also has drawn some attention from the likes of Nebraska, Oregon, Cal, UCLA and Utah.

Celis the No. 134 athlete in the class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, which average the major services' evaluations. He is also a top-150 player in California and the No. 1,479 overall prospect in the country.

Scout regards him as a three-star recruit and the No. 128 wide receiver. ESPN has him in similar territory, placing him at No. 140 among receivers and at No. 92 among California prospects. Rivals does not include Celis in any of its rankings, but agrees he is a three-star talent.

Derrell Warren, West Coast Recruiting Analyst (@yssd): Celis is a slender, versatile athlete. He carries a slender frame (5'11" 171), and with a relatively narrow hip and shoulder base, he looks to most likely max out in the 185 pounds range.

Celis plays all over the field for his high school team. Lending his talents to both sides of the ball he is deployed primarily as a slot receiver, but on tape also get carries out of the backfield. Defensively, he operates at safety but also sees snaps at outside linebacker.

From a defensive pespective, Celis projects best to strong safety. Although he likely lacks the desired physical stature for a high FBS program, he would be a good pickup for a lower FBS or FCS looking for an in the-box-safety who can cover the deep half. He is an authorative tackler who generates great leverage on contact.

Celis is a smooth mover. He has a good accelaration as he gets up to top speed quickly. He doesn't used a ton of wasted lateral moves

As a receiver he displays good hands. He shows suddeness at the top of his routes, showing the ability to snaps out of his breaks.

On offense, slot-wide receiver would most likely be his best position at the next level. How shows the short area quickness to create separation in compressed areas. He likely doesn't translate to outside receiver as good based on his slight frame and he probably would not be able to consistently win with speed on the outside.
