Andre Seldon lived up to expectations in his freshman year at New Mexico State

LAS CRUCES — According to 247Sports, Michigan defenseman Andre Seldon was the highest-ranking player out of high school to sign with New Mexico State.

Seldon assumed responsibility for nickel defensive back from the moment he stepped onto campus and has improved over the season in a position that is challenging in Nate Dreiling’s 4-2-5 defense.

“It’s quite a varied role here and I’ve gotten used to doing a lot of different things on defense,” said Seldon. “Depending on the game plan, I could be a blitzer, play man-to-man, be a post-safety, half-field safety, or be a nine-tech. I do everything on the field field. It’s pretty fun to be able to take on that role quite a bit in my freshman year.”
