Redman continued his success on the mound in college. At Iowa Central, Andrew compiled a 12-8 record over two years and was an all-conference selection both years. His ERA was 2.05 over those two years. At Clarke, Andrew set multiple records on the mound and was a first-team MCC pitcher his junior year. As a redshirt senior, He went 6-2 with a 1.68 ERA but his batting is what brought him to a national spotlight.

- MCC Player of the Year
- Gold Glove (Pitching)
- 2nd Team Academic All-American
- Honorable Mention All-American
Coach Spain on Redman: “Red not only brings in a vast knowledge on the mound, but also has proven himself as someone with an advanced understanding of hitting. As difficult as it is to do much more for this program, I anticipate he will be an even better coach as he has been as a player. He has had a major role in this program as a leader since the day he stepped on campus, which insures that his transition into a coaching role will be very natural for him.”
