We study the spectral eigenvalue statistics of tight-binding random matrix ensembles in the presence of Andreev scattering (AS). The nearest-level spacing distribution function is shown to follow a distribution PAS(s) which is distinct from the three well known Wigner-Dyson classes describing disordered "normal" conductors. Numerical results for PAS(s) are obtained for a three-dimensional random tight-binding Hamiltonian and also for a two-dimensional transmission matrix, both including Andreev scattering. The PAS(s) distribution is also analytically reproduced and is shown to coincide with that obtained by folding a GOE metallic spectrum around E=0.
