Rudolph names Florida his leader

West Palm Beach (Fla.) Cardinal Newman receiver Travis Rudolph had been committed to Miami for close to a year, until Friday.

“I decommitted from Miami yesterday,” Rudolph said. “I decommitted because I have trust issues with their coaches and the inconsistency in what they have been telling me during the time they were recruiting me and while I was committed.”

While the 6-foot, 170-pound Rudolph just decommitted from Miami, he now claims a new leader from another instate program.

“Florida is my new leader,” Rudolph said. “I really like everything at Florida and everything is on a consistent base with Florida. I really like their program and their coaching staff and the relationship I have with their coaches.”

Rudolph actually visited the Gators for Junior day in February and according to Rudolph, the visit went very well for him.

“It was a really good visit, that’s also when they offered me,” Rudolph said. “I really liked the facilities and the campus at Florida. The coaches also treated me great and showed me around. I got to sit down and watch film with coach (Joker) Phillips and he showed me how they would use me at receiver.”

Right now Rudolph doesn’t have any visits set but he does plan to visit Florida sometime this spring to watch a practice or the spring game.
