Rudolph to commit at All-Star game

Travis Rudolph, a 2014 receiver from Cardinal Newman High School arrived in Gainesville bright and early today for Friday Night Lights. Rudolph spent most of the summer playing in 7-on-7 tournaments with other Florida targets Quincy Wilson, Ermon Lane and Chris Lammons.

Rudolph told Gator Country that he arrived early to get some film work in with new wide receivers coach Joker Phillips and that he is looking forward to getting some work in down on the field tonight.

“Yeah, most likely I’m going to work out,” Rudolph said. “I’m not really trying to show anything, I’m just coming out here to get some work in.”

Rudolph said that he has talked to Will Muschamp a couple of times but that Joker Phillips is his main recruiter from Florida and that he is looking forward to using Friday Night Lights as an opportunity to meet with the coaching staff in person.

“I’m just coming out here to see the coaches in person and to get some work,” Rudolph said. “They don’t really have to show me much. I’m probably just going to go in and hang out”

While Rudolph’s commitment is still wide open, he did say that Alabama, Vanderbilt and Florida are recruiting him the hardest.

Rudolph is taking his recruitment as it comes and said that he is in no rush to verbally commit to a school right away. He’s content on riding out the process throughout his senior season in high school and plans on committing in January

“First thing next year most likely,” Rudolph said of when he will announce his college decision. “Probably the All-American game.”

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
