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.”
