Dudley-Giles might not choose college until after signing day

Pasco star athlete Trey Dudley-Giles is still undecided on his college choice – and he might not make his mind up until National Signing Day at the earliest.

The three-star recruit and the North Suncoast's co-player of the year has taken official visits to UMass and Middle Tennessee State. He said those are among two of his favorites with eight days before he could sign a letter of intent.

Dudley-Giles stressed that he will make his college decision with his family and that he might not sign until after Feb. 1.

"As of right now, I'm not sure yet," Dudley-Giles said.

Memphis is also making a late push for Dudley-Giles. The Tigers want him to visit the school but have not yet offered him a scholarship.

Dudley-Giles said he wants to go to a smaller school where he can play as a freshman – and UMass and Middle Tennessee State would both give him that chance. UMass is recruiting him as a defensive back, while MTSU views him as a receiver.

"(They're) a nice-size university where I won't go to a program and get lost and sit behind somebody," Dudley-Giles said.

Dudley-Giles is one of the North Suncoast's top talents. He has offers from Rutgers, Ball State, East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Ohio and South Alabama.

The 6-foot, 190-pound speedster finished with 23 touchdowns and almost 1,700 all-purpose yards at receiver, running back and Wildcat QB. He totaled 1,066 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, five interceptions (one for a TD), two TD rushes and four special teams touchdowns.
