Coley focused on one thing

Wide receiver Stacy Coley has put recruiting on the back burner this fall as he is focused on leading his Northeast (Oakland Park, FL) team to a state title. Still, he's keeping in touch with a couple of schools and may visit one later this month. Get the latest on Coley right here.

When talking with Stacy Coley, it's almost hard to get him to say anything about his recruitment. It is clear the 2013 wide receiver is focused on his season and being a leader for his team like never before. For Coley, it all comes back to his team. He's worked hard this season to put the team first and have a winning attitude.

"My season is going well. Right now, we're 8-1, trying to succeed in the playoffs and go to state," Coley said.

"What's different (from last season) is my leadership. I'm trying to stay humble and carry this team, carry it to where it's never been in the last decade. I feel like I'm helping the team a lot. We are just staying humble and focused on going to state."

Coley has said for some time that he won't think too much about recruiting until after his season is over. Not much has changed there, but there are three main schools that seem to contact him the most.

"Right now, same old same old with the recruiting. Florida State is recruiting me hard, Ole Miss, and Miami has come along too," he said.

"I don't have a favorite. I'm just staying focused with the season and not worrying about the recruiting. I'm staying focused, and I'll make my decision in February."

Coley plans to visit all the schools after his season, but he's hoping he might get up to Tallahassee at the end of November to see FSU welcome Florida.

Florida State and Miami are both in the mix for the wide receiver's skills.

"(FSU's) offense is very organized, they throw the ball a lot. Of course, I'm a wide receiver, so I look at that, and the quarterback is a good quarterback, so the offense is a good fit for me," he said.

"Miami, the same thing. Miami throws the ball too. I haven't paid too much attention because I really haven't had the time to watch them that much."

Visiting schools won't be the only thing on the calendar for Coley after the season. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete will compete in the Under Armour All-American game, and he's excited to match-up against some of the nation's top talent.

"It'll be a lot of competition, I'm excited about that, and going to another place, but mostly the competition," he said.
