Top In-State Talent Adds Two SEC Offers four-star defensive end Sidell Corley added two SEC offers to his list on Tuesday. It's a long way until National Signing Day, but the latest scholarship offers may have an early lead for his signature.

"Early Tuesday Sidell received an offer from Florida," said Sidell Corley, Sr. "Around 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, Alabama called and told me they had a scholarship for Sidell."

"Sidell is very excited about those two schools. He has offers from Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Memphis and Marshall as well."

"Sidell likes both of those programs a lot," Corley said of Alabama and Florida. "Right now, I believe it is going to come down between those two schools. He is going to check-out Ole Miss, Auburn, LSU and Notre Dame as well."

Several college coaches have visited McGill-Toolin High School in Mobile, (Ala.) as Corley shared, "LSU, Alabama, Mississippi State and Kentucky have all been by the school. It's has gotten crazy ever since signing day."

"I know Texas and Notre Dame are planning to come this spring. They have been sending Sidell a lot of mail. USC has just received his highlight tape as well."

McGill-Toolin will participate in the Nike Challenge in the spring bringing together six of the state's Class 6A schools for spring football games.

"Nike is sponsoring this big event for us," Corley said. "I know Daphne, Hoover, Prattville are all playing in it. I don't know of the other two teams. The date has not been determined yet. I believe we will play on the second day against Hoover. That is who we want to play."

The Crimson Tide may have the inside track for Sidell Corley as he plans several trips to the Capstone this spring.

"We are going to Alabama's Junior Day on March 4, and we are planning to go to A-Day," Corley said. "Sidell will attend the combine in Tuscaloosa as well. Alabama has always been one of his favorites. They are recruiting him pretty hard right now."

Corley recorded 9.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for a loss during his junior season at defensive end.
