Busy Month for Corley

Defensive end Sidell Corley of McGill-Toolen High School in Mobile, Ala., talks about his upcoming visits, Nick Saban and San Antonio.

San Antonio, Tex.--Army All-American defensive end Sidell Corley has been a verbal commitment to Florida since the summer, but he is keeping an open mind and has his list down to four schools--Florida, Tennessee, Alabama and Auburn.

During the upcoming weekend Corley will be playing in the Army All-American Bowl and after that it will be time to make his official visits and finalize his decision.

"I'm going to try to get them all in this month," Corley explains. "I'm just still looking."

Corley will be in Knoxville the weekend of Jan. 12 checking out the Phil Fulmer's program along with fellow East player Eric Berry, who is committed to Tennessee. The next weekend Corley says he'll probably be making a visit to Auburn.

Alabama, which hired Nick Saban as head coach on Wednesday, and Florida will get the final two visits. Corley made an official visit to Oklahoma in December.

"Trust me, I had plenty of Alabama friends text me," Corley says of the Alabama news. "I have never talked to him. I know he recruited one of my teammates when I was at St. Paul--Chevis Jackson, a DB at LSU. I haven't talked to him about Saban yet."

Corley, who has been in San Antonio since Sunday practicing for the game that will be played at noon, CST on Saturday, adds that he's had a good time thus far in Texas.

"Practice has been going well and they're taking good care of us," he notes. "They're feeding us well and I think I've gained some weight since I've been up here."
