Coley to experience the process

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. - Stacy Coley has seen coaches from schools coast to coast at his school this spring and you can get the latest on this elite wideout right here.

"The recruiting process is going great for me," Stacy Coley told Scout. "I am taking it one day at a time, staying focused, and just going through the process."

Coaches from numerous prestigious schools have been out to Northeast High School to check on the Scout100 wide receiver and he scored three touchdowns in the spring game on May 22.

Schools from coast to coast are still recruiting Coley, and he is still giving them all a shot.

"I am just letting things go at a steady pace right now. I do not have any top schools, I am just going through the motions, and I am going at a good pace. I just want to take my time with the recruiting process."

Florida, Florida State, and Miami are all in the mix, and the 6-foot-1, 175-pound wideout likes all three.

"I like (wide receivers) coach (Aubrey) Hill and (head) coach (Will) Muschamp at Florida and when I was up there for their Junior Day, the coaches showed me a lot of love.

"Florida State is always a good team and I like the offense they run. They can be balanced, they can spread it out, and they usually have good quarterbacks there."

"The U (Miami) has great facilities, great coaches, and I like how a lot of their great players stay around the program."

Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia among other schools outside Florida have sent coaches by to check on Coley this spring, and he says they will get an equal look like those close to home.

"Location does not matter to me, I am just looking for the school that makes me feel at home," said Coley. "I want to go where I am comfortable with the coaches, comfortable with the offense, and just a place I feel good at. It does not matter if is it close or far away."

Look for the No. 6 wide receiver in America to take his time and not to commit to anyone until 2013.

"I will be making my decision on Signing Day. I want to take all of my official visits, go through the entire process, get good conversation with the coaches, and make the best decision for me."

Coley will likely stay open until the fall when he plans to narrow his list down to around five schools.
