"I called Coach Summers the other day and told him that I wouldn't be able to make it to their camp because of transportation problems," Dedeaux said on Sunday evening. "He said that it was okay and that everything would work out, so I hope that's a positive."
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Dedeaux is both an effective pass-catching and blocking tight end who hauled in 23 receptions for 410-yards and five scores as a junior. While he projects strictly as a tight end on the college level, he also recorded 79 tackles, including 11 for a loss and 5 sacks from the defensive end position last fall.
"Everyone is recruiting me as a tight end," he said.
'Everyone' includes those that have extended scholarship offers (Oklahoma State, SMU, Tulsa), as well as a host of others (Arkansas, Kansas, Louisville, Oklahoma) that are displaying a high amount of interest.
"I'm hoping that one comes soon," Dedeaux said of a possible Louisville offer. "I couldn't guarantee that they will, but I hope so."
When asked about Louisville, he was quick to point out Bobby Petrino's explosive offense and frequent use of the tight end in the passing game.
"I know Louisville's offense is great and they use the tight ends a lot," he said.
Even with a trio of offers and future camps still to attend, Dedeaux made it clear that the Cardinal program was the one to beat.
"I'm pretty sure that if they offered that I'd go there," he explained. "Actually I know so, if they offered, I would definately go there."
Dedeaux will camp at Kansas State this coming weekend.
