“Our coaches were working the camp at Cal (Berkley) so I went out there too,” Randle said.
After his trip, though, the 5-star wide out will take a closer look at Jeff Tedford’s program.
“Not really,” Randle said when asked if Cal was a school he was interested in prior to the trip, “But it’s a real nice play out there and they take care of their players.”
Randle said that he didn’t take part in the camp at Cal but he did spend a little time talking to Tedford about what his role would be if he chose to head out West.
“Coach Tedford started to talk to me about playing quarterback but then he said that I wasn’t going to play there at the next level,” Randle said. “He just told me about the opportunity I’d have to play there and stuff like that. He told me if I worked hard I could go in and play early.”
The Bastrop (La.) product had planned on taking it easy for the remainder of summer with an unofficial trip in-state and a little getaway planned to go see his brother but there may be another trip or two on his agenda.
“My receivers coach told me that coach Brad (Bradshaw) wanted me to go to Michigan and Notre Dame the second week in July but we didn’t go into details about so I don’t much about it right now,” said Randle. “I’m planning to go to LSU in July for their camp but I’m not going to workout for it.”
When Randle makes the trip to Baton Rouge it will be his second one in two months following a visit back on May 25.
Some in Louisiana are concerned that the state’s top player on the offensive side of the ball may opt to leave the state so at this point in time how would Randle rate his interest in the local school?
“It’s a high interest and I do feel comfortable down there and stuff like that,” Randle said. “It’s close to home and my family likes it plus they’ve got a close relationship with all of the coaches. So it’s a pretty high rating.”
One thing that comes into play with many guys his age is proximity to home. Is that something that could play a factor in his decision?
“I think so in the long run but I’d have to sit down and talk with everyone and see how they feel about it,” Randle said.
Finally, there were some reports that Randle had tabbed Miami as his leader following his visit last week.
Heading down the stretch of June is there any school that has a slight lead in the race for his signature?
“No sir,” he said. “When I had seen that I thought ‘I don’t remember saying that to anybody I talked to.’ I’m still looking around and pretty much everybody is even.”
