At 5-foot-10 and 210 pounds, Marianna's Reshard Dudley helped lead his team to the state championship game a year ago. He had 2,552 yards rushing and 30 touchdowns in 15 games. He also had 84 tackles as a linebacker on defense. He got off to a strong start this season, rushing for 315 yards and four touchdowns in his first two games. Then early in the third, he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. After going 14-3 in its last 17 games with Dudley, the team then went 2-6 to finish the season. Is that a team MVP or what? The talented back has a 2.5 core and just took the test in late October.
WHICH SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN CALLING YOU LATELY AND WHICH HAVE OFFERED: Miami still calls, UCF still calls, Florida, LSU, and Georgia. Those are my final five, and they have all offered.
HAVE YOU SCHEDULED ANY VISITS: I go to Georgia on December 1, LSU on December 14, Central Florida on January 11, Florida on January 18, and Miami on January 25.
IF SIGNING DAY WERE TOMORROW, WHAT'S IT LOOKING LIKE: I really dont have a favorite. I'd like to stay local, though.
TALK ABOUT MIAMI: They're very strong. They mix it around a lot offensively. They always get 2 or 3 running backs involved and they told me I'm one of the ones they want this year.
Personally, I love Dudley. His running style is perfect for this offense. He seems wide open at this time, and his visits will be the telling story in his decision-making process.
