"Sidell is looking forward to his senior year," said Sidell Corley, Sr. "He is still a soft commitment to Florida. He is going to take official visits to both in-state schools as well as Florida."
"The visit to the in-state schools has Florida on pins and needles."
"He isn't trying to fool or trick anybody. Penn State is still on top of him real hard. Miami is back on him again. He may take a visit Michigan State. He was offered as a freshman by coach [John] Smith when he was at Louisville. He may visit just out of loyalty for being the first to offer."
"We aren't going to play games with people. He could have gone to USC because he had a full ride out there. He didn't go out there for just a ride. He knew he wasn't going there and didn't want to waste their money."
"He is going on his visit to Alabama for the Iron Bowl [11/18]. He is going to Florida when they play LSU [10/7]. We may go to Louisville [9/16] when they play Miami. I am not sure when the Auburn visit is right now."
A lot of schools are pushing hard for Corley's signature in February, but his final decision will come down to the Gators, Tide or Tigers.
"Sidell is in communication with Auburn and Alabama five times a week," Corley said. "He is in touch with them all the time. He talks to coach Kines [Alabama defensive coordinator] all the time. He loves coach Kines. He is totally crazy about coach Kines. He really likes the way he coaches."
"Florida of course doesn't want to lose him like D'Angelo McCray. I know [Jerry] Howard is taking visits as well. He is just doing what they are doing. They offered another defensive lineman. He is still firm to Florida, but he is taking some visits."
"It's really down to the in-state schools and Florida. He isn't turning his back on Florida. He is just making sure everything is still what it's suppose to be. He wants to make sure he is making the right decision."
McGill-Toolen (6A) will open their season with powerhouse UMS-Wright (5A), and work-outs for both teams have been difficult in the Alabama summer heat.
Corley is a versatile player, and he may see a couple of different positions this fall with his dad on the sidelines as one of the assistant coaches for the Yellow Jackets.
"We talked about him playing tight end this year," Corley said. "He has been playing linebacker, but we are probably going to play him at defensive end. The linebacker coach wanted him a linebacker, and the defensive end coach wants him at defensive end."
"We have a package called "heavy on offense" where he is the fullback. The more he gets in shape, the more he can play. He is doing all right. He got all his maxes up this summer. He is benching 405-pounds, cleans 305-pounds and squats 465-pounds. His 40 time is down as well."
