Rudolph Now Set To Announce On Wednesday

It was somewhat of a surprise that Kyle Allen, Scout's top-rated quarterback in the class of 2014, made his commitment on Monday to Texas A&M. Allen is gifted and had trimmed his list last week to Texas A&M, UCLA, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma State. Now OSU fans have their eyes fixed on the Cowboys other quarterback offer they are in play for in Mason Rudolph.

Mason Rudolph was a visitor to Oklahoma State on April 20 for the Spring Football Finale and has had the Cowboys on his short list ever since. The list really became short with OSU and LSU, but may have got a little longer over the weekend with an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech.

Either way it will be down to one by the middle of the day on Wednesday.

"I was going to announce last week and then I decided on the end of this week," said Rudolph, who has been a standout at Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, S.C. "We are still in school and I decided it would be a lot more fun to announce there rather than a random day in the summer. It will be cool.

"We have finals starting on Thursday, so that is why we've moved it up to Wednesday. It will be around 11 or 11:45 (ET) on Wednesday. Our radio station that does our games is coming out to broadcast."

Randolph visited a number of schools during the spring including the likes of Georgia, Auburn, Mississippi, LSU and Oklahoma State. He ended up visiting one more on Saturday.

"We went up to Virginia Tech," he said. "I thought I needed to see it since it is a car drive and not a three-hour plane flight. We went up there and my grandparents live close by so we made it kind of a family thing. I was just there Saturday."

Rudolph isn't giving away his choice, but did explain what he's thinking. "I mainly know what I am going to do, but I am still praying about it," Rudolph added.

At 6-4 1/2 to 6-5 and 210 pounds, Rudolph does make quite a presence and he has plenty of talent. He also has a big arm and 4.66 speed.

Last season, he completed 69 percent of his passes (346-of-504) for 4,010 yards with 41 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. As a sophomore, he completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,619 yards with 27 touchdowns and six interceptions. As stated, he can also run the ball and had 475 yards and 10 touchdowns rushing last season as a junior.
