''The break was good for him because he's having fun, but the travel and being on the road wears you down,'' his father, Fred Bledsoe Sr., told TheInsiders network
The elder Bledsoe added that he and his wife have been impressed with Tennessee and Oklahoma State.

Young Fred hopes to announce a decision shortly after he completes this weekend's tour of Fayetteville.
