Sidney Has Commitment Date In Mind

Mar. 4 -- Four-star athlete Trevon Sidney says that UCLA is among the top four schools recruiting him hardest...

We've been watching Trevon Sidney since the summer prior to his sophomore year with the Lancers. He has always been a talented two-way player and we've gone back and forth on whether to slot him with the corners or receivers.

He has the talent to be an elite player on either side of the ball but his heart is definitely with the receivers. He had a strong tournament at the Pylon 7v7 in Las Vegas, showing why he's easily among the top pass catchers in the region.

"Wide receiver is definitely my love and my passion," Sidney said. "It's where I want to play in college and that would impact my decision, where a school was recruiting me. If two schools were equal but one liked me for receiver and the other defense, I would lean towards the one that wanted me on offense.

"Early on, everyone was saying corner for me, all the colleges but now, everyone has switched over and is recruiting me at receiver. That's where I'm putting all the work in training wise and where I'm practicing at so I'm a better player there."

On the recruiting front, Sidney said four schools are currently recruiting him the hardest.

"I'm hearing the most from USC, Washington, UCLA and Notre Dame," Sidney said. "I'm going to do some spring and summer visits but I don't have anything set up right now. I know I'll check out USC and UCLA for spring ball but that's all I know for sure right now.

"I'm playing in the Army AA Game and I'm planning to commit then. I don't have a leader right now but by the time the game gets here, I'm confident I will. I'm looking for a school that feels like home to me, where I have good relationships with the coaching staff and where I can play early. Playing close to home would be nice but not a deal breaker, more of an added bonus than anything."

Update: Since we talked to Sidney in Las Vegas, he picked up an offer from Michigan. Here's an article talking about that offer right here-Sidney talks Michigan offer
