Huskies Are Right In The Mix For Sidney

Because one of the top wideouts in the country plays on the other side of the field, Bishop Amat (La Puente, Ca.) athlete Trevon Sidney's receiving skills have gone a bit unnoticed. The talented two-way star told recently he plans to make scouts stand up and take notice this offseason and he hopes to get an opportunity on offense once he gets to college...

"Washington offered me a little while ago and I am pretty sure they are looking at me to play both (wide receiver and cornerback) because coach (Jimmy) Lake is the one that offered but I talk to coach (Brent) Pease more about playing offense," Sidney told "I feel like I have a real good relationship with the coaches up there and I like what I am hearing about the program up there, but I need to check out things, hopefully this spring, before I can really say how much I like them."

In addition to his offer from the Huskies, Sidney also sports offers from the likes of Tennessee, Colorado, Arizona, Miami, Notre Dame, UCLA, USC and Utah.

As a junior this past fall, Sidney was a lock-down corner for the Lancers, totaling 47 tackles and four interceptions while knocking down over 10 passes while on offense, he finished with 38 receptions for 540 yards and three touchdowns.

"I feel like I can do both pretty well, but I prefer wide receiver," Sidney noted. "I just love wide receiver. It's what I put most of my time into and I don't really get to play it, so some people don't know but I'm a better receiver than I am a defensive back."

Sidney will get the chance to show his skills on both sides of the ball later this month (February 28th - March 1st) when he takes part in the Pylon Athletics National 7 on 7 tournament in Las Vegas as a member of the BBT (Body By Tra) team along with his teammate, Tyler Vaughns.

The athlete from the Inland Empire has not set a timeline for when he'd like to make a decision, but he did say he hopes to take at least a few official visits before he commits to a school. Top Stories
