Trudo has summer tour planned

Rob Trudo is one of the top defensive line prospects in Pennsylvania and his summer plans are pretty much mapped out.

The 6-foot-5, 262-pound end told Rivals.com over the weekend exactly what he plans to do in the coming weeks, and these plans could prove to be crucial in helping him to make a decision later in the process.

"Actually on (June) 15th I'm going to Cincinnati for their camp and to see their campus. I'll be down there for a couple of days," he said, noting that Cincinnati is one of the schools that has already offered him a scholarship, making the trip more of a fact-finding mission than a crucial performance.

"On (June) 18th I'm going to Pitt and then on the 20th I'm going down to West Virginia. I'm trying to get to Boston College and Syracuse sometime, too."

Pitt and West Virginia haven't offered Trudo yet, so he will be at those schools for camps as well. While at each school he is hoping to get a look at their respective campuses and facilities.

To date Cincinnati, Syracuse, Toledo, Akron and Youngstown have all offered Trudo.

"West Virginia said they were gonna ofer me when I get down there and meet all the coaches," he said. "They want me to meet the offensive line coach and everybody. That was a while back, though. I would say that was in March when they said that.

"As for Pitt, I don't know. I'll just go to their camp and hopefully walk out of their with an offer."

Trudo went on to say his current favorite is Syracuse.
