Trudo to decide in mid-August

Defensive end Rob Trudo is waiting on a few more schools to offer but regardless of what they do he has a decision looming.

The 6-foot-5, 262-pound strongside defensive end from Farrell Area High School in Pennsylvania told Rivals.com on Friday that he plans on making his decision within the next month, regardless of how the circumstances of his recruitment change.

"My family and I are going to visit Syracuse, Pitt and Cincinnati before I decide on (August) 15th," Trudo explained.

Trudo visited Pitt not too long ago with the hopes of picking up an offer from the Panthers but that did not happen. Nonetheless, he's holding out hope that it will happen in the next month as the coaching staff still seems interested.

As of now Trudo holds offers from Syracuse and Toledo. Cincinnati offered him earlier in the recruiting process, and as is the case with Pitt, it appears as though something would have to happen in order for the Bearcats to have room to bring him on board at this point. The fact that Trudo and his family will be visiting Cincinnati is a sign that they are holding out hope.

"As of now probably Syracuse (leads) simply because Cincinnati has their offensive line commitments and Pitt hasn't offered yet," he continued.

Trudo has not set the dates for those unofficial visits, but they will obviously all come in the next four weeks.
