Some players spend their entire summers on elaborate tours that take them from college campus to college campus. Others attend a few camps and spend most of their time working out in the weight room and just flat out working at a real job. Midwest City, Okla., tight end Bradley Dedeaux falls into that second group.
The 6-foot-2, 238-pound Dedeaux has attended the Kansas summer camp and will be attending the LSU camp later in July, but for the most part this summer he has been working hard hitting the weights and working at Mathis Brothers, a local furniture store in Oklahoma City.
"It is terrible work," Dedeaux, ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 12 player in Oklahoma, said.
"I'm there working with LaRon (Moore), and we just hate it. It's terrible. It's some of the hardest work you'll ever do. They make you move stuff all over the place, but it's keep us in shape and helping us workout when we're not working out in the weight room."
When he's not sweating at work, Dedeaux has some time to think about his future. At this point he has offers from Kansas, Oklahoma State, SMU and Tulsa. He's also getting a lot of interest from Oklahoma, Louisville, LSU and Kansas State.
"I was up at Kansas' camp on the 10th of June, and I really liked it up there," Dedeaux said. "Coach (Brandon) Blaney and coach (Bill) Young were good guys. I really liked Blaney. He's cool. LaRon and I are working out and getting ready to head over to LSU later on to see where we'd fit in there.
"Coach (Josh) Henson and coach (Les) Miles are guys that I got to know when they were at Oklahoma State, and they want to see if we're interested in LSU, so we'll be over there."
But to be honest, Dedeaux said it's tough to tell what's going to happen with his future.
"I'm just going to let all this happen," he said. "I don't want to rush it or make a quick decision. I want it to be the right one."
Oklahoma State assistant Doug Meacham, SMU assistant Eric Roark, Tulsa coach Matt Wells and K-State assistant Greg Peterson were other coaches that Dedeaux mentioned he liked getting to know. He also pointed out that he likes Louisville's offense a lot, and it's a team he's going to consider from outside of the region.
