Dudley keeping his word

Marianna, Fla., running back Reshard Dudley is a man of his word.
Dudley, the 5-foot-10, 210-pound running back, promised the LSU coaching staff that he wanted to give them a fair shot at landing him. So when the coach that is recruiting him said he wouldn't be there on Nov. 30 because of a family issue, Dudley re-worked his visit to Baton Rouge to Dec. 7.
"I wanted to be there when coach Muschcamp was there," Dudley said. "He made me promise that I wouldn't come that weekend, so I just changed things around."
And he's changed them around quite a bit.
Dudley, a four-star back, is now set to visit UGA on Nov. 30, LSU on Dec. 7, Central Florida on Jan. 11, Florida on Jan. 18 and Miami on Jan. 25.
Central Florida is a newcomer on his list and noticeably absent is the Tennessee Volunteers, one of Dudley's long time favorites.
"I just looked at Tennessee and they have too many running backs," Dudley said. "Central Florida is a team that has always been there. I really like the coaches and the players there, so I decided to go take a visit."
Dudley said LSU continues to be his "slight leader" in the recruiting process, but it's looking more and more like he wants to at least take several official visits.
