No favorites for Coley

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast four-star wide receiver Stacy Coley attracted a lot of attention from opposing defenders on Saturday at the Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Championship. He attracted equal attention in the spring from college scouts, but says his focus was on helping his team prepare for the upcoming season.
"Spring went great," Coley said. "We went hard. We were just trying to get better as a team."
While the 6-foot-1, 175-pound wide receiver was focused on the field, he did notice some of the schools that dropped in.
"USF, Clemson, South Carolina, Florida State, and a lot of other schools came by," Coley said. "Miami also came by, but I don't know much about that. You would have to ask (Northeast) Coach (Donnell) Bennett."
The Rivals100 prospect, who admits that he isn't focusing too heavily on his recruitment at this time, says that he has dealt with a pair of coaching staffs a good bit in recent months.
"I deal a lot with the coaches at USF and FSU," Coley said. "I've talked to them quite a bit and they really want me to camp. I am going to try and do that."
With regards to those camp plans, the South Florida wideout shared his upcoming schedule.
"Right now I have a trip planned, that is to USF with the offensive linemen, so I will be going with my offensive line coach," Coley said. "I am going to visit on June 23rd.
"I think my coach is also taking me to FSU in July," Coley added.
Coley has previously been quoted as having a leader or list of favorites, but he says he needs to do more evaluation on his options before he truly shares a list of favorites.
"Nobody really stands out," Coley said. "I will sit down with my coaches and look at each school's offense and the quarterbacks that they have. I will also take some visits. Hopefully I make my right decision.
"Whatever school makes me feel at home, I will be good with that," Coley added.
Coley intends to take all five of his officials. Some possible out-of-state destinations he mentioned included North Carolina, Ole Miss, and West Virginia.
The No. 6 wide receiver in the nation claims offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Marshall, Miami, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Purdue, South Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and West Virginia.
As for when he may make a decision, Coley said it would most likely be on National Signing Day.
