Trudo recaps a couple of trips

The last time we caught up with Rob Trudo the rising senior from Pennsylvania said he was gearing up for a summer tour of some of the schools that have been recruiting him.
True to his word, Trudo has been on the road a little bit lately.
The 6-foot-5, 262-pound defensive end from Farrell (Pa.) Farrell Area recently visited Cincinnati and camped at Toledo while he was in Ohio. How did those trips go?
"Cincinnati was real nice," he said. "I liked it a lot. I like what they've got going on. You can tell when you step on campus it's a football atmosphere there.
"I actually went for the camp and they pulled me out before it started. They took me and the people I was there with the talk to coach Jones. We talked for about 15 or 20 minutes just to get a feel for the type of guy he was. He seemed genuine."
The Bearcats have already offered Trudo a scholarship, as has Toledo. Trudo just camped at Toledo and he didn't get a chance to see much of the school or what was going on beyond the camp, but he did say that he had a good time.
Trudo will be visiting another Big East school this coming week, and one that has not yet offered.
"I'm going down to Pitt next Wednesday or Thursday and they're going to offer me. Basically, what happened was my recruiting coach (from Pitt) said he wanted me to go to their camp but I couldn't go. They got word Cincinnati and West Virginia were about to offer and I guess they want to too."
West Virginia has not formally offered Trudo yet, but the Mountaineers have been trying to get him down to the school to get a first hand look at him and make it official. He said he would like to take that trip but he has a lot going on and it might be difficult with his schedule with his own team.
Trudo plans on making his decision on his birthday, August 15. When asked whether he has a favorite he replied, "Well, I did like Syracuse but after I saw Cincinnati I don't know. There's really no clear cut favorite."
Trudo is ranked the No. 37 prospect in Pennsylvania by Rivals.com.
