Miami lands 2014 WR Rudolph


Wide receiver Travis Rudolph (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) became the second Miami commitment in the Class of 2014 on Wednesday. The 6-foot, 175-pound sophomore attended Al Golden's camp over the weekend and was offered on Wednesday.

"I didn't need much time after the offer because Miami is really the school I love," Rudolph said. "It's been the program I've dreamed of playing for."

Rudolph went to the camp Sunday hoping to do well enough to get on the radar of Hurricane coaches.

"There were no expectations for me when I went to the camp," Rudolph said. "I was just hoping to do well enough to get noticed but I heard that the players that did really well at the camp could get an offer. I thought I performed well but I didn't know how the coaches felt.

"When they offered the coaches talked about my work ethic and how much they liked my attitude."

The offer confirmed Rudolph's thoughts and the Hurricanes are hoping he can be one of their cornerbacks of the future. However, currently Rudolph spends most of his time on the offensive side of the ball.

"I think they are looking for me to play cornerback," Rudolph added. "Generally I think wide receiver is my best position but that's because I've spent so much time at the position. I think I could be a great cornerback but it's something I'm going to have to focus more on doing over the next couple of years."
