Trudo's second offer in

Last month Syracuse became the first school to offer a scholarship to Rob Trudo. Now a second school has followed suit.

The 6-foot-5, 262-pound defensive lineman from Farrell, Pa. is strongly considering the Orange and some of the other schools that have shown interest thus far, but right now he's excited over the fact that another school has offered him a scholarship.

"Toledo offered me and it came in today," Trudo said on Saturday evening. "I talked to one of their recruiters. His name was Jason Candle. He was in the area and he stopped by here because we're a good team. We've been in the state final four the last two years and he wanted to check us out and see what kind of talent we have. He hadn't seen any of my film, but when he came I showed him that I did 225 (pound bench press) 21 times."

Trudo has been keeping in regular contact with Syracuse and West Virginia, though the Mountaineers have not offered him a scholarship yet.

"The whole staff knows about me," he said of West Virginia. "They want me to go down as soon as possible so I'll definitely be going down to their camp. I'll go to the one at Syracuse, also. I would like to try to go to Boston College to see what their campus is like but that's more of a long shot."

Earlier this month Trudo revealed that his five favorite schools are Syracuse, Ohio State, West Virginia, Boston College and Penn State, in no particular order.
