Grenada athlete continues improving

Grenada (Miss.) High School prospect Trey Bledsoe is still hoping for his first offer. The 2013 wide receiver, safety told Rebels247 that he stays in contact with Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Southern Miss the most.

According to Bledsoe, the only out of state school that touches base with him is the Auburn Tigers.

The 6-2, 190-pound athlete camped at Ole Miss earlier this month. Bledsoe said he performed some drills well, but overall wasn’t happy with his outing.

“I did okay. It wasn’t my best though,” Bledsoe said. “I feel I can do a lot better. I need to work on my footwork a little more.”

Bledsoe said he’s been working extremely hard this summer. He feels the best way to receive an offer is through hard work.

“I’ve been lifting a lot of weights, running every day, doing a lot of cone drills and working on my ball skills,” Bledsoe said. “I’m just trying to get better.”

According to Bledsoe, Ole Miss assistant coach Grant Heard has been encouraging him to keep up the hard work.

“Coach Heard and I talked when I was at the camp,” Bledsoe said. “He told me to keep working hard.”

The visit to Ole Miss wasn’t his first time on campus. Bledsoe said he’s been to Ole Miss a few other times and really enjoys the campus.

“I really like their indoor facility,” Bledsoe said. “They have a great weight room and training room.”

While Bledsoe said he has a few things to work on, he feels he’s still a very solid athlete. He said he has good hands and the ability to elevate while in the air. Bledsoe showed just that while playing the Lafayette Commodores in a spring game last month.

Bledsoe said schools are still evaluating him on both sides of the football.

“They keep telling me to keep working at both,” Bledsoe said. “They’re not sure where they’d play me at yet.”

Bledsoe said he just wants a shot.

“I’ll play wherever the coaches need me to play,” Bledsoe said.

Until an offer comes, Bledsoe will continue to hold out hope that a scholarship is just around the corner.

“It really would mean a lot to me. It would mean even more since they’re in my state,” Bledsoe said, talking about an offer from a Mississippi school.
