Jag baseball to open SBC Tournament with UALR http://t.co/tuSJje5A27
The first week of May the Jaguars pulled the trigger on an offer to Valdes, joining Massachusetts, FAU, Ball State, Toledo and Western Michigan. Iowa State has shown recent interest and more programs are likely to follow after a Co-MVP performance at a recent Rivals camp. However, Valdes said that he is taking little notice of recruiting right now, focusing on the upcoming season for Lakewood.
His size would indicate that he is a possession-type receiver but Valdes takes pride in being an all-around receiver who can also go deep and is willing to block. He thinks his ability to run after the catch is is greatest attribute as a receiver.
The most important factor when choosing a college for him will be the availability of playing time. Obviously academics will play a role in his future as well as he has aspirations of majoring in sports management or becoming a sports attorney.
It appears as though Valdes will wait to select a college until after his senior season and JagsJungle.com will keep you apprised when that decision is reached.
