What Razor Lacks in Size, He Makes Up with Heart

At 5-7 160, even Rodell Razor would agree that he does not fit the dimensions of a prototypical cornerback. Nevertheless, ASU and other Pac-10 teams are intrigued enough that they have been contacting him the last few months. Razor told DevilsDigest that hearing about his lack of physical dimensions is a constant source of motivation.

"The minute I step on the field," said Rodell Razor, "coaches, scouts, and the crowd are thinking ‘what is this guy doing on the field?' So, I'm always out there trying to prove people wrong." The cornerback added that he does feel that he is a viable recruiting prospect. "I don't have any offers right now," said Rodell Razor. "Arizona State, Oregon, and Oregon State have been sending me letters. I'm OK with the schools recruiting me, because I want to stay in the Pac-10." However, he mentioned that he was disappointed that hometown school Washington hasn't really being recruiting him thus far.

The Federal Way High School standout had 45 tackles and 1 interception as a junior; he also played wide receiver and had 16 catches for 208 yards. "My strong points are that I always play strong and always play to win," he said. "I obviously don't have the size, but I play with a lot of heart. I bench 210 pounds, which is good for my size, but I know I have to get stronger. I run a 4.56, so I need to get faster to play on the college level." He added that he planned to go to the Nike camp in Seattle, as well as to the Washington and Oregon camps. "I'm also trying to get to the ASU camp."

When it comes to his final decision, the cornerback will not look far to seek guidance. "My mom has to like the school," he said. "She's going to be a big influence on my decision. She's very involved in my recruiting. I want to be a business major, so if the school I'm looking at has a good business program that will help."

"But more importantly," Razor continued. "I have to like the program. Talking to the coach and liking him is more important than if the team won a national championship the year before."
