Dallas Cornerback Has ASU in His Top Three

Skyline (Dallas) cornerback Rodrick Rollins is located in the heart of Big 12 country, but his desire to venture away from home could land him in the Pac-10 or ACC.

"My family wants me to stay close," said the 5-11 155 Roderick Rollins, "but for some reason I feel like I want to get out and see what America has to offer (smile). I have ASU, Arizona and Boston College in my top three."

According to the cornerback, the Sun Devils offered a scholarship in writing last week. "Kansas State, Boston College, Arizona, TCU, and Oklahoma State all offered me too," he said. "I'm talking to Oklahoma now and they'll probably offer me a scholarship."

Rollins admitted that thus far he hasn't learned much about Arizona State, but he does feel that it would be a good fit for him. "I like the defense they run and I watched them in the Sun Bowl and they played a great game there."

Rollins acknowledged the fact that for a cornerback, there are no better proving grounds that the high passing attacks of the Pac-10, which does explain the fact why two of his favorites are members of that conference. "I consider myself a team leader and someone who makes a lot of big plays," he said of his skills. "I have great technique but I want to excel and get better at it."

The cornerback plans to attend summer camps at Texas A&M, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas Tech. Rollins carries a 3.0 GPA and took the SAT for the first time last Saturday.
