"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.
