Eddie Rollman: I'm 6-4 and I now weigh 287.
CT: Now you just tripped to SMU, how did you like it?
ER: I liked it pretty good. It felt kind of like home. They looked like everybody on the team was pretty close.
CT: Now you originally had Arizona among your top schools before the coaching change, correct?
ER: I had Arizona in my top five and then I kind of dropped them off my list because I didn't know who their coach was going to be. But now that they have Mike Stoops up there as their coach I'm looking at them again.
CT: Weren't you looking at Oklahoma State there for awhile?
ER: I went on an unofficial to Oklahoma State but I didn't really like it.
CT: Were you offered by the previous staff?
ER: I was offered by the previous staff and Coach Stoops has told me that offer is still good.
CT: What got you interested in Arizona in the first place?
ER: I met some of the coaches and they had seemed pretty nice and I really just wanted to go out there and see if I like it.
CT: Have you talked to any of the new Arizona coaches?
ER: I've talked to Coach Stoops a couple of times and I'm going up there Tuesday (Jan., 13). I'm going to miss school to check it out.
CT: Have met or talk to any of the other coaches?
ER: Well I know Coach Wolford because he was at North Texas and he was recruiting me when he was there.
CT: Is there a chance you will commit before you complete all your trips?
ER: No, I'm going to take all of my trips and I've already told them (Arizona) that. They don't have a problem with it. I want to have all of my visits done within two weeks so I can make a decision.
CT: What are the main things you will be looking at in selecting a school? Academics, weather or social life?
ER: Well there will be academics everywhere I'm looking, but the social aspect is important because if I don't like it, then what's the point? Weather might be a factor because I've never been up to Indiana or those other climates.
CT: How did your team do this year?
ER: We were 14-1.
CT: What honors did you receive?
ER: First team all-state and first team all CenTex.
Rollman, who will be visiting the UA on Jan. 13, had just returned from SMU when Cat Tracks caught up with him.
CT: What is your strong point as an offensive lineman?
ER: I would say pass blocking is my strongest point. We were a passing team. We ran a spread offense for the last three years.
CT: What is your bench press?
ER: My max is about 320.
CT: Did it have a big impact on you when Mike Stoops was named head coach?
ER: Yeah. It tells me that they are going to turn that organization around and win some games up there. It has a lot of impact.
CT: Do you know any players on the Arizona team?
ER: No, I don't know any players on the team but I know they have a lot of Texans.
