Rollins Loves the Energy at Arizona

Dallas Skyline Cornerback prospect, Roderick Rollins, is now up to 18 offers and maintains that the Cats are right in the thick of things. He sees the potential at Arizona and says the coaches continue to stress how badly they want him in Tucson.

As a junior, Roderick Rollins, had 55 tackles, three interceptions and one fumble recovery. He was named first team all-district. He plays strictly at corner and all schools, except Minnesota, like him at corner. "Minnesota says that they might like me at safety and would try me there," he explains.

The Gophers are in his top six, with Boston College, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Arizona, and Arizona State. "Boston College is my favorite, followed by Kansas State.

"It is just that ever since I received my official letter from Boston College, they have just been keeping on me. Them and K-State are definitely showing me the most attention. It seems like Boston College is trying to bring back their glory days, like when Doug Flutie was there."

BC is also getting a little help from a close family member. "My dad's favorite has changed. He liked Baylor first, but now he likes BC. My mom likes Oklahoma and they said they could offer by the first game."

With an Arizona offer in hand, the Dallas corner insists the Cats are in the hunt, despite his fondness of BC and KSU. "The coaches at Arizona are so energetic. Every time I see one of the Stoops brothers they are so optimistic and tell me how much they want me. Mike and Mark are both great coaches and I really think they will get things going out there."

Mark is recruiting him for the Wildcats.

Oddly enough, neither of the Texas corner's favorite college teams growing up have offered. "Nebraska and Michigan were my teams in my childhood. Nebraska says that they are still evaluating me and they want to see a couple of games before they think about offering. I have not heard from Michigan at all."

He has one official visit scheduled, to Boston College on September 17th.

Rollins carries a 2.9 core GPA and scored a 790 on his first SAT attempt. "I will re-take it soon after school starts."

He has different ideas regarding majors. "If I go to Kansas State, I will major in Agriculture. If I go to Boston College, I will major in Arts and Sciences, or something that has to do with Computers."
