LB Tarik Rollins Profile
6-2, 200 pound star linebacker Tarik Rollins has committed to the Clemson Tigers.
Last Wednesday Rollins notified Clemson assistant coach David Blackwell that he wanted to be a Tiger.
"I called coach Blackwell last Wednesday," Rollins said. "He was in a meeting when I called so everyone started clapping and yelling.
"After that I talked with Coach Bowden. He said he was very excited I had decided to commit to Clemson."
Rollins took an official visit to Clemson for the Florida State game.
"I liked it a lot," Rollins said of his visit. "I got there Sunday morning. I left on Tuesday afternoon. The fans were really crazy at the game. The environment was intense."
Several top programs have offered Rollins including LSU, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Wake Forest.
In fact, Rollins only officially visited Clemson and Wake Forest before making his decision.
"I really liked the school when I took the official visit," he said. "I went to a visit to Wake Forest that same week. Those were the only two official visits I had setup so I decided I wanted to go ahead and commit to Clemson."
When asked how firm his commitment is to Clemson, Rollins responded, "I'm very firm. I'm hoping I can make it up for the Virginia Tech in a few weeks. I can't wait."
Rollins is the second linebacker to commit to the Tigers in the 2008 recruiting class.
