S Shaq Roland Profile
That name, Shaq Roland, is garnering a lot of attention, not only for his abilities on the football field, but also basketball court.
As a sophomore, he complied over 2,000 yards of total offense scored 25 touchdowns on the gridiron and led the basketball team to the 4A state title game, averaging close to 20 points and nine rebounds a game.
Clemson and South Carolina are among the 20 or so schools that have offered in football. Florida, LSU, Texas A&M, North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia Tech are just a sampling of schools that already jumped on board with full rides.
The Lexington High School rising junior recently spoke to CUTigers.
"South Carolina is a pretty good school, I could see myself going there," Roland said. "I feel the same way about Clemson that I feel about South Carolina. I could see myself going there, too."
The Gamecocks and Florida have already offered Roland full-rides to come play basketball.
When playing basketball this summer, he's suiting up with the South Carolina Hornets to run in various AAU tournaments.
"I've been doing a lot of resting this summer," Roland said.
Since he's been resting a lot, his presence on the football recruiting/camp has been limited. But Roland does have plans on the horizon.
"I'm going to Georgia this Friday," he said. "I'm trying to visit Florida, too."
The rising junior hasn't decided which sport he'd prefer to play at the next level.
"It's got to be a good football or basketball school. I want to go somewhere that I can get some playing time when I get there," he said.
Roland's main recruiter to Clemson is defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison.
