"I should have an established top five by September," said Rose, from Jefferson SR High School.
"I've narrowed the list down to Florida, Michigan, USC, Duke, Oklahoma, Alabama, South Carolina, South Florida, Maryland, Notre Dame and Florida State. They've all offered me," he said.
"Academics come first for me and then my level of comfort with a coaching staff and then the atmosphere around the campus. All of these programs are even and I'd like to take at least three or four official visits before I make my decision sometime in January.
"I've been out to Florida, Alabama and South Florida for unofficial visits already, and I plan to get out to Florida State, South Carolina, Duke and Notre Dame for more unofficial visits this summer," he said.
"I won't go to any camps this summer," he said. "Location is not a factor for me, I'm just looking for the school that feels the most comfortable. "Florida and Duke are recruiting me the hardest right now. I'm on a constant level of communication with the coaches there everyday. They also send me text messages and handwritten letters every day," he said. 3.3 GPA/920 SAT--September retest
