Where do Noles Stand with Top OT?
"I don't have an offer from Florida State yet," Tampa Jefferson left tackle Daron Rose said. "I am getting a lot of mail from them though. The offensive coordinator at my school has ties to Florida State and he talks with them all the time. My coach was told that they plan on heavily recruiting me."
Where do the Noles stand on his list of the 6-foot-5 and 310 pound standout?
"The only school that I'm serious about now is Duke," he said. "I'm considering about 15 other schools and Florida State is one of them. I'm aware that they graduated two tackles that will be drafted into the NFL and that they signed only one lineman this past year. I'm also aware that they are looking to sign several linemen this year."
After the May evaluation is finished, Rose plans on narrowing his list to three top schools.
His three biggest factors in making a decision on a school will be academics, coaching and overall atmosphere.
"Playing time will also be a factor," he said. "I would prefer to play in my freshman year and I definitely want to play by my sophomore year."
His team attempted over 230 passes last season and Rose didn't allow a single sack. He had over 100 pancake blocks, averaging about one every three running plays.
"I'm agile and have quick feet. I can stop the rush and get out well laterally. I'm really athletic and smart and can pick up on the tendencies of the defense," said Rose. "I want to work on staying low and improve my run blocking."
Rose is an excellent student who carries a 3.3 grade point average and a 920 SAT test score.
