Country's No. 1 Player is Ready for Trip to FSU

The Scout.com No.1 student/athlete is the country is down to Miami, Florida State, Florida, Michigan and Oklahoma. On August 5th, the Seminoles will get an opportunity to host him on official visit.

Rolle, who has been timed in the 100-meter dash in 10.8 seconds, feels like he has the skills to line up at any secondary position. However, he doesn't have a preference. If he signs with the Noles, what plans do their coaches have in mind for him?

"Florida State is recruiting me as a strong-safety and they feel like I have the body type to make an impact there," he said. "They are low on the depth chart at that position."

The New Jersey standout will spend two days on his official visit at Florida State.

"On Friday, we'll concentrate on Football and on Thursday will focus on academics," he said. "I just got a call from someone at the school that is apart of the multi-culture pre medical department. I've also recently talked with Coach Lilly, Coach Andrews and Antonio Cromartie."

Rolle is very impressed with the Seminoles rich tradition of defensive backs.

"If I went to Florida State, I would be taught by probably the top secondary coach in the country," he said. "My brother said that Coach Andrews has coached eight All-Americans at Florida State."

After his trip to Tallahassee, the Rolle family will stop in Gainesville on the way back for another look at the campus of the University of Florida.

"Florida got in the race late but their recruiting effort has been very good," he said "They do a very good job of making players feel like they are wanted. I feel like their program is going in the right direction."

One of Rolle's goals in life is to become a medical doctor.

"I want to be an Urologist and I'm not sure if I want to go into surgery or the research part of things," he said. "Science is one of my best subjects and I really like studying thing like the nervous system."

Location and climate won't be factors in his decision process. The All-American comes from a very close, tight-knit family and his older brother will join him in college."

"My older brother is a student at St John's University and he will be joining me in school for post graduate," he said.

A decision on a school will be made by the end of August and Rolle will enroll at the school of his choice mid-term.

As a junior, he registered 83 tackles, six sacks and four interceptions sacks.
