Rolle Comes Away Impressed with UF and FSU

Today, Renegade caught up with the No. 1 player in the country who just finished his official visits to both Florida and Florida State. The five-star standout will make his decision early in September. Did either school make an impression?

"Both school really brought it and my trips were outstanding," Myron Rolle of Princeton (NJ) The Hun School said. "My Florida State visit was longer."

In Tallahassee, Rolle toured the medical school, met with all the coaches and a lot of the players.

"Lorenzo Booker is my dog," he said. "He's such a good guy. He's from California and he made me laugh. He's always smiling and I came away loving him even more. Buster Davis was the funniest guy there. He sat there telling jokes around the table. That guy is a comedian."

Like all school, the New Jersey star got to sit down with coaches and players and watch film.

"Florida State sat down and showed me how they would use me as a Rover," he said. "Sometimes I would line up against the slot guy and cover. Another time I would drop back and cover the deep third of the field. I also could line up as Sam linebacker with Ernie Sims on the edge. I learned the most from Antonio Cromartie. He showed me how he picks up tendencies of wide receivers. He also showed how to identify certain routes."

The 6-2, 210 pound defensive back wants to eventually become a medical doctor and he got the chance to tour the medical facility.

"My goal is to graduate college and then play professional football," he said. "After pro football, I want to enter medical school. I want to attend a medical program of the school that I got my undergraduate from because I would have already been settled in there. One advantage Florida State has is that they are new medical school with cutting-edge technology."

At the end of his trip to Tallahassee, he got to meet with Coach Bobby Bowden and he came away quite impressed.

"Talking with Coach Bowden was such a treat," he said. "He's been around the block a few times. He's almost an iconic figure."

On Saturday evening Rolle left the campus of Florida State and he headed to Gainesville for an unofficial visit with Florida.

"I got there around 7:00 PM because my visit to Florida State ran long," he said. "I got met by the entire coaching staff. I also met most of the players and I got to meet several doctor and I actually got to perform CPR on a dummy through a computer."

Rolle was also impressed with the players at Florida.

"I really liked Brandon Siler and Dee Webb," he said. "They are great players along with great people. I called them afterwards to thank them for showing me around."

The All-American watched film and he showed how he would fit in at Florida.

"I watched a highlight tape and it had an introduction of "Rolle Out" which was cool," he said. "They showed me it would be a good year to be a cornerback."
