Rolling into Tally Town

The No.1 player in the country Myron Rolle took his official visit to Florida State over the weekend. Despite watching the Seminoles lose, a good time was had by the five-star Nole commitment.

"I had a good time," Rolle said. "I got to hang out with Carlos Brown. He's a great guy and I don't want to speak for him but I think Florida State made a great impression on him. I exchanged phone numbers with him."

Rolle was impressed with some of his future teammates who held the Pack to just 21 points Saturday afternoon.

"(Andre) Fluellen was impressive," he said. "Ernie Sims played great. He only had two minuses. I thought the secondary played well for the most part. They seemed to achieve most of their goals."

The future Seminole strong-safety is a student of the game and the highlight of his visit was to sit in with the defensive coaches on Sunday evening while they graded the game.

"I sat in with all the defensive coaches while they graded the game and I learned a lot from their perspective," he said. "I feel I can come in next year and earn some playing time. It's not in my nature to slack off. Antonio (Cromartie) told me that they can use my help."

Rolle has taken Chad Roark's spot as the Seminoles top player recruiter. He's been in touch with several players considering the Garnet & Gold.

"I still talk with C.J. (Spiller) and I would like to be his roommate in college," he said. "He's great person and a Christian. I talk with A.J. Wallace as much as possible. I also talk with Vidal Hazelton. He's trying to set up a visit to Florida State. While I was in Tallahassee, one of the coaches handed me the phone to talk with Justin Mincey."

Rolle missed the first three games of the season due to a nagging injury and he's a victim of his own success.

"I don't get the ball thrown to my side of the field much and teams are running away from my side," he said. "Right now, I have 56 tackles and nine tackles for a loss in five games."

The New Jersey standout will participate in the Army All-American game in early January and then start his Seminole career by enrolling in college on January 9th.
