Noles Visit Top OL Target

This week the Seminole coaches paid an in-home visit to one their top offensive line targets. How did it go for the 6-foot-5 and 310 pound standout from Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson?

"Coach Dickey and McHale stopped by for an in-home visit and it went well," Daron Rose said. "They spent a lot of time talking to my parents.

Seminole offensive line coach Mark McHale had pretty high praise for the Scout.com four-star tackle.

"He told me that I had a few things to work on but I was pretty close to being game-ready for college," he said. "Coach McHale is a teacher and he can help me get to the next level."

Rose, who hasn't allowed a quarterback sacks in two years, contributes his success to his coaching and work ethic.

"My coach played for the Buccaneers and he really has helped out my game," he said. "I feel my over all game is pretty good because of my quick feet. I do whatever it takes. I watch a lot of film and I will stay after practice to work on stuff."

Last weekend, Rose was able to catch some of the ACC Championship where the Noles came out on top.

"It was a great victory for Florida State," he said. "A lot of folks say they are down but the team showed that they are still on the up and up."

The Jefferson standout has been selected to play in the Florida-California All-Star game.

Rose has benched pressed as much as 360 pounds to go along with a squat of 500 pounds.
