2018 WR Zion Roland Takes a Step Back, De-Commits From Louisville

Zion Roland, a wide receiver who is equipped with roughly 20 offers, is now back on the market after de-committing from Louisville on Thursday

Zion Roland, a dual-sport standout who is labeled as a three-star receiver on Scout, has opted to take a step back by removing himself from Louisville's recruiting class on Thursday.

The 2018 prospect at St. Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut had been committed to play both football and baseball, and is now looking for a new landing spot with 17 scholarship offers to choose from.

"I want to go into my senior year with options so I can make the right decision for the next three years or so of my life."


In order, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Roland says he now has a top six of South FloridaLouisvilleUCFIowa StateToledo and Syracuse.
