Briar Woods High (Ashburn, Va.) linebacker Matt Rolin (6'4/205) spent his spring break on the road. During the past week, the four-star prospect visited Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, and South Carolina. Over the past month, Rolin has picked up scholarship offers from Colorado, Duke, Georgia, Maryland, Ole Miss, South Carolina, and Ohio State. Scout's No. 21 outside linebacker has 19 offers.

Jordan Starnes (6'3/225) of South Stanly High (Norwood, N.C) is a prospect whose stock is rising. He already has offers from North Carolina and Georgia Tech. Duke, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina State are also showing a significant amount of interest in Starnes. Earlier this week, Pittsburgh reached out to the talented linebacker. He believes his next offer will come from either N.C. State or Virginia Tech. N.C. State and Georgia Tech are recruiting him the hardest. Those two schools, along with North Carolina, are the schools standing out for Starnes.

Champagnat Catholic School (Hialeah, Fla.) athlete Charles Williams (6'2/180) recently picked up offers from Vanderbilt, Texas Tech, and West Virginia. He has 12 offers. Williams will trim his list to five this summer and probably make a decision before the season begins.

Millbrook High (Raleigh, N.C.) wide receiver Corey Cooper (6'/185) picked up offer No. 12 on Wednesday from Washington State. Cooper, who visited South Carolina last weekend, recently named the Gamecocks as his leader.

Mount Tabor High (Winston-Salem, N.C.) tight end Lucas Wilson (6'5/225) picked up offer No. 5 on Wednesday from Central Florida, while on an unofficial visit. While in Florida, Wilson also went to USF, who has also offered. The Spartans' standout also has offers from East Carolina, N.C. State, and Wake Forest. Last season he made a smooth transition from wide receiver to tight end. He has a tremendous upside and should continue to add offers throughout the spring.

Keeon Johnson (6'3/200) is not ready to name a leader; however he said North Carolina (offer), Virginia (offer), Notre Dame (offer), and Clemson are the schools standing out. The A.L. Brown High (Kannapolis, N.C.) standout's next trip will likely be to North Carolina April 14 for the Tar Heels' spring game. I have always thought that North Carolina is the team to beat, and I still believe that to be the case.

Salem High (Virginia Beach, Va.) wide receiver Kwamane Bowens (6'2/185) will head to Pittsburgh on April 14. Bowens, one of the top wide receivers in Virginia, has offers from Boston College, East Carolina, Illinois, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Virginia Tech.

Clemson offered Crest High (Shelby, N.C.) defensive end Dane Rogers (6'3/235) back in February. The Tigers are now the leader for Scout's No. 36 defensive end. Tennessee, North Carolina, Rutgers, and North Carolina State have also offered.

Bamberg-Ehrhardt High (Bamberg, S.C.) linebacker Kevin Crosby (6'3/225) is one of top 2014 prospects in the country. Recently, he added offers from USF and Kentucky. Last weekend, Crosby, who now has 23 offers, became the first player selected to participate in the 2014 US Army All-American Bowl.

Another one of the top sophomores in the country is Indian Trial High (Chesapeake, Va.) defensive tackle Andrew Brown (6'4/295). On Wednesday night, USF became school No. 8 to offer Brown. He also holds offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Indiana, James Madison, North Carolina, N.C. State, and Old Dominion.
