LB Albert Rocker planning to visit Louisville

Scout.com three-star linebacker Albert Rocker of Sparkman High School in Harvest, Alabama made an unofficial visit with Louisville in June and is in the process of scheduling an official date with the Cardinal program.

As a junior at Sparkman High School, in Harvest, Alabama, linebacker Albert Rocker drew All-Region, All-Metro and team Defensive MVP honors following a year that saw him record 83 tackles, 13 sacks, 9 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles and recovered 2 fumbles. Three games into his final year of prep ball the Scout.com three-star prospect is on pace to shatter his numbers from a year ago.

"My season is going extremely well," said the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Rocker. "We're going into our fourth game of the season and I already have 28 tackles and 11sacks."

Prior to the start of his senior year of school, Rocker kept busy making unofficial visits with many of the schools that started expressing interest following his strong outing at the Scout.com All-American Combine this past spring. Georgia Tech, Louisville, Purdue and Vanderbilt were a few of the schools that helped make up his preseason itinerary.

"I also plan on visiting Arkansas and Clemson soon," he said of his plans for additional unofficial visits. "I have an official visit with Purdue for October 20. We play on Thursday that week, so I'm going to fly up there on Friday. I know I'm taking three official visits for sure and two are still up for grabs. I know that I'll visit Purdue, Louisville and Georgia Tech for sure."

Included among those vying for the opportunity to bring Rocker in for an official visit are Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Memphis and Tennessee.

"I'm still wide open, but if I had to say that one is my favorite right now I'd have to say Georgia Tech," said Rocker, who has already made three trips to the Atlanta school. "That's only because I've visited there a few times and I've met with their coaches twice, so I'm most comfortable with them right now."

In addition to Louisville, Rocker also holds scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, Purdue, Troy and Vanderbilt.
