Roseboro discusses top six

Last night, Darian Roseboro named his top six schools. Following his announcement, the 2015 four-star Lincolnton (N.C.) defensive lineman spoke with

Darian Roseboro is down to six schools.

In no particular order, the 6-foot-3, 293-pound Roseboro has trimmed his list to Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, North Carolina, NC State and Tennessee.

“It was very tough to cut it down to six,” Roseboro said. “But it just came down to where I felt like I had the best relationships with the coaches and where I felt most comfortable.”

He gave a quick thought on each school.

Alabama: “(Linebackers) coach (Kevin) Steele is recruiting me and he’s really cool,” Roseboro said. “We talk almost every week and we’ve built a good relationship. I also like their tradition.”

Clemson: “I have a really good relationship with (defensive ends) coach (Marion) Hobby. He’s a pretty cool coach and we’ve been building a relationship since my sophomore season.”

Michigan: “I like the coaching staff. They’re all down to earth and I have a real good relationship with them. I also enjoyed being around the players when I visited and I like the environment.”

North Carolina: “I really like the fact that they were one of the first schools to offer me and I also like the fact that they are close to home.”

NC State: “I like the coaches and I also have a really good relationship with some of the players who have committed there.”

Tennessee: “They have a really good recruiting class and I like the direction that the coaches have the program headed."

Some people have speculated that Roseboro could stay close to home.

“It’s a possibility, but you never know,” he said. “It’s just going to come down to where I feel most comfortable and which school my family and I like the most.”

In regards to upcoming trips, Roseboro said he is unsure about where he will visit next.

Do not expect him to cut his list again before he makes his decision.

”I think I’m just going to leave it at six and pick from those schools,” Roseboro said. “They’re pretty much all even right now."

He will make his announcement on Aug. 29 at his school around 2:30 p.m.
