Myron Rolle Rocks On/Off Field:ACTION PHOTOS ADDED

Myron Rolle (from The Hun School in Princeton, New Jersey) is a man among boys. Compared to the other kids in attendance, he looks and acts like he's 2 to 3-years older -- both on the field and off. A consensus Top 25 Junior, some consider him to be the top kid in the class.

Defensive back Myron Rolle from Princeton, N.J. works out Sunday at the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine.
GoBlueWolverine knew that Rolle was an attendee at the Michigan Camp for a day last summer, so we chatted with the brilliant young gentleman several times over the two days of the combine (there was considerable 'down time' during the combine for chatting, etc.).

Rolle worked out as a safety at the Michigan Camp last summer and is considered a top safety prospect. But -- surprise -- even though he told us, "I'm 6-2, 205 lbs.," he added, "I want to play cornerback in college." Myron decided not do the testing on Sat,. night of the Combine, so he has no 40-yard dash time, but last spring he ran a 4.5 in a Nike Combine (and had a 34.5 inch vertical jump) and he definitely ran through the DB drills like a 4.5 guy.

As a prospect, it is almost hard to give a scouting report on Rolle, because he just looks like a college player working out with boys. He spent a lot of his time giving tips to other DB's on how to do the drills, and when it was his turn he simply dominated -- speed, strength, smarts, leadership -- the mature young man has the whole package.

As we said, Rolle spent a day at the Michigan Camp this past summer, and yesterday he volunteered to GoBlueWolverine his impression of Michigan defensive backs coach Ron English. "I like Coach English a lot; I like how he coaches. He's a technician ... some of the drills he showed me last summer at the Michigan Camp I'm still using to improve myself."

Rolle said Michigan hasn't been a stranger at his school this winter. "Coach English hasn't been by my school yet but he is coming soon. Coach Sheridan (who recruits the Northeast for Michigan) has been in the school a lot of times. And Coach Carr has been to the school as well."

Rolle participates in drills Sunday at the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine. Held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, the combine attracted over 400 of the top juniors in the country.
Whoever lands Rolle will be getting a top student, and - surprise No. 2 - will be getting him early. "I'm going to graduate in January. I'm on track to graduate, and won't have to go to school this summer or anything. I have a 4.0 GPA and I'm taking four AP courses this fall: calculus, biology, art history and Spanish."

And who is most likely to land Rolle' services? He told us he has over 30 scholarship offers, but that, "Michigan, Florida State and Virginia are recruiting me the hardest."

The Hun school is an elite boarding school and the alma mater of former Michigan OL signee Jeff Zuttah (who was a 'medical' at U-M and transferred to Stanford where he hoped he would be allowed to continue playing. Myron is friends with Zuttah and told us, "Jeff is still at Stanford, but he had to stop playing football there too."
Michigan will definitely be a strong 'player' in the recruiting sweepstakes for Rolle. Is he a college cornerback? He looks like a proto-type safety, but we don't doubt his ability to accomplish anything he puts his mind to (remember -- Charles Woodson was a RB, not a CB, in high school ...).
