UNC picks up 2004 QB commitment

North Carolina picked up a commitment from a quarterback a bit off the radar in the estimation of some football observers.

That said, there is obviously a live arm attached to this left-handed pitcher, who is projected to be a high-round baseball pick.

"I committed to North Carolina, and the plan is to play football," says Michael Rozier, a 6-foot-5, 205 quarterback with major league potential. "The plan is to go to college before I go pro, and that is something I would like to do."

However, there is a threshold to what a talent like Rozier can handle as far as his draft status, but the cutoff point is a bit high.

"I think the only way I would not go to college is if I went in the first round I have not spoken with the scouts that much, but I hear first or second round usually."

On the football field, Rozier has really come alive under the teaching of his father and head football coach at Henry County High School, Mike Rozier Sr. Last season Rozier threw for over 1300 yards as a junior and named to the All-Region team. He caught the eye of several schools, including both instate schools. However after a recent visit, Rozier committed to North Carolina.

"I took an unofficial visit over the weekend, and really felt comfortable there. I plan to go back for an official visit at some point."
