Rocky Hinds has all the physical tools needed to be a great player for any school. The 6-4, 210-pound quarterback hails from St. Bernard high school in Playa Del Ray, CA. He has a cannon for an arm and jets in his feet. Hinds recently ran a 4.47 at the Nike Camp and has a personal best of 10.4 in the 100 meters.
Hinds has offers from every school in the Pac 10 plus a few others and Notre Dame just recently threw their hat into the ring. "They offered me earlier this week. Fed Ex showed up at my house. It's great to get an offer from Notre Dame because they were the only school in my top four that hadn't offered me."
Hinds has been pretty solid on his top four for a while. "UCLA, USC, Washington and Notre Dame are my top four. People keep asking for a leader but they really are all about even right now."
Hinds said he has spoken to Notre Dame and came away impressed. "I like Notre Dame and I will take an official visit there. It's a great program with a lot of tradition. I was excited they offered me."
The star quarterback prospect says he will be attending the Elite 11 camp this summer. "They told me all I have left to do is to do an interview. I plan to go."
A decision will have to wait a while for Hinds. "I plan to take visits to my top four schools. I will try to take some during my season. I don't know when I will decide."
Comments. Hinds seemed happy with the offer from Notre Dame. The Irish must think very highly of Hinds to offer him. We likely won't know much about Hinds until he gets on campus but I expect him to visit.
