Rosene high on Notre Dame
Sophomore offensive tackle Reno Rosene was offered by Notre Dame last spring as a freshman, and he's hopeful he'll get to visit the Irish for a second time this summer. "I think my dad and I are planning on taking 10-day trip to the Midwest," Rosene said. "Nothing is planned yet, but it's possible we could hit Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan State, Michigan, and Notre Dame. I can make it pretty easily to USC and UCLA, so I saw those schools this spring. I may camp at USC, but I'm not sure yet. I almost may camp at Notre Dame, and I'll know for sure within the next week or two." Already,6-foot-7, 300-pounds Rosene says he's working on getting more explosive before his junior year starts. "Mostly, I'm working on my quickness and my blocking and my explosiveness off the ball," Rosene said. "I think I'm a lot more aggressive than most guys my age and I have no problem getting low. Sometimes it's hard to get over that hump of being a mean lineman on the field, but I have no problem with it." Rosene says he has a lot of respect for Notre Dame assistant, Mike Denbrock. "This spring, Coach Denbrock came to my school, but I wasn't there that day because I was sick," Rosene said. "Coach Denbrock is a great coach and he really knows what he's talking about." Though he doesn't plan to decide for a while, Rosene said he could see himself attending Notre Dame. "I want a place where I feel at home, just like I did at Notre Dame," Rosene said. "Notre Dame has the nicest campus that I've seen and their fans love their teams there. They have great academics and networking at Notre Dame, and they set you up for a great job. I know they graduate almost 100 percent of their players."
