Rolle Likes What He Sees

Many people left the Horseshoe impressed on Saturday, one of them being Florida linebacker Brian Rolle. Could the Buckeyes grab this Florida prospect? The visit went a long way in possibly making that happen. Read on for more.

Immokalee (Fla.) linebacker Brian Rolle is rated as the No. 13 WLB in America by Scout.com and the No. 27 overall prospect in the state of Florida by the Orlando Sentinel's Bill Buchalter. Rolle (5-10, 210, 4.47) has offers from some of the nation's top programs, including LSU, Florida, Ohio State, and Wisconsin. With 120 tackles in just nine games during his junior year, Rolle has a reputation for being a playmaker.

So far in the recruiting season, Rolle, a relative of ex-Miami star and current Arizona Cardinals DB Antrel Rolle, has been on official visits to Iowa and Wisconsin and just wrapped up an official visit to Ohio State. He feels the trip to Columbus was his best one yet.

"It was the best visit so far," said Rolle. "I thought Florida-LSU was as good as it was going to get but this was better."

Rolle talked more about what he saw at OSU.

"I have never seen anything like that stadium on that night," Rolle said. "The coaches, the players, the atmosphere, it was all the best I have seen."

Rolle expects to make a decision soon and has two more visits to go.

"LSU and Florida are next," Rolle said. "I have already been to Wisconsin and Iowa. I will make my decision sometime in December."

Rolle has played some fullback for Immokalee but appears destined for linebacker in college.

"Everyone is recruiting me as an outside linebacker," Rolle said.
