The Florida Gators were also very interested in Rolle's talents and kept open the possibility that they may extend him a last second scholarship offer, but in the end, Rolle honored his word and stuck with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Rolle is a nasty player on defense, who is always around the ball, and Immokalee Head Coach John Weber believes that tenacity combined with a great work ethic will set him apart on the collegiate level.
"He is right at the top of my list of the best I have ever coached," Weber explained. "He definitely has the highest motor of anybody I have ever coached. He does not ever shut down, ever."
"I think that he will be a linebacker. There is no doubt that he has the work ethic to succeed. Brian is just a great hard working player."
"I'm all about making plays," Rolle added. "I'm always around the ball. I've always worked real hard for results."
As a senior, Rolle racked up 125 tackles on defense and added over 900 yards rushing on offense as well to earn Southwest Florida's Defensive Player of the Year honors.
After a leading a dominating defense to a 16-3 victory in the Florida Athletic Coaches Association North-South All-Star Game at Bryant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla., a game that features some of the "Sunshine States" best talents, Rolle was named as the South's Most Valuable Player.
