Pete Rolf Profile

He has offers from Oregon, Ball State, Buffalo, Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan and Akron. The Ducks are his favorite and lead slightly over Purdue, Ohio State, Michigan and UCLA.

"I grew up in Salt Lake City, but have family in Oregon," Rolf said. "I like the program and they seem to go to a good bowl game every year. I love how they are sponsored by Nike too."

Rolf doesn't have any official visits scheduled, but plans to attend the Penn State/Purdue game on October 29.

"Purdue and Michigan are recruiting me pretty hard," Rolf said. "I like Purdue because they are only about three hours away and I love the Big Ten. Plus, I think Purdue will surprise a lot of people this year. Michigan will probably be better this season, of course, every team will have to look out for Ohio State."

Rolf also has family in the Los Angeles area and says that's the main reason he likes UCLA. "I like the idea of being around family," Rolf said. "Plus, I really like the campus and area they're in."

He says that he prefers a city environment, but "I'll go wherever I feel comfortable."

He reports a 3.3 GPA and a 17 ACT score.
