More on Myron Rolle

Myron Rolle, a 6-foot-3, 201 pound strong running back has already received major attention from many of the top programs in the country including Oklahoma, Purdue, Duke, Florida State, and Rutgers. Now he's hearing from Syracuse, Tennessee, and Notre Dame and is eagerly awaiting any new suitors to emerge.

"All the programs have sent letters to school that basically introduce themselves and their programs. We're also sending out tapes to a number of schools that I want to learn more about. I know that Duke will definitely be on that list."

The high national interest has obviously begun to gather steam over the last few weeks, despite The Peddie School's struggles on the field.

"Right now we are really struggling," said Rolle. "It seems we are undermanned and overmatched each time out. We're competing, but we're 0-4 on the season."

Indeed the sophomore standout's assessment is right on target. Despite being the featured tailback, Rolle is bigger and stronger than each of his lineman, rendering run blocking nearly ineffective. Still he's managed to use his 4.4 speed to accumulate 428 yards on the ground along with each of his team's scores on the season, a total of just three.

With a struggling offensive unit, Peddie has given Rolle a chance to really showcase his skill set on the defensive side of that ball at the strong safety position. Through four games Rolle has recorded 47.5 tackles, 1 pass deflection, and has blocked a field goal attempt. In the most recent contest he recorded a season high 20 tackles.

Off the field Rolle will begin taking an unofficial visit to Oklahoma on November 15th to watch the Sooners compete with
Baylor. He's also scheduled to take the SAT soon for the first time to see where he stands on the standardized test.

In the classroom he already owns a 4.0 GPA and has been elected president of several in school organizations.
