The attention is starting to increase for Rolandas Breland of Denmark Olar. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder had 153 tackles, three sacks, one interception, and four fumble recoveries during his junior prep campaign. On offense he caught 15 passes for 300 yards and had four touchdowns. He was named to the All-Area team as a defensive end (First team) and also as a tight end. (Second team) Breland spoke about his exploits on the field.
"I try to make things happen. I make good blocks, and when they throw (me) the ball, I catch it," he said. "I can get to the quarterback, get the sack or make him throw a bad pass (on the defensive side of the ball)."
Breland doesn't only do it on the field, but he also does it in the classroom. He has a 3.9 grade point average and scored a 940 on the SAT.
Breland is receiving interest from South Carolina, Duke, Virginia, Clemson, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland, East Carolina, Furman, and Georgia Southern. Duke is recruiting him the hardest and he feels they could offer soon. He has a 'top three' and he shared with us here at GamecockInsider.com what he liked about each.
Virginia: "Their program is up and coming. They have a bunch of talent. Their coaches are real good and they put players in the NFL."
Georgia: "I would like to go there. I've talked to my recruiter (John Fabris) a couple of times. If we (Devin Kearse) went to school together, we would go to Georgia."
South Carolina: "I think USC is on the verge. (of offering) USC isn't too far away from home, I wouldn't get homesick there. I like coach (Lou) Holtz. He's a cool guy."
Will distance play a factor in which college Breland decides on?
"I don't want to be too far away from home. I would go to Florida and maybe as far as Virginia."
Breland will attend summer football camps at South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and Duke.
