Archer Earns His Third Offer

Rodrick Archer, an impressive 2015 athlete from Plantation (Fla.) South High School, recently picked up an instate offer from South Florida and USFNation.com caught up with the defensive stud for his reaction.

Measuring in at a chiseled 6-foot-2, 200-pounds, Rodrick Archer is physical as a linebacker, but also has the speed, agility and size for a primetime safety prospect. The South Plantation standout has recorded gaudy numbers all throughout the year on the defensive side of the ball.

Archer leads the Paladins on the year with 88 tackles, three fumbles recoveries, two forced fumbles, three sacks, eight tackles for loss, and an interception.

Entering the week with scholarship offers from UCF and Cincinnati, Archer collected his third offer on Friday from South Florida when he received a special visit from the Bulls' defensive mastermind, Chuck Bresnahan.

"Well, coach Chuck came in with a great attitude towards me and told me they've been watching me since the USF camp," Archer said. "He told me I could fit into there program perfectly because of the fact I'm big and fast."

While many are looking for playing time in a school, Archer's seeking for comfort in his future crash pad for his four years of college.

"Dorms will play a big part in my recruiting," Archer said. "I feel like a lot of athletes from South Florida are leaving college because they become homesick. I just want to hang out or go to my room after a along day of workouts and school. Hard work will handle school and playing time by itself.

The all-around athlete is taking his time in the recruiting process and says no school is standing above others.

"Well, as of right now there's no leaders," Archer said. "I'm still waiting to see who else is interested in me."

The Broward County star plans to visit Florida State this Saturday for when they host Syracuse, as well as UCF when they host South Florida on Nov. 29.
