Southern Miss has its QB of the future in Marcelo Rodriguez of Colombus HS in Miami.
After a tremendous weekend visit to Southern Miss where he landed an offer after camp, Rodriguez said he is ready to take the next step and commit to USM.
"First of all I loved their campus and facilities," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"The people at Southern Miss were so welcoming and nice, and I just loved the coaching staff too. The type of offense they run is something I love and when I was there I could just really see myself being there for 4 years."
Rodriguez had a strong showing at the Southern Miss elite camp, and earned an offer right after the weekend. He also toured the campus for a few days and came away completely blown away by what he saw there.
Now, he's going to hit a few more camps before moving ahead to his senior season.
"It feels awesome because now I can focus on my senior season and help my team out in the best way I can, and focus on competing for a state championship," he added.
Rodriguez is the 2nd commitment today for Southern Miss football, certainly a big day for the Golden Eagles!
