Matt Rotheram is an offensive tackle from North Olmsted High School in North Olmsted, Ohio. The 6-6 and 295 pounder is just a junior in high school, but he has already picked up his first scholarship offer and is getting interest from several Division I programs throughout the country.

"I am hearing from Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Notre Dame, Kansas, Iowa State, Michigan State, Western Michigan, Toledo, Bowling Green, Kent State, Ohio, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Syracuse, North Carolina State, Duke, Maryland, Buffalo, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCONN, Akron, Northwestern, and Central Michigan," Rotheram recently told Rocket Digest.

He seems to be hearing the most from Toledo, Ohio University, and Kent State. In fact, Matt recently received his first offer from Toledo.

Matt Campbell is recruiting Rotheram for the Rockets. "He also recruited me when he was at BG," said Rotheram. "As far as Coach Campbell, I am very impressed. I got a chance to watch him in action when I visited BG this past season. I would love to play for a coach like Campbell."

While Rotheram cannot make it to Toledo's junior day, he says that he is planning a visit to Toledo in the next month or so.

In the classroom, Matt has a 2.85 GPA and scored a 20 the first time he took his ACT. He also plans on retaking the ACT this spring.

He still has a lot of time to figure out where he wants to go to college, but he does have an idea of when he would like to make his decision. "I would like to commit before my senior season," Rotheram said. "But, if I need more time I wll wait."
