Roddick has offers from OregonCalifornia and Colorado but a few more Pac-12 schools and a couple of schools across the country are keeping tabs on him.

"Oregon, Colorado and Cal are the schools who've offered but I'm hearing mostly from other Pac-12 schools too like UCLAWashington and Washington State and then a little from Boston College and Auburn," said Roddick.  "And I've talked with Stanford a couple of times, they're interested, but they have to see my SAT scores.  I'm really interested in them."

The three schools that have offered him are recruiting him the hardest right now.

"Coach (Brandon) Jones at Cal is recruiting me and Coach (Steve) Greatwood is recruiting me at Oregon and then at Colorado it is Coach (Gary) Bernardi recruiting me," said Roddick.

Roddick is also talking with UCLA, with Marques Tuiasosopo recruiting him after first watching him when he was at USC as well as offensive line coach Adrian Klemm.

"UCLA is a school I like because they have prestigious academics and football and that education and degree can take me where football can't," said Roddick.  "Coach Tui first met me when he was at USC but he stayed in touch with me at UCLA.  I'm going to take a visit down there for spring ball."

Roddick said most of the attention is coming as a guard but he's not opposed to playing tackle in college.

"If I played tackle in college, it would be at right tackle, on the run side, because my run step is better than my pass," said Roddick.  "Personally, I like guard because it's the nastiest position out there. At tackle, you're on an island more, so guard would be my preference.  But ultimately, it goes down to which position will benefit the team and bring the most success.  That is my main goal."

Roddick plans to camp at the B2G Elite Camp in June and potentially The Opening Oakland regional in May.

Academically, Roddick has a 3.5 and will take the SAT and ACT later in the spring.
