After a roller-coaster recruiting process through his senior year, two-star offensive lineman Donald Rocker has a new leader.

"I really like Western Kentucky," he said. "You could say they are my new leader."

Rocker was previously committed to Florida International, until the program made a coaching change.

"We all thought (Mario) Cristobal was doing really well," he said. "Even then though, it wasn't necessarily him getting fired, I decommitted because of the way they handled it.

"It took them so long to find another head coach, a lot of us commits had to start looking at other schools."

The 6-foot-4, 296 pound prospect also has an offer from Marshall, with strong interest coming in from Miami.

Rocker said he plans on visiting Western Kentucky on the weekend of Jan. 18, and could make a decision after that.

"If I don't make my decision after my official visit to Bowling Green, I'll wait until Signing Day (Feb. 6)," he said. "I might still take an official to FIU, but I'm not sure about that."

Rocker is the No. 147 ranked offensive tackle in the Scout.com Class of 2013 national rankings.

The Hilltoppers currently have 22 commitments in the Class of 2013, and are expecting several more between now and National Signing Day.
