Zeke Rozier's recruiting process is picking up steam after his sparkling performance in 2006. Rozier rushed for more than 2000 yards and scored 19 touchdowns as a senior running back at Bleckley County. He led the Royals to an (8-5) record and their first playoff win since 1977.
"We beat a lot of teams that we wasn't suppose to beat," said Rozier. "It was really great to watch the fans and to see the fans really get into it. It was fun. They did special things for us every week. They went to all the games and even decorated our locker room."
The 6-foot-0, 197-pound RB/OLB prospect has offers from Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, and Georgia Southern. Some schools are recruiting him as an outside linebacker and some as a running back.
"I've talked to Georgia Southern head coach (Brian) Van Gorder," Rozier said. He came to the school and talked to me. I like coach Van Gorder. I enjoyed talking to him. He said I could play wherever I wanted to play for them. It was pretty much up to me. We set up my official visit for next weekend, Jan. 12th."
"The Middle Tennessee State recruiting coach calls me and sends me letters," Rozier said. "I'll probably visit them sometime in late January."
Rozier told Scout.com that Kentucky was at the top of his list.
"I guess I'm sort of leaning toward Kentucky." he said. "I think that it would be a good place for me to go and play. I like their program and It would be great to play in the SEC. It's a good opportunity for me and I'm looking at them pretty hard."
Rozier was a honorable mention All-State, All-Middle Georgia and two-time All-Region selection. He also played in the GACA North-South All-Star Game.
"It was an honor just to be selected. There was a lot of good players that didn't get selected, so I was very happy to be able to play in the game. It was a good experience and I had a great time hanging out with some of the players like Daquan Bembry, Deonte Jordan, Thomas Barnes, Jacobi Rodriquez and Allen Bailey."
