2011 Hillcrest High LB Mike Rose has emerged as a player who is heading up the rankings as he's scored yet another scholarship offer. The latest offer comes from the Big East Conference.
"East Carolina just offered me," Rose told SCPrepNation.com.
After 2 1/2 seasons at defensive end for the Rams Rose moved to linebacker some last season and the results returned immediate dividends for the team. At 6'3 with track speed Rose was able to play in space and utilize that speed to shut the middle down against opposing squads. He also has a knack for making blocks on special teams.
One school in particular that we feel may be highly interested in that specific skill is Virginia Tech. Rose has sent his highlight film to the Hokies and we expect that recruitment to heat up soon as well.
