Kansas City, MO
|The big name four-year schools have started knocking on
Rose's door already.
"Arizona has already offered," said Rose who will graduate in December. "BYU, Arizona State, and Oregon have written. And Nebraska came by for a visit."
It's not surprising that Rose is getting so much early attention since four-year schools are known to comb the JC ranks for top-flight defensive linemen every year. Not only does Rose have the size that scouts covet, he also has the athleticism.
"I'm moving to defensive end this year," said Rose. "I'm a good pass rusher and can stop the run, too. They say I have good lateral movement," he added.
A native of Missouri, Rose first attended Coffeyville in 2000, where he redshirted as an offensive lineman. He felt his future was on defense, which is spurred him to transfer to Scottsdale.
A good move? Perhaps so. Last year at Scottsdale he recorded a decent season with approximately six sacks, three blocked field goals, two fumble recoveries, and about thirty tackles from his defensive tackle spot.
Those are great numbers and so it's no surprise that Rose will be watched closely this fall.
Rose plans to hit the weights hard in the off-season in order to stay healthy and make the best impression he can make during the fall. He's also hitting the books to ensure that he's ready to transfer in December.
One thing he'll be looking for in a future college is team unity.
"I want a football team that is like a family. That's how it is here at Scottsdale," said Rose.
Whichever school lands his signature will get him for only two seasons as his redshirt season is gone. You always hear that speed can't be taught. Neither can this combination of size and athleticism.
This Rose Ready to Bloom
