Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep offensive tackle Brian Roche has made his decision. Roche, who boasts over thirty scholarship offers, narrowed his list to two schools last week. Did he pick Rutgers or Miami?
"I decided yesterday to commit to Rutgers. I just felt more comfortable there and I like the direction on the in-state program," said the 6-foot-5, 282-pound tackle who runs the 40-yard dash in 5.0 seconds.
Roche made his decision shortly after returning from a visit to the other finalist, Miami.
"Miami is a great school and I was impressed with my visit there. The visit actually made my decision to attend Rutgers easier. Miami is known for All-Americans, National Championships, and first round draft picks. I think it would be special to build that tradition at Rutgers. Coach Schiano is building that type of program at Rutgers and it is something that I want to be a part of."
Roche has over 30 scholarship offers including Boston College, Virginia, North Carolina, Stanford, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma among others.
