Chisholm close to landing first D-I offer

Charlotte (N.C.) Independence running back Roderick Chisholm is on the verge of his first Division I offer. Rivals caught up with the 5-foot-9, 175-pounder to find out who is considering offering and if he has any leaders.
"Recruiting is going well," he said. "I've talked to Illinois and they said supposedly the offer is in the mail. I don't know about that yet, I guess I just have to wait and see. Once the NCAA clears me I think I am looking at taking an official there.
"I'm also talking to JMU, Rutgers, Nebraska and Northwestern. They are all asking for tapes and I'm trying to send them out. I think some of those schools may offer too."

With a variety of schools looking, does anyone stand out to the Carolina tailback?
"I'm not sure," he said. "I just want to get the season over with first and not stress out over recruiting."
Chisholm went on to discuss what he wants in a school.
"The graduation rate is important. I want to see how they can help as an athlete and student. I'm looking to be a filmmaker so that'll be big."
Meanwhile, Chisholm has played well this season for his team.
"Last week I had 276-yards rushing and four touchdowns," he said. "I've got about 800-yards rushing and 19-total touchdowns.
"I'm having a good season and I'm trying my hardest like all of our seniors. I think I've gotten quicker and a lot faster. I've also improved my strength a lot, but there's always room for improvement."
