Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep offensive tackle Brian Roche took his fourth official visit this past weekend, to Florida, and will finish the recruiting process off at Notre Dame this upcoming weekend. Where does his recruiting stand?
"Florida was a good visit, I liked it all around," said the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder. "I liked coach Meyer, he seems like a player's coach and I was hosted by Phil Trautwein, who's from New Jersey. I hung out mostly with Tate Casey as well."
Roche said that Florida is looking at him as a center.

"That's new, but tackles and centers always get drafted and I'd probably have a chance to play earlier that way," he said. "That doesn't really change anything for me."
The New Jersey standout has visited Michigan State, Louisville, NC State and Florida and has a trip with Notre Dame next.
"I like coach Weis, he's about as confident as you can get in a coach," he said. "I want to be able to do things in college other than football, so I'll be looking to see what kind of social life there is at Notre Dame. After my visit, I'll announce on Signing Day. I don't have a leader and all the schools I've visited are in the mix."
