Orlando (Fla.) Olympia wide receiver/athlete Marquise Rolle has an idea of what he wants in a college program.
"One of the factors will probably be school history," he said. "How well the program has been over the years is very important. Also, it depends on what my family thinks. My mom and my coach will play a big part in me making my decision."
While waiting on his first official scholarship offer, the 6-foot-3, 191-pounder has been getting hand-written letters from the Florida staff.
"They tell me to keep working," Rolle said. "They tell me to work hard to get bigger and stronger."
He also has received letters from Iowa, Louisville, Indiana, Georgia, Miami (Fla.), Army, Air Force, Boston College and Central Florida.
Rolle's dream school hasn't yet sent him a letter, but has requested his transcript.
"My dream school has always been Florida State," he said.
Rolle doesn't know if he will make it to any Junior Days or camps during the spring because it's track season for him. Rolle runs the 400 meters, the 4x100 relay and the 4x400 relay. His team came in fifth in the state in the 4x400 last season.
Rolle has good size and speed. He projects as a wide receiver and kick returner at the next level. Olympia High got him the ball in a number of ways last year, including reverses, pitches out of the backfield and short passes. He also has good hands, though his speed is his greatest asset.
"I'm a playmaker with good speed," Rolle said. "I am also dependable."
