Rosene loads up with offers

Reno Rosene has landed five new offers recently. Spring football has paid off for the massive offensive lineman from Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian.
Wisconsin, Duke, Nevada and Fresno State have offered and then Nebraska came through with its own offer on Tuesday morning. It's important to note this interview was conducted prior to the Huskers offer.
"Nevada was at the school and then three days later (Oaks Christian) coach (Bill) Redell told me to give them a call," Rosene said. "They never came in and actually watched.
"Fresno State was at the school and they offered. They ended up watching practice later in the week but they already offered.
"A week ago, Wisconsin had one of their guys out and he said he liked what he saw. If the o-line coach liked it, too, they would offer. The o-line coach came back this last week and he offered me right there."
The 6-foot-7, 345-pound four-star prospect had been offered by Duke for a while. He and his father took a visit to Durham recently and definitely liked it. The Blue Devils have moved near the top of his list alongside Vanderbilt and Arizona State. Nebraska could make a move up once Rosene learns more.
"I took a trip out to Duke," Rosene said. "That one was a while ago. Coach Redell told me to call them so I did and they offered me on the phone. My dad and I went out and we had a really good time.
"I definitely think Duke and Vanderbilt stand out as well as ASU. They came in a week ago and the coaches and I have been talking. They came out and watched practice so those are sticking out the most. I probably won't commit until the summer. That's what my family and I have agreed on. I'm still trying to figure it out."
Rosene has already been to Duke. A summer trip to Vanderbilt - it would be his first - could happen.
"They're both top 25 schools in the nation overall and they have great alumni," Rosene said. "I like how Duke's program has taken a big step in the last few years. When I was there, that's the place I felt everyone was a family. Everybody helps each other out and everyone is super nice.
"I haven't been to Vanderbilt yet but I might go there this summer because my grandfather lives in Bristol, Tennessee. I talked to the coaches out there and I like that it's in Nashville. That's a great city, they're in the SEC, so that's a great conference to show off your talent and abilities for after college."
