Trying to beat Dallas (Texas) Skyline defensive back Roderick Rollins deep is something teams learned not to do last year during his junior season.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound player spent time at cornerback but his natural ability will allow him to play at safety too during his senior year. Apparently, his versatility and athleticism is not hidden anymore. Coach Derrick Roberson says the recent flood of offers is no surprise.
"Well he's up to eight offers now," Roberson said. "He's got Baylor, Kansas, TCU, Tulsa, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State, and Boston College. It's expected because he's a good player and it's only been a matter of time with him."
"After Baylor and Kansas offered it's kind of snowballed into two offers a week."
Oklahoma State is a team that is actively pursuing Rollins and will make a stop down at the high school next week. Roberson says his instincts and ability is what's gathered the interest from a national list of schools.
"He's a guy that's above 6-foot-1, but you're not going to throw the fade on him either," Roberson said. "At the same time he is aggressive with the run too."
Skyline is also the home to dual-threat quarterback prospect Anthony Norice who is receiving Big 12 interest as well.
"Our quarterback Anthony is a good player and a lot of people really like him," Roberson said. "Kansas State is really interested in him right now so it's a good year for these guys."
