Matt Rolin will bring a lot of talent with him to the college level. South Carolina may just be that team for Rolin in the future.
Rolin is a high value recruit with a final five schools of USC, Virginia Tech, Florida, Georgia and Florida State. Make no mistake though, this is a USC/Virginia Tech battle with the Gamecocks way out front. The Gamecocks have the family aspect working in their favor with several family members who attended USC and some that still live in Columbia.
He also seems to love the campus, coaches, facilities and everything else South Carolina has to offer. Rolin plans to visit South Carolina Memorial Day weekend and there's a chance he could commit to South Carolina. If he doesn't, look for a public commitment to possibly come in early July when he attends The Opening in Oregon.
This is a player that will make an immediate impact at linebacker with athletic ability, big hitting skills and intelligence.
South Carolina needs to revamp the linebacker group and Rolin is the answer for the future.
