Focus '08: LB Tarik Rollins

Tarik Rollins is an athlete who has the ability to play a number of positions. At the Miami Nike Combine at 4.7 in the 40, 4.16 in the shuttle; he had 21 bench reps, and a 36-inch vertical. These numbers have caught the attention of a number of schools.

Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna is where you will find top linebacker Tarik Rollins, who at 6-foot-2 and 200-pounds has the tools college coaches look for in a defensive player.

Rollins was timed at the Miami Nike Combine at 4.7 in the 40, 4.16 in the shuttle; he had 21 bench reps, and a 36-inch vertical.

I recently had the opportunity to see Rollins play in a 7-on-7 setting. He moved extremely well and broke down rather fast when the ball was thrown to receivers coming out of the backfield Rollins had a very impressive junior season compiling 83 tackles and 6 interceptions and 7 sacks.

Chaminade-Madonna Head Coach Mark Guandolo had this to say about Rollins, “Tarik is a gamer who is very coachable and has a high football I.Q. I look for him to do big things at a major D-1 school.” After speaking with Tarik, one could add that he has a very high IQ in general. Mannerly and well spoken, he epitomizes the Jekyl and Hyde off-the-field-gentleman, on-the-field-monster that made the Ronnie Lotts, Walter Paytons, and Mike Singletarys great.

When asked Rollins what preparations he will make for his upcoming senior season; “ I plan on working out a lot and taking unofficial visits with my family as well as attending some camps. It might sound like a cliché, but I’m really serious about how strong the academic programs are at any school I would consider playing for.”

Some of the schools showing interest in Rollins are: Rutgers, Boston College, Cincinnati, South Florida, Iowa State, and Baylor. He has an early offer from Ole Miss.
