Rolin chose South Carolina over Florida State and Virginia Tech.
“I did a lot of thinking over the last few weeks,” Rolin told ESPN RecruitingNation via text message. “In the end it came down to South Carolina, (Virginia Tech) and FSU. I had the gut feeling that South Carolina was the place for me. So I took this visit just to make sure it was right. And it was! I love everything about South Carolina and having my whole family here makes me feel really comfortable coming here!!”
Rolin is ranked the nation’s eighth-best outside linebacker and No. 104 player in the nation by ESPNU.
