Rollins' stock is rising

Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna linebacker Tarik Rollins has seen his stock increase over the course of the last couple months, with several more teams jumping on board with scholarship offers for him.

Rollins, who bench presses 320 pounds, likes several aspects of the Gamecock program.

"Them having one of the best coaches in college football is a big plus for them," he said. "They run an aggressive defense, and that's the way I like to play.

He's excited about getting me up there for camp this summer."
