Peter Rolf's uncle, defensive end Will Tukuafu from Mesa Community College, made a commitment to Oregon and Rolf says the Ducks are his top choice as well. He'll be visiting Eugene on January 6. In the meantime, Rolf is still awaiting an offer from Michigan.

Two-star linebacker Pete Rolf (6-4, 220, 4.65), from Piqua, Ohio, helped lead his team to a 13-2 record and the division II state championship. Piqua beat Columbus Pickerington Central 26-7. Rolf, ranked No. 66 by Scout.com, finished the year with 90 tackles, including18 for loss, six sacks and three interceptions.

Rolf said he favors Oregon slightly over Michigan, Purdue, Toledo and Akron. All of his favorites have offered except Michigan and Purdue--although he says that the Wolverines seem close to offering. "They sound really interested," Rolf said. "They offered me an official visit and were at my school last week. Coach (offensive coordinator) Mike DeBord said he'd come to one of my basketball games."

He plays forward for his basketball team, but only plans to pursue football in college. "Because we went so deep in the playoffs it pushed my schedule back," Rolf said. "Plus now I've got basketball so it's hard to find time to take official visits. Hopefully I'll be able to take two or three next month."

Rolf has a trip scheduled with Oregon on January 6, and says the Ducks are recruiting him the hardest. "They call a lot and keep in contact the most."

His uncle, Will Tukuafu, from Mesa Community College recently committed to Oregon. "My uncle is gonna go there, plus they always have a large Polynesian population," Rolf said. "It also just seems like a fun place to play."

He reports a 3.3 core GPA and a 17 ACT, which he retook on December 2.
