"Maryland, Auburn and Alabama have offered so far," Roderick Sweeting stated. "Auburn is my leader. Alabama is second, and then Maryland. Georgia and Georgia Tech are also in my top five schools." "Maryland is the school that is really focusing on me right now. They send me a lot of stuff in the mail, and they've talked about their tradition. They really want me to come and play safety for them." Sweeting is recruited as both a safety and a cornerback. "Auburn and Alabama want me to play corner for them," he said. "I really feel like I'm a free safety in college. I think that it's a better fit for me." Georgia Tech is also keeping in close contact with Sweeting. Location will factor for the Miami native. "Location will be a factor for me," he said. "I don't want to go too far away. I don't really wanna go any further than Alabama, Tennessee or South Carolina." "An offer from Tech would be great. I've talked to them a lot. My GPA is a 3.0, and they want me to get up to a 3.4. They told me they're really going to consider an offer. I just need to get my grades a little higher." Last season Sweeting had 58 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. He discussed his strengths and what he needs to improve. "I've got a good nose for the ball," he said. "I've got really good coverage skills. I am a good tackler, too. When I get the ball in my hands I know what to do with it." "I need to work on my man-to-man coverage. I need to work on not going off of the first move everytime. I have the speed to make up for my mistakes, but I'm working not to make those same mistakes." Sweeting has a few visits scheduled in the coming months. "I'll be at Auburn this weekend for the combine (Scout.com/Under Armour camp)," he said. "I'll be at Georgia this summer for their camp. I'll be at Georgia Tech's camp on June 14th." Loads of talent will arrive this weekend at the Scout.com/Under Armour camp. Sweeting is ready to display his skills. "I just want to have fun there," he said. "There's going to be a lot of talent there. I want to go there and showcase my own talent. I think that I'm gonna do very well. I think that I have enough talent to compete with the best of the best."
