Irish Confirm Rock's Offer
Chris Rock is one of the top prospects in the Ohio 2011 class, and the defensive linemen has put together an impressive offer list. Last week, Rock had more visitors inquiring about him at Columbus DeSales High School. "I did receive a new offer from Indiana, and that's great to see," Rock began. "I also had Ohio State in the school last Thursday as Coach (Jim) Tressel stopped by. Ohio State still hasn't offered, and he's not allowed to talk to me, but he told my coach he wanted to keep in touch with me. I will probably get back there for a junior day at some point." "Notre Dame also stopped by the school and they said that my scholarship is still valid," he continued. "(Assistant coach) Tim Hinton stopped by to say that even though I was offered by the previous staff, I still have the offer and they are still recruiting me. They said they still feel the same way about me as they did when they were at Cincinnati. That was good to hear." Rock, 6-foot-4, 245-pounds, is hoping to get out this winter and take some unofficial visits to different schools in the Midwest. "I want to get up to Michigan for sure," he stated. "They have offered and I like them a lot. They've been down lately but I feel confident this staff will get things turned around soon. I'm very interested in Michigan." "I want to go to Notre Dame again too," he said. "I like Notre Dame a lot, mostly because of their great tradition. I want to get back out there to see what they're all about with the new staff, but I know some of those coaches and they're really good." In addition to Notre Dame and Michigan, Rock has offers from Pittsburgh, Stanford, West Virginia, Boston College, as well as several others. "It's hard for me to speak about a lot of schools because I've only been to Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State," he stressed. "I definitely want to get out in the next several months and see different places. I would call myself extremely wide-open when it comes to my recruiting status, and I haven't narrowed down to any type of list at all."
