Favorite Quotes:”I feel like the 2013 class can be very special with guys like Mike Heuerman, Jaylon Smith, and other top recruits already committed,” Rochell said. “I feel like Notre Dame has all their ducks in a row to get where they want to go.”
“I just didn’t want to make any rash decisions,” Rochell told IrishSportsDaily.com. “I felt like I needed to show my brother what Notre Dame was about and he loved it just like the rest of my family. I decided that I didn’t want to wait any longer because I can’t really see another school matching what Notre Dame has to offer.
Seer’s Vision: He fits in with what we’ve slowly become known for. BIG, BAD, defensive lineman on the field, and classy students off the field. He is a great fit for running the “five technique” (outside shoulder of the OT) in our 3-4. Has played with a hand up, or a hand down. Shows great wrapping up of opponents, and pass rushing moves. He can stand to add some strength, and explosion. Occasionally plays a bit high, and gets away with it at the high school level. I believe the coaches will remedy that, as well as playing against other elite athletes even if its just during practice the first year. Athleticism at 260 is what everyone is excited about. Excellent get. Furthermore, another one of the guys who seem to be recruiting/gelling. Hard to see us losing this one, but he will be going a long way from home 90%.
