Lexington wide receiver Shaq Roland (6-2, 180) will visit Florida and then make his commitment, Wildcats coach Scott Earley said Friday.
A date for that visit has not been set. It could take place later this spring or it might not be until the summer when Roland's AAU team plays in a tournament in Gainesville. Earley said the commitment definitely would be made before the start of practice.
USC has been the strong leader for Roland, and nothing has altered that, according to Earley.
USC recruiter Brad Lawing was recently by the school to check on Roland. Recruiters from Clemson, Alabama and Miami also have been in.
Never miss a local story.
Lexington will open spring practice Monday. Earley said Roland will not particpiate in any contact drills during the spring.
Earley said Roland's surgically repaired shoulder is fine, and he is holding Roland and several others out of contact this spring.
Roland was named the 20th-best Class of 2012 prospect in the nation last month by recruiting analyst Tom Lemming. He was the highest-rated player in South Carolina.
As a junior, he accounted for more than 1,700 yards from scrimmage and 39 total touchdowns.
He projects as a wide receiver, though he could be a dangerous return man or line up as a Wildcat quarterback in some packages.
Roland also plans to play basketball at the next level.
