R.J. Roderick plays quarterback and safety at Cane Bay High in Summerville and has offers from school for both positions. On Monday he visited South Carolina and landed an offer as a defensive back.
“I really felt at home and appreciate the love Coach Muschamp, TRob and the staff showed me,” he said. “They are very determined and dedicated to me becoming a student-athlete there. I look forward to continuing building a relationship with them and increasing my comfort level. It’s a committable offer and they said they’ll be in contact consistently.”
Roderick (6-0, 207) said he will return to USC on April 29. As for where that offer puts the Gamecocks on his list, Roderick replied, “Top spot.”
As a quarterback last season Roderick rushed for 1,778 yards and 23 touchdowns. He also believes his leadership skills match what he does on the field.
“I am a nonverbal leader,” he said. “I lead by example and speak with athleticism.”
He also has offers from Virginia, East Carolina, SC State, Army, Citadel, Air Force and Wofford.
