Rochell has seen it all

As a prospect that is being recruiting by almost every school in the country, Eagle's Landing defensive lineman Isaac Rochell has seen it all.

In fact, he has seen most schools more than once.

Rochell has taken visits to Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, and Florida State, but one program he has seen many times is the home state Georgia Bulldogs.

The Rivals100 defender was in Athens this past weekend for UGA's first spring scrimmage, but this trip was a tad different than the rest.

"It was pretty much a day as a player," said Rochell. "I got to do exactly what the players do. I got to go to meetings, and eat the same meals that the players eat. It was a really good visit."

While the four star prospect did get a chance to learn what it was like to be a Georgia player in his visit to the Classic City, not much else was different on this trip.

"I've been there so many times, things were pretty much like they always were," said Rochell. "I like Georgia, and I've said before that I can really see myself there. I know a lot of people there, and I'm from here so I see them all the time."

While Rochell could end up at a variety of different positions at the next level including offensive tackle, defensive end, or defensive tackle, he knows exactly where Georgia plans on putting his talents to use in their 3-4 defense.

"I know they want me at defensive end and some at outside linebacker," said Rochell. "They have told me that already. They want me up front rushing the passer and stuff like that."

Although Rochell is considering schools all over the country at this time, he did acknowledge that distance could play a factor his decision of where to play at the next level.

"I mean, when it comes to distance and it being a factor, I would have to say yes and no," he said. "I'm not worried about getting to far from home or anything, but at the same time, it would be nice to play close to home too. So I'm not sure how big of an impact it will play, but it does matter."

After visiting the Bulldogs over the weekend, Rochell visited Notre Dame on Monday, and has named the Irish his clear leader at this point, and says that he is unsure of when he could make a decision.
