Busy Rouse house buzzing over recruitment

Coming out of his junior season, neither Kevin Rouse or Dan Sharp, his coach at Joliet Catholic Academy, were expecting much early interest from colleges.

"After the season, he told me I probably wouldn't get that many early offers and probably would have to have a good senior year," Rouse recalled.

Soon after the 2006 national signing day though, they found out how wrong they were when Ole Miss offered. Four months later, Rouse is sitting at 17 offers -- including schools like Iowa, N.C. State and Pitt.
