Scout TV: Nick Rossi

Nick Rossi has offers from WVU, Temple, Akron and Stony Brook and is hearing from Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Rutgers, Connecticut and Duke right now and our readers can see his junior highlights inside.

Riverside High School athlete Nick Rossi plays on both sides of the ball, but the 6-foot-0.5, 230-pounder projects best to linebacker at the collegiate level which is where he's already drawn scholarship offers from West Virginia, Temple and Akron. Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Rutgers, Connecticut and Duke are also in pursuit and his junior film shows a very tenacious defender.



Rossi has attended two National Underclassmen Combines and has won Linebacker MVP Awards at both.

He recorded a 4.75 40-yard dash, a 4.31 short shuttle, a 28.5-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. He also did 35 reps of 185 pounds on the bench press.
