    ***************************

    Haven't found anything online confirming this but heard from one of Anthony's friends that he has decided to play at CU next year.

    Graduated in 09 and is now playing at Glendale Community College.

    Rose committed to Arizona State out of high school but didn't qualify. (That's kinda sad)

    Still looking for some information online, any help would be appreciated.

    From his 2009 ESPN profile:

    Rose is a fast attacking, very active outside linebacker prospect with marginal size when projecting for the next level. He lacks ideal height but has a rangy, well-built frame with some good muscle tone and the long body to continue packing on good bulk to complement his aggressive style of play. This kid plays fast and physical on every snap and shows equally impressive run and pass support skills. Gets a great jump on the football and shows good fast-twitched and reactive athleticism. Played mainly on the inside in the game films we viewed and still filled hard, fast and sifted well through the fast moving traffic, despite his lack of size. Flashes a great burst of speed chasing plays down between the tackles and his sideline-to-sideline range is just as impressive. Mirrors well in space with good change-of-direction quickness. Good blitzer with his initial burst and first step quickness. Transitions smoothly and closes fast in space. Demonstrates good pop and raw explosiveness on contact. Breaks down well and is sound openfield tackler. Gets good depth in coverage showing smooth hips and turns pattern matching. Our main concern is his lack great bulk when projecting for the next level. Can play high at the point of attack and struggle maintaining his base. Would fit best in a defense that covers him up on the outside and allows him to attack and track down the football. Overall Rose may lack ideal size but he can run, hit cover and has a great nose for the football. Measurables and skill set to develop into a great Bandit/Rover and a demon on special teams.

    Notes
    Has academic concerns... 2007: Recorded 154 tackles and three sacks. Region Defensive Player of the Year...

    Just confirmed with my source but then also confirmed that he is the same source the Tempe used as his source. For this unconfirmed rumor.

    Here's the skinny:

    Rose graduated from Glendale CC in the spring. He is not a 2012 prospect, he'd be a very late addition to the 2011 class. He could redshirt this year since his eligibility clock started during the 2009 season. He had verbally committed to Northern Arizona, but did not go there.

    I heard from sources that there is something to this. Stay tuned.

    Is he now a BCS level prospect? Looks like coming out of HS he was small and was an FCS or D2 prospect. Sometimes guys really mature and develop at the JC level but not always.

    Scout article from May on his verbal to Northern Arizona:

    Rose says he has to finish one summer class before he can head to Flagstaff. "The math class I took for my associate's, they wouldn't take, so I am taking one now before I go up there." Rose says. Once in Flagstaff, Rose will have three years to play two.

    Also, the article mentions that he was only able to play part of the season for Glendale CC. He recorded 39 tackles and 2 sacks. I would guess the injury slowed his recruiting along with him being seen as an academic risk (2.8 GPA at Glendale).

    The 2.8 gives me some concern.

    Don't know if this is worth the risk. 2.8 at Glendale, had to re-take a math class that would not transfer to Northern Arizona. I don't see this ever getting past the CU admission nazis.

    Yeah, but from "let me see what I can do" to this in a couple of hours. Nice work Buffnik!

    That's the strange thing here. The LB group seems to be in okay shape for the next year or two. If we are going to raid the JUCO ranks, I would think that other positions might be of greater interest.
