Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) defensive back Spenser Rositano manned a cornerback spot as a sophomore in 2008, tallying 59 tackles, five pass break-ups and two interceptions on the year. The 6-1, 190-pound prospect moved to safety this past season and flourished, amassing 129 tackles with five pass break-ups and three fumble recoveries. Rositano was a big reason why the Bulldogs made the Group AAA, Division 5 state championship game in 2009, and now he hopes for success on the recruiting trail.
Rositano has yet to receive a Division 1 scholarship offer, but interest does seem to be there.
“With the coaches I’ve talked to, they want me to be a little bigger so I can play outside linebacker or strong safety,” Rositano said. “School-wise, I’m hearing from UVa and Syracuse. ODU, U-Conn and Virginia Tech were in my school. I’ve also met a Maryland coach and a Duke coach.”
Last summer, Rositano attended camp at UNC and Ohio State and was pleased with both experiences.
“I loved Ohio State,” he said. “My dad sort of raised me to be a Buckeye. I enjoyed that trip. With UNC, I love the campus. I didn’t get a chance to meet the coaches then, but the campus is top notch.”
Rositano has also been to Virginia Tech and Virginia. He has visited the latter school at least three times now, with the most recent trip being to a junior day on January 16th.
“It was sweet,” Rositano recalled of the Virginia junior day experience. “Virginia has a beautiful campus. I didn’t realize how nice it was. From a personal standpoint, I really like the coaches now. They are laid back, but they know when it’s time to get down to business. They didn’t really talk about an offer. They just talked about seeing me in the future and they hope I come back down to the school. Hopefully, my film will impress them.
“With Virginia Tech, I’ve been up there for a baseball game. They’ve got a really nice campus. They have real good facilities and stuff. They said they really liked my film. They like the way I hit. They’ve talked to me, (RB) Marcus [Harris] and (DE/TE) Rob [Burns] and they’ve invited us to come to camp in June.”
