To say that it’s been quite a week for Anthony Rose would be a major, major understatement.
The business of recruiting is sometime referred to as a copy cat one, especially when it comes to offering a player. Anthony Rose may have benefited from that, as the talented junior 2022 cornerback has received eleven offers in the last five days, including one from Pitt.
Rose is very intriguing prospect as he’s a 6-foot-4, 180 pound defensive back with tremendous ball skills. The Crib South Florida, a recruiting service in Florida had an interesting description of Rose saying “has a frame to make scouts drool and junior production (four interceptions). His un-coachable length, combined with plus athleticism means sky-high potential.”

Programs across the country are noticing this as just in the last week, Rose has received offers from Pitt, Maryland, Penn State, UAB, South Carolina, LSU, Kansas, Florida International, Tennessee, Syracuse and Mississippi State.
Pittsburgh Sports Now was able to catch up with this in demand recruit from Hallandale, Florida to find out about his latest offer from Charlie Partridge and the Pitt Panthers.
“I first got a call from my coach telling me that I had the offer from Pitt,” Rose said. “I then was able to hear from Coach Partridge and he told me congratulations, we really love your film.”
Rose says that the thing that he heard from Pitt and from other coaches is how they’re impressed with his size and the way that he attacks the football. In terms of his 6-foot-4 inch frame, Rose still believes he’ll play safety or corner in college but then said he’ll play wherever the coaches want him to play.
“All these offers I’m receiving and the interest I’m getting is really mind-blowing but I’m just trying to remain humble and will respect the process and keep working and grinding,” said Rose. “The best advice I’m getting is from people telling me not to let all of this get to my head. Keep grinding and your time will come.”
All of this happened so fast for Rose that he’s still in the process of getting to know coaches and program so he doesn’t have a favorite at this time but admits his favorite team growing up has always been Alabama.
