My thoughts on Tyrik Rollison
By Scott Wright
First of all, let me apologize to the Oklahoma State fans for not finding out sooner that Sulphur Springs (Texas) High School, quarterbacked by OSU recruit Tyrik Rollison, was going to be on television Thursday night. Had I known, it would have been in the paper, I promise.
The Wildcats played Rider High out of Wichita Falls on ESPN2. I didn’t get to watch the entire game, but what I saw from Rollison — a four-star prospect by most recruiting services — was impressive. he moves extremely well and has a rifle for an arm. He (with the help of his team’s defense and some Rider turnovers) brought the Wildcats back from a 10-0 deficit to win 22-16.
From the stats, I could tell Rollison hadn’t been throwing the ball much before I started watching in the second quarter. After completing four of five passes on the Wildcats’ first TD drive just before halftime, Rollison was 6-of-10 for the game.
Once he started throwing, the offense started moving. He has an awkward delivery (very Vince Young-like). Throws off-balance and across his body a lot, but maintains impressive accuracy. He also runs the zone-read play well, which is a staple of OSU’s run game.
