Rotheram was invited to and attended football games this season at Notre Dame, Illinois, Cincinnati and Bowling Green.  He says two of the schools he is definitely interested in include Illinois and Iowa.

However one other school stands out.

“Ohio State is kind of my dream school,” Rotheram said.  “I am definitely interested in them.  I’ve been to their campus, but I haven’t been in the stadium.”

While Rotheram has not seen the Buckeyes play in person in Ohio Stadium, he has followed them.

“I watch Ohio State on T.V. a lot,” he said.  “Every year they compete for the national championship.  I like their tradition.  Ohio State is close to home and it’s Big Ten football.”

Rotheram, who bench presses 305 pounds, will also participate in track in the spring.  His GPA is close to the 3.0 mark.
