Orlando, FL (Future150) -- Those who follow the Nike EYBL circuit already know that Team Florida didn't have the type of season that many had hoped for. While they finished a dissapointing 3-17 and failed to make Peach Jam there is some optimism heading into the July period. Much needed help is on the way in the form of 6-foot-4 shooting guard Jorge Rosa.
For those who don't know the Faith Christian Academy (FL) star yet, you will. After averaging over 20 points at his old school, Life Academy (FL) during the season and playing with a lesser known AAU squad, Rosa is looking to prove that he belongs in the conversation for Florida's top rising seniors. The move to FCA for his senior year will only help him as will playing with Q6 All-Stars for the rest of the AAU circuit.
While he is a relative unknown nationally, colleges have already begun to pursue the smooth shooting guard. He currently holds offers from Tulane, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, and Florida-Gulf Coast University. While those schools would love to garner a commitment from Rosa, they are far from the only ones interested in him. He lists interest from Virginia Tech, Miami, Clemson, Georgia, Colorado, South Florida, and George Mason, amongst others.
When asked what he is looking for in a program Rosa replied, " I am looking for great academics, that is my main priority. I'm also looking for a great relationship with the coaching staff. I want to feel like they truly want what is best for me and that they are going to be there for me at all times, on and off the court. And lastly I am looking for a great tradition and fan base. I feel like when the crowds are into the game and the school loves basketball as much as I do they motivate me to play better and that's when I feel I am at my best." He went on to say that Florida State is his dream school and it is worth mentioning that he recently attended their elite camp.
Ultimately this summer will be a big one for Rosa, who is excited to prove that he is a high major prospect and one of the top players in Florida.
