Auburn High linebacker commits to Troy (http://dothaneagletroy.blogspot.com/2011/10/auburn-high-linebacker-commits-to-troy.html)

Troy got another commitment this week when Auburn High School linebacker Mitchell Roland committed to Troy.

"I've been up there (to Troy) a couple of times and I really like it," Roland said. "It's like a home away from home and it'll be a good place for me to be."

Roland, who is 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, is being recruited as a middle linebacker for the Trojans. He currently plays that position for AHS.

"I've got good lateral movement," Roland said. "I'm not going to run a 4.3 40, but I'll get to the ball."

Roland is a teammate of current Trojan commitment Cody Core, a wide receiver.

"We talk about it all the time, being Trojan men," Roland said.

Might be a good "two for the price of one deal" . A lot of kids want to keep playing with their buddies from High School.
