Alabama offensive lineman Rod Orr updates his recruitment, has several SEC schools among his top options
Rod Orr has a long list of scholarship offers but with his senior season of high school right around the corner, five programs are currently standing out to the Gadsden City High School product.
The 6-foot-7, 296-pound Gadsden Ala., native is rated as a three-star prospect, the No. 28 offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 13 overall prospect from the state of Alabama in the 2021 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. According to 247Sports’ individual recruiting rankings, Orr is listed as a four-star prospect in the 2021 class.
Either way, Orr has his eyes current set on three Southeastern Conference programs: Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee are the league teams that made his top five, in addition to FSU and Oregon. Arkansas, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Memphis are among the schools that have extended scholarship offers to Orr but are not currently listed in his top five.
If you didn’t know, Orr is the cousin of Tennessee receiver commit, Roc Taylor. We will have to wait to find out if that gives the Vols an edge in his recruitment.
