Rollison really is gone
I have a call in to Kelly as well.
Rollison, as you'll recall, was the presumed crown jewel of Auburn's 2009 signing class. He ran into trouble in November, though, and was suspended indefinitely prior to Auburn's game in the Outback Bowl. Rollison didn't make the trip to Tampa. He won't make any trips now.
Sam Houston State has seen this before. Former Oklahoma quarterback Rhett Bomar, who was busted in a pay-for-play scam, played for the Bearkats in 2007 and '08. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He plays for the New York Giants.
Auburn now has four scholarship quarterbacks on the roster:
Neil Caudle, senior
Cam Newton, junior
Barrett Trotter, sophomore
Clint Moseley, redshirt freshman
UPDATE @3 p.m. CST: I spoke briefly with Rollison's father, who was far more reluctant to talk than I expected. ``I wouldn't say it was an easy decision. It was tough, but it was time to move on," Michael Kelly said. After that, though, Kelly said he'd have no additional comment.
