Isaac Rochell played both offensive and defensive line in high school but will join the Irish ranks as a defensive end.
Rochell received offers from the likes of Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Oklahoma but committed to the Irish in June and will add considerable depth to the defensive line. ESPN rates him as a four-star prospect and the 13th best defensive end in the country.
The 250-pounder has a knack for getting in the backfield and is relentless in pursuing the quarterback. He recorded seven sacks and 24 tackles for loss during his junior year. Rochell already has the speed and size to compete in college but can still add bulk to improve his strength.
