- PLAYER: Casey Roddick
- SCHOOL: Colorado Buffaloes
- SIZE: 6-4, 310 pounds
- RANKING: 3-star
From when he committed to the Seminoles:
The 6’4”, 310 pound Roddick spent five years with the Colorado program, redshirting his first season before earning 26 starts and seeing time in 38 total games over the next four seasons. Roddick primarily played offensive guard and will be expected to provide experience and leadership along the offensive line.
What sets Roddick apart, however, is his journey to get to this point. In early 2021, Roddick tested positive for COVID-19, which led to a diagnosis of myocarditis. Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart wall, and has been found as a cause of death for athletes who were otherwise healthy. Roddick overcame his health scare and was named a team captain in 2022.
