The 6-foot-6, 318-pound tackle has played 40 games throughout his four years of college football thus far. He chose Nebraska over Iowa and Oklahoma, all of which he attended for official visits in the last week. He was originally a 3-star prospect from Washington, D.C. with 37 offers, including visits also to Northwestern and Notre Dame. Nebraska extended a scholarship offer to him in high school.
Rouse joins former Arizona State offensive lineman Ben Scott as veteran offensive linemen who arrived in Lincoln for the 2023 via the portal. Returning veteran offensive linemen for Nebraska are Turner Corcoran, Teddy Prochazka, Henry Lutovsky, Hunter Anthony, Ethan Piper and Bryce Benhart. Nebraska has also signed six offensive linemen out of high school as part of the 2023 recruiting class.
