For the association football player, see Fred Rouse (footballer)

Fred Rouse (born December 17, 1984) is a wide receiver for Concordia College, formerly of the Lincoln High School, Florida State University, and UTEP football teams. Declared that he would be the first player to jump straight from the High School level to the NFL. He projected himself as a 4th round pick. On January 20, 2006, it was announced that Rouse and offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis were kicked off the team for what was claimed as "conduct detrimental to the welfare of the football team" by FSU head coach Bobby Bowden. He has often been compared with Randy Moss both athletically and personally. He is gifted with spectacular speed and ability and is a decent target, but his lack of focus also made Bowden furious (also similar to Moss). During Rouse's sole NCAA season, he was in the Seminoles' starting lineup at the 2006 Orange Bowl against Penn State.

In 2006, Rouse was charged, along with former teammate A.J. Nicholson, with breaking into the apartment of former teammate Lorenzo Booker and stealing electronic equipment. Rouse has since transferred to UTEP, where he sat out the 2006 season, due to NCAA transfer rules.

On March 21, 2008, UTEP head coach Mike Price announced that Rouse would not be returning to the team for the 08-09 Football season for personal reasons. Rouse transferred to his current school, Concordia College, Selma located in Selma, Alabama. The school has an enrollment of 500, isn't a FCS program, Division II, Division III, or even an NAIA school. They are 1-1 this season and Rouse, now a 6-foot-4, 210-pounder who is majoring in business management, has caught a pair of TDs.
