Rohrwasser was asked about what appears to be a Three Percenters tattoo on his left arm during his introductory conference call. The Three Percenters are a “far-right militia movement and paramilitary group.”
“I got that tattoo when I was a teenager,” Rohrwasser said. “I had a lot of family in the military, and I thought it stood for a military support symbol at the time. Obviously, it evolved into something that I did not want to represent. When I look back on it, I should have done way more research before I put any mark or symbol like that on my body. It’s not something I want to represent. So, it will be covered.”
Rohrwasser was selected 159th overall in the fifth round. He started his college career at URI.
