If you're talking about doing a "roll" (as in roll, yaw, pitch)...
No, you will not roll when you compress your body while ALREADY IN the air.
If you do it before you leave the ramp, then you "might" do some unintentional roll depending on how you bend down.

If you want to roll, you would have to jump with the rotation like if you were diving backward/forward into a pool...BEFORE you leave the ramp.

If you are talking about "pitch", then what snowolf says is the way to do it. And in context of what you are asking...grabing your nose/tail while ALREADY IN the air will not cause pitch.

And a shiftie does not cause yaw.
