When asked about his commitment, Chris Rogers replied, "Well, I don't know right now. Maryland took me as a corner back and I really want to play safety now. They have already taken two safeties they are really high on. I am not saying I am scared to compete, but if they are high on them already, I don't see me getting a fair shot at playing safety. All the other schools that have offered me said I could play safety," said Rogers.
Rogers has decided to open things up a little.
"I would say I am still committed, but I am going to go on all my
visits. Nothing is certain until signing day."
Alabama was at one point a heavy favorite before Rogers made his commitment.
"I was told that Alabama was still on probation, and they would not be
able to go to any bowl games for a few years and be able to compete. After I
made my commitment, I called Coach Ball and talked to him and he told me that
was not true," said Rogers.
Rogers is interested in three schools.
"My chances are really good at Alabama to be able to go in there and
play. I know their depth chart is thin, and I am only one play away from being in
the rotation. I am also looking at Arizona. I really like Coach Stoops and all
the other coaches at Arizona. I will also be looking at South Carolina. It has
really always been between Maryland and Alabama though."
Rogers says a final decision will come before signing day.
"It will be before signing day when I will know for sure. When I first
made a commitment, I felt like I rushed into it and didn't take the opportunity
to look at all my options," said Rogers.
Playing safety this season, Rogers had a big first game.
"I had 11 tackles playing safety. We won 31-0 against American
Rogers will attend several games this fall.
"I know I will go to some Alabama games. I want to go the Alabama/Auburn
game. I will also check out Arizona and South Carolina," said Rogers.
