Rogers Has Top Three

2012 Carson (Calif.) wide receiver Darreus Rogers made a commitment to USC in January, but has learned that there are still two other schools in the picture.

Although 2012 Carson (Calif.) wide receiver Darreus Rogers has been committed to USC for six months, the prospect admits that he is not 100% sold on the Trojans.

USC remains in Rogers' list of top three, but the Trojans are on equal footing with the other two schools still on the recruit's mind, Arizona State and Washington.

"At this point it's a tie between all three," Rogers confirms.

Rogers traveled to Tempe this past weekend and was in attendance at ASU's Maroon and Gold Camp on Sunday.

"Going to ASU, it was a good experience," Rogers tells "It was great. They treat me well and they put me in a position that if I went there I could get the ball. I like the atmosphere and the weather; it's always sunny out there. The coaches are really cool; they told me that I could be a big playmaker at a big school."

"I think I did really well," Rogers says of his performance at ASU's Maroon and Gold Camp. "I went out there and tried my best, just tried to make every play I could."

Rogers says he is often in contact with the coaches in Tempe, which he believes is within the ideal vicinity from his home in California.

"Arizona is still driving distance, so it's not that bad," he explains.

The Huskies have also caught Rogers' attention.

"I like the offense," Rogers says of what stands out to him about Washington. "I have a cousin that goes there (Corey Waller); he tells me that the coaches are really nice and he tells me about their offense and how it is out there. I'm interested in them and their program."

Rogers doesn't hesitate to explain that his commitment to USC is merely a soft verbal, but he claims the Trojans are still amongst his favorite programs.

"USC is close to home," Rogers shares. "I like the offense, and they treat me right too."

What's going to be the most important factor for the 6-foot-2, 195-pound athlete?

"Going in and playing as a freshman," Rogers answers. "Wherever I get the opportunity to play my first year, that's most likely where I'm headed."

The wide receiver says he intends to wait until Signing Day to make a final decision.
