The first offer is the hardest to get, and sometimes it is the most surprising.
"It feels weird, to be honest," Rodgers said of the first offer. "I don't know how to feel, but it does make me hungrier to get more and work harder."
Rodgers, a 6-1 172 DB, admits he doesn't know a great deal about the Ball State football program, but he does have a friend who can help.
" I don't know much about it (the Ball State program)," Rodgers said. "But I am good friends with (Ball State DT) Chris Crumb and he seems to love it there. And the football teams seems to be pretty consistent which I like a lot."
"I think I'm a very good size for a corner and have length which can give me a slight advantage on the field sometimes," Rodgers said. "Also I am versatile and can play on the offensive side of the ball too. So I feel that I can bring a lot too the field and I could help the program by staying positive and being a good teammate."
