Rogers Looking Closely At Two

Kevin Rogers, the No. 44 prospect in America, is looking at a pair of programs right now. He's seen one and plans are in the works to check out the set up in Waco as well.

Dallas (Tex.) South Oak Cliff 6-foot-8 senior Kevin Rogers is trimming his list. After switching favorites numerous times, Rogers has settled in on a pair.

"Right now it seems as though I may be going to either Georgia Tech or possibly Baylor," Rogers said. "Georgia Tech, I just like they're style of play. With Baylor, it's close to home and I think they may have the best opportunity for me to be there maybe one year and then go to the NBA.

"There are still a couple of schools trying to sneak in. As of right now I don't know."

Of the two schools, Tech is the only one Rogers has visited officially.

"That was a great trip. The thing that impressed me the most was that Coach Hewitt and the staff talked about life after basketball and that really impressed me. Instead of them promoting basketball they were worried about me after basketball."

Rogers likes the set up at Baylor and could wind up visiting the school the weekend of Oct. 2. However, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Rogers makes the trip this weekend.

Baylor seems to be firmly in the mix. "They're in a big time conference. I can go in that conference and be seen by pro scouts. I think a lot of people might think that two years at the most for me in college and that might be the best fit for me."

According to Rogers, Illinois, Florida, Texas A&M and SMU have shown recent interest.
