Kevin Rogers Finally Decides

Kevin Rogers had a handful of big-time schools on his list a month or so ago and he watched as one by one, they dropped out for one reason or another. The Texan power forward finally got it done on Thursday.

The Kevin Rogers saga is over.

The South Oak Cliff (Texas) 6-8, 220-pound senior power forward, who was at one time carrying a list that included North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Georgia Tech and Kansas, committed to Baylor on Thursday night.

``It was a hard couple of months with all the twists and turns. ... I felt Baylor was the place where I could come in and make an immediate impact," Rogers said. "I feel comfortable there."

Rogers burst onto the scene in the spring with Team Texas, but had a lackluster July and numerous schools pulled out because of his uninspired play.

However, Rogers has plenty of potential. He can run the floor and can also score in the paint. He was also considering Illinois, SMU and Texas A&M before he chose Baylor.

``I feel that it worked out for the best," Rogers said. "Now I have a lot to prove – and I'm going to prove a lot of people wrong."

Rogers also gave his opinion on where his summer teammate, C.J. Miles, will end up.

``I think he goes to Texas," Rogers said. "I think he's going to stay at home."
