DE Dane Rogers Profile
Crest High School [Shelby, N.C.] junior defensive end Dane Rogers visited Clemson in the final
weekend of January for the first Junior Day event of the year.
He hasn't made any stops since the trip to Tigertown.
"I'm planning on going to see some places. I want to see if any other
offers come in, see if they're really showing interest in me," Rogers
said. "If Florida offers, more than likely, I'll try to go down there. I
should be going back to Clemson sometime this summer."
Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State, Rutgers and Tennessee have offered.
"I pretty much tell everybody, in the end, when it comes down to making my
decision, Clemson and Florida are pretty much going to be there."
His cousin, defensive tackle Carlos Watkins, signed with Clemson in
"I loved it. It was my first college football game ever. Now that my
cousin Carlos is going there…to have that option [of playing together] at
a high level, that would be very exciting for both of us and our
families," Rogers said.
Florida is appealing because former Crest linebacker Brandon Spikes had
such a successful career in Gainesville.
"It was just awesome watching him on TV, because it's somebody you know
very well playing on TV for Florida," Rogers said. "Of course, you're
going to be like, ‘Man, I want to go there.'"
As a junior, he had 120 tackles and five sacks.
Scout.com rates Rogers as a three-star prospect.
