The No. 10 middle linebacker in the country, according to, Clemson has offered Rogers as an outside linebacker.

A junior at Buford High School in Georgia, he spoke with CUTigers on Saturday night after the visit.

"I had a good time down there. I liked it," Rogers said.

It was his first trip to Tigertown since the South Carolina game.

"Everything was pretty much the same," he said. "The only new thing that stood out to me was the indoor facility. Last time I was there, that was not finished. I got to see it today. That was pretty cool. I liked it in there."

While in town for the spring game, Rogers was able to speak with Dabo Swinney, Brent Venables and Tony Elliott.

"It was sort of catching up," Rogers said. "They just said they like my physicality of play and my matureness, I'm a student-athlete.

"They're trying to improve the D through linebacker. With a good defense and the Clemson offense, it could take them somewhere. They're looking for a new start on defense. They're going to lose some linebackers this year…they said they could use some linebackers.

"If I was to go to Clemson, I would have a chance to play early. But they're not promising anything. Like every other school, you have to earn your position. You can't go there and just automatically start. I would have a chance to go there and play early, but nothing's given."

Earlier this spring, Rogers visited Tennessee to watch the Volunteers practice. He also made a spring visit to Auburn.

Who leads?

"Top five would be Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, Auburn and South Carolina…I would say it's in order."

A commitment will be made over the summer, sometime before the start of his senior season.
