First Offer For Ohio Sophomore

Reggie Rogers made quite an impression last season as a sophomore two-way starter. The first offer is in for this top 2015 prospect at Massillon.

As a sophomore starter last season for Akron Firestone, Reggie Rogers made quite an impression on both sides of the football. Rogers has since transferred to Massillon, where he will be playing both cornerback and wide receiver.

Rogers, 6-foot, 180-pounds, is one of the top 2015 prospects in Ohio. Last week, he received his first scholarship offer, and more should be on the way.

"I was offered by Toledo and I was very excited to have that offer," Rogers stated. "Most schools are recruiting me as an athlete, and it doesn't matter to me. I will play wherever my coaches feel I can help out the team the most. I'm playing both sides for Massillon."

"The transition to Massillon has been real good, and everybody treats me great," he added. "The weight program is amazing, and it's a lot different than what I'm used to. The seniors have been great to me, and I'm learning a lot from them."

Toledo isn't the only school interested in Rogers, and more offers will be coming his way.

"Getting that first offer and having schools come to see me work out is pretty amazing, and it makes me want to work even harder," he explained. "I've had Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Indiana in to see me this week. Ohio State is coming next week, which is great because I'm going to their camp this year."

"I also want to go to Cincinnati and Toledo for camp," he continued. "Being from Ohio, I have to say Ohio State is my favorite school. I've never been there for a game, and I hope they invite me this year. I've never been to any game or been on any visits yet, so this recruiting stuff is all new to me. I also like Michigan and Michigan State a lot, and they are coming to my school soon."

EVALUATION: Rogers impressed on both sides of the football last year, both at defensive back and wide receiver. He fits well athletically at Massillon, and will continue the tradition of two-way athletes like Gareon Conley and Marcus Whitfield. Right now, he projects as a hard-hitting safety prospect, but with impressive coverage skills. He should play college football in the area of 210-pounds, as he has the frame to carry more weight and keep his speed.
