Rogers Lands Third Offer

Junior wide receiver Reggie Rogers helped his Massillon team defeat Canton McKinley 34-7 Saturday. He also picked up his third offer last week.

Massillon defeated arch-rival Canton McKinley 34-7 Saturday in Ohio football action. Junior wide receiver Reggie Rogers was a key to the win for the Tigers.

Rogers, 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, is one of Ohio's top 2015 prospects. He has flourished in the Massillon system following a transfer from Akron Firestone.

"This was an amazing experience and I tried to give my all every play," Rogers stated. "When I walked out of the locker room and saw all these people, I was like "Wow", but then we settled down and played great football."

Massillon broke the game open in the second half with a drive that ended in a Tiger touchdown. Rogers caught a long bomb to set up the score.

"That was a slant-and-go, and the corner kept biting on it all day long," he added. "Danny (Clark) made a perfect throw, and all I had do was catch it. That was a big play in the game, and seemed to really bring them down."

Rogers picked up his third offer last week when Cincinnati made their intention known. He was previously offered by Kentucky and Toledo.

"Cincinnati offered Friday and I'm very happy to get that offer," Rogers admitted. "It's a big one to me, and I plan on getting there for a game and to see their facilities. We spoke for a little bit Friday, and I have to call them back Monday. They are recruiting me as a wide receiver."

"Tennesee, Penn State and Ohio State haven't offered yet, but they are interested in me and I like them a lot," he continued. "I have visits upcoming to Tennessee next weekend, and then I'm going to Penn State for their game with Nebraska. I've been to Ohio State twice, and Coach (Mike) Vrabel said they're close to offering."

"I don't have a favorite school at all," he concluded. "I'm just keeping my options open and trying to find a school I'm comfortable with."
