News Takes Rogers by Surprise

Coach Kirk Olivadotti delivered good news to 2014 Buford linebacker Korie Rogers Friday.

After participating in the 7-on-7 camp held in Athens, Olivadotti, the Bulldogs linebackers coach, offered Rogers a scholarship.

The news came out of nowhere for Rogers, a 6-2, 200-pound standout.

"Actually, no I wasn't expecting it," he said. "I was just going to play at the camp with my team."

Rogers said he wasn't aware of how aggressively the Bulldogs were recruiting him to this point, but the offer clearly states Georgia's interest.

The feeling is mutual, to a certain degree.

"I've liked Georgia growing up," Rogers said. "My dad is a big fan, but now that I'm older I don't really have a college team. I grew up watching the Bulldogs, but I started liking Texas for a while, too."

Still with nearly two years before he'll be signing his letter of intent, Rogers' recruitment has recently picked up momentum. East Carolina, Florida and Penn State have also offered. Rogers has no idea how he'll go about handling the process at this time.

"I'm just doing my thing right now," he said.

At this time, the Bulldogs have offers out to Rogers and Raekwon McMillan at the inside linebacker position in the 2014 class.
